3 weeks down, 9 more to go

i have to completely ignore the fact that the first doctor said i would only be in the brace for six weeks (making me half done) rather than the current doctor who thinks twelve weeks (making me a quarter done).

for the most part, i am not in pain; that is the magic of the brace, it brings pain down a notch to just uncomfy. but i can't begin to tell you how uncomfortable i am. all the time. and based on how much i do hurt when i wake up in the morning, i assume i am uncomfortable all night long while i'm asleep. i would have to say that i'm uncomfortable about twenty three hours and thirty five minutes every day. and its somewhat disheartening because as long as i am wearing the brace (which will likely be another nine weeks) i am going to be uncomfortable.

but its like how when you haven't had something or done something in so long, when you finally do, it seems so much better than ever before. like dieters who finally splurge and eat that piece of chocolate cake. it tastes better than every other thing in the world because its been so long since they've eaten chocolate cake. so that moment when magically all the pillows are just right and when i finally get so cozy and relaxed, i am in heaven. i feel like i am more comfy than i have ever been in my entire life before. that moment is pure bliss.

"God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort." 2 Corinthians 1:3
