The time is finally here. It seems like I'd never see this day coming but in 5 days I will be having my take down surgery. I have been reading so much from everyone else's successes on this forum and it is really giving me great hope. Advice and recommendations are all over the place but if anyone has anything that they NEED me to know in order to brace myself for this surgery, I wanna hear it!
Also, I started dating someone recently and I assure you that this truly is not something I had been trying to do. In fact, I have been sort of keeping myself distant and surfaced from any social life these last 9-10 months what with me going through all of these surgeries and health issues. I did not have the energy to give to anyone else let alone provide energy for myself! But, this seemed to have just fallen into my lap. And he knows all about what I am going through, and it doesn't seem to bother him, which is outstandingly exciting for me! I am very worried though how our relationship will be once I am recovering from this final surgery... I'm expecting to be wearing diapers and running to bathrooms and being super self conscious all over again for awhile, which sucks. But it will pass right?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
I can't thank everyone enough for being so supportive on this forum, it has helped immensely.
