Ugh.

It's been 6 days since my D&C and it's still incredibly tender down there. Going to the bathroom hurts plenty and I'm not sure if that's an infection that needs to be taken care of or just part of the body that needs to heal.

I stupidly went to work the day after my surgery because I had a huge event that I'd been planning for months that day. Everything went well and I got lots of compliments on the party and my boss's boss loved it so that's good. I was so sore the day after that I had to stay home to put an ice bag on my crotch and a heating pad on my back. Stupid, stupid, stupid. But, I got paid for 3 days instead of 2 so yay!

I'm mostly having a hard time healing emotionally. I don't have many friends in the area, my closest ones are in Chicago (2 hour drive) and Minneapolis (5 hour drive). It feels really lonely here. I'm so ready for all of this to pass. I want to go out running again before it gets too cold and I just feel so crappy everywhere.
