I am driving myself to LA today for my follow-up appointment with my surgeon. It is a huge step and I am simultaneously feeling nervous and confident. I have had bursts of energy and clarity this week and then hit a point of exhaustion and near panic in which lying horizontal on my couch feels like the only remedy. I feel ready though to push myself a bit further. Making the trip on my own feels like a milestone of sorts. I can do this.
