I am a little over it. My skin has been sore for around a month now, and while I know it will return to its own kind of normal soon, the pain is a burden. I am physically tired, and tired of saying that I am not ok.
I am sore. The hospital stay did me good. It healed my legs, and I got rest. But on returning home, my top half became very sore. It burned and throbbed, and moving, sitting, lying and walking was hard. Wearing clothes has been hard. Being in bed has been hard. Going to work has been hard. It is hard.
My skin is going through its whole body shed. I’m willing it to heal before my birthday next week.
This kind of soreness is not the most private soreness. My hands and wrists are red raw and peeling. I walk slower, move slower and smile less. My feet will shed their skin soon, and that is the worst – it’s just so painful to walk on. I don’t feel like my usual happy self. Things are piling up and I jut want to get them done. But I also just want to rest.
I will be ok soon. But soon can’t come soon enough. I guess it’s good that I am mentally strong, because this pain is enough to tear anyone apart.
Anyway, enough of being a misery guts. Today I’m going to go to the cinema and do a little retail therapy. I’m going to try to write some articles. And I had some good news yesterday. I’ve been asked to help give a lecture at a university next year! So excited!
What’s on for your day?
This post is for the Reverb12 project. I’m not sure if the reflections are supposed to be this negative, hah! I shall toughen up, princess;)
