I highly encourage everyone - spoony or not - to check out The Spoon Theory Demonstration; it’s like a “choose your own adventure” type game based on Christine Miserandino’s “Spoon Theory”, which helps people understand what it’s like to live with an invisible illness.
Anyone who doesn’t understand chroic illness, please try this. Maybe you’ll understand not only my life a bit better, but the lives of everyone else you suffers from chronic illness. Hopefully it puts things into perspective.
My final night of freedom was fantastic. My friends were in town so we relaxed by the pool and then went to a bar to watch the kings game. They finally got to meet my favorite smartass who then took me to see Fast and Furious 6.
Tomorrow starts pre-op and it’ll be downhill from there.
Except for the fact that I have someone who will be with me through the whole thing.
I’m dreading this next week, but I honestly couldn’t be more happy with life right now.
