Well everything just won't be perfect n thats ok

I've been going crazy trying to get so many things done, and it hit me this morning... It's nt going to all get done n that's ok... Ive been pretty sick for quit awhile, there's a big backlog in my house n it isn't all gonibg to get under control this week.
I've been bleeding n spotting all month so this isn't the time for all the catching up - I m having this surgery so maybe I can feel well enough to catch up later.... Until then I will just have to try hard to jus let things be.... They won't be going anywhere..... N be grateful n accepting of dh help even if he doesn't do it like I would or on my schedule . I think if I can let go of the illusion of control I'll heal faster and better. " let it be" is going to be my mantra.... What do you all think?

Re: Well everything just won't be perfect n thats ok

Hi Sammer

"Let it be" is a great mantra to have and remind yourself of it whenever it is needed.

DH and DS have been really great and done everything to the best of their abilities and with a lot of love and care too. Ok, so the washing hasn't been hung quite as I'd do it and the corners of the kitchen floor haven't been hoovered quite as well as I'd like but hey, I'm recovering and one thing I know about myself is that my body can't relax if my mind isn't relaxed so I have worked hard at relaxing my mind.

I am nearly 6 weeks post-op and still taking it very easy at home. There is only one opportunity to recover well and this is the time to look after yourself and when you are recovered you can tackle anything that needs to be done.

It is ok if there is dust, it is ok if there is dirt and it is ok if the shirts get hung up with a sleeve inside out... (well, actually that wasn't ok but I turned it the right way without anybody seeing) but the point is that it is all ok and if we are lucky enough to have somebody at home who will help we must grab their help with both hands, smile and say thank you and above all... "let it be".

Re: Well everything just won't be perfect n thats ok

Thanks for your support Mrs. B! Yes...there is already dust (I should be used to it) - I've been feeling very ill all summer and especially the last two months..but it does get to me....and yes....there may be some spill (on the cabinet I have to wipe up) but I won't bend over - the floor will have to be what it is! And yes this is the one time to heal right...I had major abd surgery in 1992 for a large ovarian cyst at the age of 27 and no one gave my post-op instructions as what not to do at the time...that is the reason I think I have so many adhesions now....so I won't make that mistake again!
Thanks to this site and people like you - I know better now...I will let it all just be and get well the right way!
Glad to hear you are on your way up! Best wishes!

That is good positive talk

Will be thinking of you as you get closer to your op and sending lots of healing thoughts your way.

I am the same way. I am having my surgery on the 10th & all I have done this week is clean. Im driving myself crazy cleaning! I cant seem to get stuff clean enough. I think it helps to keep my mind busy.

Re: Well everything just won't be perfect n thats ok

Dont drive yourself crazy with the notion of having your house spotless. I made a long list of things to do b4 my surgery and not even half of them got done. I had too much going on at work and 2 weekends before my surgery, my cycle started and I came down with a really bad head cold. Needless to say, I still cleaned like a crazy woman and almost pulled a muscle in my side. That was my wake-up call and from then on I did what I could and said to heck with the rest. Dust bunnies and mopped floors were not more important than my health. It is important to build up your strength and get as much rest as you can before your surgery! Best wishes for a successful surgery & recovery!
