The past 10 days have been a pain in my ass.
Not being able to do anything for myself has gotten frustrating and has left me feeling miserable. I am sick of laying on my couch, watching horrible Hallmark movies. I miss sleeping in bed next to Leland, and I miss being able to stand up while I take a shower. The days are always the hardest for me because I spend a significant amount of time alone.
At first the alone time was kinda cool. But after 2 days, I just got lonely.
And laying on the couch as sucked every ounce of motivation out of my body.
Leland is doing a great job of taking care of me, and when he is home with me he does an even better job of cheering me up. He'll make faces at me or do funny dances around the living room. His stand-up routine is getting better and I really think he needs to hit up an amateur night somewhere.
Though I know this isn't a very optimistic post, I AM getting better. I made it from the couch to the office all by myself. The pain isn't nearly as bad as it once was and I am hoping to be able to go back to work next Monday. Until then, I am trying to keep myself busy. I have had a few friends go above and beyond the call of duty to take care of me and keep me company. My younger sister has been amazing and always willing to babysit me whenever Leland was working late or had band practice. Some people I didn't even realize I was that close with showed up at my house to hang out with me or called me out of the blue to see how I was feeling. Though I am a sad and grumpy bugger right now, I know I am lucky to have so many people who care about me and want to help me get well.
