Not feeling so great

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

This is my other favorite picture of my future pup. Doesn't she have a pretty stance? I just love her and I have not met her yet! I get her on Friday, but not till late afternoon. I'm bummed about that, I wanted to get her as early as possible in the day so we could have the day together. Oh-well. Her vet appointment is that morning and the vet usually runs very late, so I'm stuck with late afternoon. I still get her, even though it is not in my timing, so I'm still excited and elated. Her name is Hope. It's a 2 hour drive to get her.

I have knee surgery tomorrow, just a minor one, should be healed in a week. I was hoping to have it last week but they were booked solid. It's my left knee so I should be able to drive as long as I'm not on pain meds. We'll see. I'll be glad once it has healed so that I can go upstairs without pain. According to my fitbit I go up 82 flights of stairs a week, and that is with me minimalizing the times I go up and down stairs, so normally it would be a lot more.

I'm still having a rough time, anxiety is no fun to have. I'm still making myself get out and do things I'm supposed to be doing like errands and meeting friends. That is why I'm really not doing good now, making myself do those things takes its toll on me. Depression is creeping up on me and I really hope that getting Hope (my pup) will help banish that. I've messaged my p-doc so he knows what is going on. I had to cancel with my therapist this week because it was too close to my surgery time. Bummer.

I have pictures up of my pup on my computer and she is my background on my phone. An attempt to cheer me up.

I won't be on for a few days, I'll need to recover from my surgery and then will have Hope to keep me busy.

Keep Sparking!

    Hope is gorgeous and I know Pickles will take her to after awhile. Praying for your successful knee surgery and continued success with the weight progress.
    Sorry the anxiety and depression are hitting you. Sounds like you know what to do to overcome it. All in baby steps!

    I will keep you in my thoughts and prayer for an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery. Take time to heal so you and Hope can go for fun walks and lots of play time.
