Made It Through

I am a mess…

Kris is typing this for me to keep up my streak. She has written an update. Thanks for all the support.

    Glad you made it through in your usual style!
    We had a fun comping mechanism during my recoveries: my family gave me a little jar of shiny arcade tokens. We called them the “bitch chits.” If I felt like snapping was inordinately grumpy or had a hard time asking for help, I used a bitch chit as a “get out of jail free card.” This made the occasional bad mood into a joke, and it made it easier for me to ask for help. YMMV – I hated handing them over! However, they helped me avoid the “oopses” that set patients in recovery back because they do more than they should.
    I hope you heal as fast and as well as I did!

    Dean, may your recovery go well and be a speedy one (sorry if speed’s the last thing on your mind right now.)

    Where is the update from Kris?
    I still cannot locate her contact email on her site.

    You will make it through. Use all your energy to recover.
