“Someday, perhaps, remembering even this will be a pleasure.” - Aeneas, The Aeneid.
It’s been an interesting and mostly difficult transition over the last month. Very few things were happening at the time table I had envisioned. However, I have been able to accept that I won’t be “returning” to my old life at any point. While it’s been hard to get accustomed to “the new normal,” I’ve felt more at ease lately. I still have balance issues, some vision issues, I don’t remember dreams, and some foods still don’t taste the same, but I’ve also realized it’s going to take time. I’m still healing. Even though I’ve made a lot of progress, there’s still plenty to go. I wanted to thank all of you for your help and support along the way. I truly appreciate it. It’s not an easy adjustment, but for the first time in a long time, I’m comfortable with that.
