Between surgery, boyfriend changes, global apocalypse, computer issues and general feelings of being overwhelmed, I haven’t been on here for a while. Luckily my job is considered essential so I am still employed and report to work 5x a week. My heart goes out to all those that have lost their jobs and/or their income. This is an unprecedented experience for most of us and we are at the mercy of a virus and panic. Who knew that it would be so difficult to purchase paper goods like paper towels and toilet paper? I understand the demand for Clorox wipes and hand sanitizer but toilet paper? Whatever. I found that I have gone to Walmart in the mornings before work and there are a few packages of the expensive stuff so I purchase it so that my friends don’t run out. It’s the least I can do.
I am currently dating a man named Mark who thinks very deeply about everything. I truly think his brain doesn’t shut off therefore he is quite talkative, too. I have experienced quiet times with him and they’re beautiful. Cuddling on the couch, during sex, on car rides. He’s a smoker (including medical marijuana) but I don’t mind it. I grew up with a dad who smoked inside quite heavily and surprisingly I never picked up the habit myself. We’re barely in our second month of dating so time will tell where this goes.
I have been doing well since my surgery; the healing process was a breeze. The only thing I struggle with is food (and sometimes drinks) getting stuck. I didn’t have this problem before so I am unsure if it’s the gastric sleeve, hiatal hernia repair or I’m taking too big of bites/swallows. I plan to go in a have an EGD done again to determine if the hernia repair was done and healed correctly. I should be on all foods right now but I have a hard time eating anything dry, like triscuits and cake (but not together lol). Those are carbs anyway so I shouldn’t be eating them but you know there are times when you are craving certain foods or flavors.
Have a great day everyone. I pray that the apocalypse ends soon.
