I'm beginning to get a little nervous about my surgery next week.
I had one 11 years ago, but this time, everything seems different.
It's probably because I'm more mature (1st op at 23 years) and have more responsibilities. Last time the symptoms were far less debilitating and I was confused rather than afraid.
I find some days I am totally ready for what lies ahead and can't wait to look the monster in the eyes and beat this thing.
Other days, like today, I feel like a kid, small and plagued with worry and fear.
It's hard to talk to my wife about this stuff because she's pretty scared about everything and I don't like to burden her with this stuff.
I only found this site a month ago or so, but over the past week or so, this group has been a great comfort to me.
It feels to get this off my chest knowing that I am able to communicate with others who completely understand.
Thanks for the shoulder,
