I’m having a rough go of it recently.
Recovering from my operation has been tough. I’m finding it hard to balance being active and resting. Some days I feel really good so I’ll go and do Some Stuff, but it will exhaust me so I have to stop and rest for a few days.
Plus, my face is doing odd things in it’s bid to heal. I’m getting pain again as my nerves and muscles are waking up/protesting against their new positions.
Speaking of, my new face is weird. It’s still so weird to see it in the mirror. It’s like I’m having to learn how to do stuff again; like, forming words, smiling, chewing, brushing my teeth.
But I like it. For the most part, I am happy with my new face. I like how:
- My teeth meet
- I don’t look gormless when my mouth falls open when I’m sleepy or concentrating
- My lips are in line
- I can breathe through my nose naturally and easily
- My lips look awesome
I’m feeling generally positive about my body. It’s curvy and round and has lumps and bumps. But it’s mine. And it’s gotten me through some really horrible things. And it looks damn good a lot of the time too.
