Hello to anyone and everyone :)
So today has just been a day of ups and downs. and i don't even think anything is really even that significant... but it just feels like everything is such a big deal :(
On the positive side, i feel like my swelling went down a tiny bit today... it may go back up again tomorrow, as that is what normally happens.. but i guess as long as it goes away eventually ill be okay.
But.. i do want to just rant for a brief moment about how i have been thoroughly annoyed with my puffy face throughout recovery.. i mean, i never really minded people seeing me, but the part that is kinda annoying is that i have pictures of me taken with other people where my face is blatantly puffy. like, my cousins were in town a couple weeks ago, and there are lots of pictures with me and all them and other family, and now just in my mind all i see in those photos is "katie's puffy face". same with pictures i have with my friends. it could be worse.. but im just annoyed. okay. end rant.
but the swelling appears to be nearly gone today, so ill be done complaining about that!
While I'm ranting about things that bother me... might as well add my nose to the list, and by nose, i mean how the middle part is pushed to one side now (i believe this is a deviated septum)... i can never ever breathe out of the left side of my nose now :( i mean sometimes.... but if i am the tiniest bit stuff due to allergies.. then that side of my nose is screwed. makes being outside and golfing really fun... plus it just itches uncontrollably. why? i don't know. besides allergies. but idk... also, i have pain on the inside of my nose sometimes, and i don't know why, and i don't know how to stop it. plus... i can't stop sneezing. i feel like i sneeze every 15 minutes. and it kinda hurts both my jaw and nose when that happens.. yay....
goodluck to all of you guys in recovery :)
