Thinking of you @scared01 and sending you the best of luck with the loan
Well done for being so proactive, especially with that list. It sounds like a great way to keep on top of things.
I believe in you!
im trying to get as much done as I possibly can. im embarrassed at the state of my house so I really want to focus on that for the next few days while im waiting on workmen to do repairs and things. its abit hard cause the appointments are so spread out as well so I cant really do much list checking till those are done too.
im taking some time here and there for myself. mostly just watching some movies or chatting on here.
I agree with everyone - it's awesome that you're taking such a proactive approach with all of this. Creating the list was an awesome idea, and even though lists can sometimes be overwhelming, they can also make you feel prepared and on top of everything, which is a great feeling.
It's awesome that you are taking some time out for yourself as well. You are doing all the right things . What self-care might you do for yourself today?
I guess part of the overwhelm and being frantic and overly prepared for things is because this will be my first surgery. not only is it my first surgery its also the longest time I will have been away from the person I care for and even with supports I worry how he will be, I am also 2 hours away from home, in a city I don't know, in a hospital im unfamiliar with. everything is way out of my comfort zone. the things with family are tricky. weve worked out the boundaries as in they wont be far away if I need them but they aren't going to pester me they will let me msg them if I need something and just msg every now and then if they haven't heard from me in more then an hour or so. I have to go to the preoperation appointments on my own so im feeling quite overwhelmed with it all.
ive been at work all day. both of them actually so ive only just finished and got home from about 7 oclock this morning. ive just put an easy dinner on, made myself a cup of tea and put on a movie to watch. I think that's a good start, ill have a shower abit later too
It sounds prettry scary to be having a surgery so far away from home and the people you love
Wow, I think it's great you've already sorted out the boundaries. You seem very prepared. Dinner and a movie sounds awesome! What's the dinner and movie?
I just made a one pot stew and im watching the pitch perfect series. im watching part 2 now.
