Sometimes You Have to Be Your Own Hero

Sometimes You Have to Be Your Own Hero.....

This is one of my favorite sayings.  In life there is not always someone that can do things for you.

Adjustments after major changes in your life is mainly done by you.  You may even go through the 5 stages of grief over these changes.

For me the realization of all the changes that have now happened to me happened month after the surgery.  At first I was just elated that I would no longer have migraines 5 out of 7 days a week.  Nor would I feel the need to touch the walls to reassure myself that I am not falling over or get overwhelmed while driving on a busy road.

To me the surgery was a small sacrifice to make to get all that back.

But like all things in life, there were strings attached to this fix and even the threat of another surgery loomed if I was a bad girl.
