Aggravation

Thursday, May 15, 2014

I am a calm person for the most part, but now and then I have a mood swing that is downright UGLY! On those days, I really, really, really want a punching bag. I have no place to put one at home other than in the wide open, with no protection, so it would wear out fast from the heat, humidity, cold, etc. the weather in MO throws at us. I really need a covered gazebo with a heavy bag hanging in it an an electric outlet so I can listen to music, beat the crap outta something, and then relax with a cup of coffee or tea.
I'm beyond aggravated these days with a lot of stuff, both home and work related. I love my family more than anything in the world, but they tick me smooth off sometimes. I also love my job as a Special Education teacher, but I HATE the politics and crap that goes along with it. I just want to teach my kiddos. I have summer break coming up-I'm having surgery the first week of June and have been told to expect to be down 4-6 weeks before I can begin to try to get back to normal. I've made so much progress fitness wise, and this is aggravating, because I'll have to restart, again. But the surgery is important, so I will have it and get back to walking ASAP. Probably sooner than anyone will want me to.
I refuse to put back on the few pounds I've lost.

    Hang in there. Also, discuss with your surgeon what you can do during the recovery process. There might be some seated exercises you can do to prevent weight gain. Also, remember not to beat yourself up if you do gain after surgery. You will likely have swelling and fluid retention, which is not really a "true" weight gain, but part of the healing process.

May I be so bold as to ask what type of surgery? I will understand if it is none of my business, but I am a Physical Therapist Assistant, and have helped several patients following knee replacements and shoulder surgeries.
