I'm sorry you're not feeling well, and hope you feel better soon. Even though I was stuck working at home today, the sun sure did help. And it looks like we have sun until Thursday. I'm sending lots of love your way!

ah, yes. after my prolonged illness last month (minor compared to what you've been through) i've struggled to get back to feeling like my 'normal' self. i keep wondering if it's aging, if my biochemistry changed from being sick so long, why i can't get back to feeling strong, healthy and happy. it is a slow road back to the jousting self once your physical health has been beached.
the only answer i've found is slow, and sympathetic towards myself (so hard to do, alas). fiery personalities do not take well to being down and not bouncing back immediately.
best wishes to you as you make your way through the aftermath and re-equilibrate. with time, it will come. in the meantime, remember that you are beautiful, just how you are. (i know, it is one thing to tell yourself that, it is another to feel it. sigh.)
