I'm sort of ready to get back to real life. I am still having some real shoulder discomfort and after weaning off the loritab this weekend I am feeling more sore. I am also having some discomfort in my upper diaphragm, I am assuming that is where the hernia was repaired.
There is also only so much yogurt and soft liquidy type foods one can take. I am pretty low energy and think that will help when I transition to mushies. Mostly, I can not believe I am on the other side. I can't lie- I love the feeling of not being hungry. Physically hungry. I am noticing that I seem to want to munch at night regardless of the hunger- my mind is so used to the habit. I am trying to be clear on the emotion, address it and move on. I think there will be a lot of that in my future.
I wonder if that emotional need/desire to snack will ever go away? Veteran bandsters?
