Slow recovery

Monday, December 03, 2012

I know recovery takes as long as it takes. It's been 3 days now and my face is extremely swollen. My lips are swollen and numb (probably from the Fraxel) that it's hard to keep food and liquid in my mouth long enough to swallow. My eyes are swollen so it's hard to see, but it's also hard to completely close them. Whenever I am in the middle of something I have to remind myself over and over that there will be an end. I've been through this before, 17 years ago, so not only does healing take place, the whole thing got so far behind me I decided to do it again. What was I thinking?? I know that 3 months from now I'll be thrilled, but for now I am feeling very sorry for myself.

What would a self-pity emoticon look like? Can I be the only Sparker who needs one?
