This Friday I’ll be having my surgery to fix my inguinal hernia. It’s gotten worse since I first had it and they’ll no longer be able to do the procedure laparoscopically; they’ll need to make a large incision directly over the hernia to patch it up. I’m a little scared. I have a huge anxiety when it comes to Doctor visits and hospitals. I’m also worried about being put to sleep. What if I wake up too early? What if I don’t wake up? I’m sure it’ll be fine.
I haven’t been able to sleep much lately. My insomnia has been getting pretty bad. Each night I’d have only 2 – 4 hours sleep. The only way I’d get a decent night’s rest would be after having blacked out from too much to drink. I know that’s not much better for me either.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me to be honest. I guess I just have a lot going on right now and my mind just won’t shut off. Hopefully having this surgery, having tons of pain meds, and having a bunch of days off to recover will help me get some rest.
Thanks everyone for the positive vibes and good luck wishes. It feels nice to know you guys care.
Thank you also for still following my blog. I love hearing people say “I used to read your blog!”…but I think I love hearing “I love/read your blog!” more.
