My pro-op diet starts on May 31. Just 8 days away. Things feel like they're becoming more and more real as the days pass.
I see a steady shift in my attitude toward food. Right now I'm doing a little of the last supper thing and eating stuff that will be difficult/off limits to eat for a while, though I am eating much less. I've had a few emotional ups and downs the past few days. Mentally I feel a little exhausted by all of this and ready for the surgery to be over with already. I went for a deep tissue massage yesterday to relieve some of this tension and I feel like I got my ass kicked. Seriously, I am much less tense, but I am definitly bruised and think I prefer swedish massage going forward. My body just doesn't respond super well to deep tissue digging. I'm a little ouchy today and it's making me a little on the grumpy side.
