So....today marks one week since I underwent the surgery to Reconstruct my ACL and treat my knee's cartilage, it's Monday, I'm on the couch, in lots of pain and still using crutches to move around....this has been definitely the hardest 7 days that I been through with my body, and it's getting hard not to feel sorry for myself. But I just came across a post about mental health that changed my attitude "self acceptance (of our bodies, of our limitations, of realities even when they are deeply uncomfortable) is all we have. When we let it flood us, the sky goes blue again. The sun is yellow and grass is green. And we walk one foot then one foot, asking to be refilled with the spirit of creativity and curiosity" Patience, self acceptance ,and all the love and help I'm receiving is getting me through.
