I think it’s good to remember that while you may be busy- you’re not REALLY busy. Like I’m inwardly freaking out about all of the things I should be doing to get ready for the upcoming week but I’m outwardly just reading people’s jaw surgery blogs. I’ve read probably 5 from beginning to end. Probably scanned a good 10. I read their reflections about each day post-op. It seems like day 60 or so is the day when people go “yeah, that was actually worth having mossy bloody teeth and a chipmunk face for a month. Oh my boyfriend is on his knee with an engagement ring. G2G.” And then the blog ends.
So while I am looking forward to the not having school aspect of summer, it’s going to be the summer of suck. Let it be known that I realize that there are people out there with actual problems. I just can’t help but fast forward and think…I’m going to be withering away inside- not chewing- not meeting anyone that will find me mildly attractive-oh and living with my parents. #angst.
Then there also comes up this interesting issue of gaining weight pre-surgery. So I get to end the school year and dive into summer a cool 10 pounds heavier. PERFECT! It’s one thing if you tell me I have free reign to gain some weight around December- I’m there. I’m always there. But I find nothing awesome about slamming protein shakes in June.
The good news I got from all of these blogs is that many people before me have done this, wrote about it, and not only lived but thrived. People looked GOOD after. Like, a different hotter version of themselves. So in a year from now I’ll be like wow here I am looking good- anyone want to watch Married at First sight with me? No? Okay I’ll just go chew something with my perfect teeth.
