I am now focused on healing myself after the operation this week and this is involving rest and good food and listening to my body.
Over the last few years I have discovered how much food can be medicine as well as poison for my body. From being a sugar addict who didn't like cooking, I have discovered I now love making new dishes and trying new foods. My latest passion is avocado and this is great in salads or a raw chocolate cake.
After my body has been through the stress and trauma of an operation, I have made sure I have eaten good fats this week. What has been hard is getting good sleep as I was given steroids before the operation and these stopped me sleeping - I felt quite wired and restless.
My biggest feeling this week is a feeling of love. The hospital staff were lovely and also happy to talk english to me. I woke up to messages from friends and family and had my navy guy waiting for me to take me home. Being looked after this week has shown me how much I am loved and I have allowed myself to enjoy this feeling, like a big pile of squashy comfy cushions underneath me.
I feel relief and happiness that I am now on the road to healing and also a strong belief that I know what my body needs in order to do this. That is a very strong powerful feeling.
