The healing process

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

My arm hurts like Hades right now, and I suspect it is going to hurt for a while yet.

I sat for 4 1/2 hours for my tattoo yesterday. It wasn't too bad at first. There were a few places that pinched, but nothing i couldn't deal with. By the time hour 3 rolled around, pretty much everything hurt. The last 45 mins was the worst pain of the entire process. It was painful. Although, I can say it wasn't the most painful thing I have ever had done, it was still painful.

Today, it hurts worse than it did yesterday. I know I am going to bruise too. I bruise so easy... heck, I even have bruised knees from doing these kneeling squat things and lunges where you go down so low you touch your knee to the floor... so yeah, I am going to bruise.

I am not sure how long I am going to take off from PC Fit. The thing is... I am working the next 9 days straight! I know that doesn't sound like much, but when you are working 12 hour shift overnight, it is a lot. I don't mind doing it because I just keep thinking of all of that $$$ that I am going to get. That will be a nice start for my winter wardrobe since all of my winter clothes are now too big.

Anyway, I hope all of my Spark friends have an awesome day!

    I am so happy that you love it!
Hang in there! You had RNY, not scared of pain.
Resting for 9 days will be a good thing. It makes you REALLY miss it. Love the process. And happy winter clothes shopping!
