out of commission

bouquet

I don't know how else to put this but at the moment I'm recovering from a minor surgical procedure and it'll be very difficult to blog regularly for a while. It's nothing too serious, just really unbelievably painful and I won't be fully recovered for another month. I also can't keep up with my difficult 8am to 5:30pm schedule in this condition, so I have to drop two of my classes and take them next semester instead. So yup, I can't graduate this Spring like I'd intended to and I have to live with this for the next few weeks. I'm confused, worried, and disappointed but I just have to remember that it could be much worse. Thankfully I have my amazing boyfriend who has been taking care of me on his days off and has made the pain a lot more bearable even when the vicodin doesn't seem like enough. Even with all of these sudden changes to my life, I'm trying my best to keep my head up and not end up depressed but it's going to be difficult. Thanks for hanging in there, guys.

Anna said...

I'm so sorry you're in pain. Try to think of this as a sort of enforced period of relaxation/time out created for you by fate/the universe/God - whatever you believe in. Try to make the best of a bad situation - catch up on reading, watching bad TV, whatever relaxes you. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Love your blog and your style!
Best wishes,
Anna

A skipped semester is nothing in comparison to your health! Don't give up your plans, just temporarly delay and improve them:) Find a new obsession and try not to think of pain. Stay positive! Treat yourself with goodies and let others treat you! (At least that's what I did after being in hospital:))

Get well soon!

x, Tina

You are beautiful both inside and out.

P.S. The up-side is you're taking the same pills as House, which is pretty damn cool.
... Sorry, just love both you and the show. Had to connect 'em.

Leslee said...

I hope you get better soon. And try not to be to bummed out, think of it as life trying to tell you to slow down a bit. Things don't always go as planned but there's always a reason for it. Wish you all the best, smile. x)

I am very upset to hear this as this is definitely one of my favorite blogs. Your personality and style come through in both the pictures and content and you seem like an awesome person. I can totally empathize with the frustration about not graduating. Anyways, I really wish you a speedy and full recovery.
Best,
