I’m a bit more than three weeks out from V-Day (December 10), so thought I would share some updates. The healing is no longer so day-by-day dramatic, but that’s probably a good thing. By “day-by-day dramatic” I mean that, initially, I could see substantial changes every day: it was easier to get out of bed, easier to sleep, easier to bathe, etc. Now, I’m in what is sure to be a long, slow recovery; a recovery where I can definitely see changes over time, but there’s not such a big shift every single day.
I’m back at my apartment in Lincoln Square, which is lovely. Staying with my mom was absolutely the right thing do to, and she took awesome care of me, but it’s good to be back in my own bed and in my own space.
My time is mostly filled with Netflix, downloaded shows, video games, and reading. I’m almost halfway through Friends, just restarted watching Breaking Bad (which I never finished, so don’t ruin it for me!), just finished playing The Last of Us on PS3 (which is AMAZING!), and am rereading Lord of the Rings for the first time since college. All good ways to occupy my time, particularly when the weather is so miserable and my stamina is so low.
