Today In Oz – October 14, 2009

Here is a new “Today In Oz”

Enjoy!!

Frustration

I am in the process of writing a blog about my jaw surgery, and it has been in the works for like two weeks, but I can’t make myself finish it.

I believe a lot of it has to do with the fact that I am so frustrated about the whole thing anyways, I am just ready for it to be over and forgotten.

I am at my three week mark today, and I am still not able to eat anything but crap and even when I do that it is frustrating and I lose my appetite in like two seconds because I can’t chew very well yet.  Sometimes I don’t even know if I am chewing or not because my mouth is so numb still.

The numbness is frustration enough in itself.  When I smile it feels like I have tons of crap stuck all over my face and it is weird.  REALLY weird.

But I guess it could be worse.  At least it is getting better.  But it is getting to the part where the rest of the lingering recovery is going to take a REALLY LONG TIME.  I am sad about that, because I am ready to be normal again.

I need this opportunity to vent.  If you read this I appreciate your support.
