My surgery for my second cochlear implant went well. My surgeon said, 99% of her patients are happy they got a second one. I am so grateful for her skillfulness!
Today is the 5th day of recovery, and of course I wish I was feeling back to normal, but like anything else, it takes time.
Hubs has been taking me out for short drives, and we have been on several short walks outside!
I will be fitted for my processors in the middle of November.
Time and patience is needed here.
In fact, recovery from addiction needs time and patience.
I want everything to hurry up and be ready, and ok right now!
Life just doesn’t work like that, and healing from anything has its own pace.
It will take as long as it takes.
|On Our Walk!|
Luckily, we have many people who can support our healing, if we seek them out and let them.
I find healing help from this surgery with my on-line friends, friends, and family, as well as hubs.
I found healing help from drinking, with yoga teachers, friends, AA peeps, on-line friends, family, and a therapist.
Writing helps me heal.
Even walking outside and taking photos has helped my healing in both!
Keep reaching out for help if you want to get sober. Keep an open mind on what might help you. Don’t shut doors before they even open.
Be your bravest self, and make that leap of faith.
I promise, it is a better life, a real life.
With Two Ears Coming,
On Day 1516,
