My sleep and my mind have really been off of late.  I've been thinking and thinking of the surgery.  I also get what if thoughts about all sorts of stuff when I'm anxious.  Even the ozone layer gets playtime in my brain. 
I'm a little wacko. 
I talked to the nurse practitioner I work with, Jill, who helped me real quick think through the thoughts about being barren after the surgery.  It's upsetting, but I knew before that this was what I needed to do, any wavering now is anxiety.  I have to take the Zanax as directed instead of just as needed, three times a day.  It keeps me from all those what-ifs (really, we're doomed!!!).  Jill really helped me by telling me about the chemestry of the horrible thoughts and how the drug stops them when you have a level in you. 
Three weeks from Tomorrow. 
Oh, BTW, I am appauled that he was acquitted.  I have just the right group for Michael.  Oh, if only I could get him in that room, mandated!!!!!

Ellen: I'm sorry that you are having such a rough time. I'm glad that you have meds that will help you get things under control again. I had a total hyster when I was 31. The obgyn let an infection get out of control (he said it was all in my head) after my 2nd dd birth, so mine wasn't an elective surgery. But I can tell you that I never felt better. I never once regreated having the surgery. I am a big believer that if you can accept a surgery w/ positive thoughts, then your healing will be much faster and have less problems.

Ellen, most of us know about the feelings you describe. And most of us are on antidepressants because of them. Things will get easier for you. Lord woman, you made it through your doctorate, you'll make it through this.

BTW, Michael got exactly what I said he would from the day they charged him. I also followed the trial as close as Court TV could provide. It is just unfortunate that the prosecution did not put their best foot forward. Funny how a case can be won or lost on one witness.

Love, Jo-Ann
