    I have to say the one thing I find since having surgery is how emotionally taxing it can be. Iím finding my old demons wanting to come out and try to rip me up.

I blended some chili really well last night and I swear it was the best thing ever lol. Did anybody else ever feel like they were ready for the next phase a bit ahead of time?
