My sanity

Today I have been more thankful for Si than I ever have before. 

Without him, I think I might go crazy. He has been my sanity and my joy lately. 

Why must some people be so cruel and harsh? What do they get out of it? I know that when I make someone feel bad, it makes me feel bad. So I try to stick to treating others how I would like to be treated. 

Apparently that isn't the case with other members of this extended family..

C-section scar problems

Today it got up to 84 degrees in my classroom and that was with the air conditioner on 60 degrees. Gotta love the heat of an Alabama spring...

I am beginning to have problems with my c-section scar because of how the wound healed. It is actually because of how the doctors put me back together and all of the problems I had immediately after Si was born. 

I have some options...

Deal with it. Continue to bandage my scar for the rest of my life and fight off infection as best as I can.


Have it surgically fixed. 

The issue with the surgery though, is that I will need to lose a good deal of weight before having the revision. Otherwise it would most likely do no good. They removed fatty tissue from below my incision and that is what is causing the problem now.

Like I've said before, this body is not my body. It's not the one I had before Si was born by a long shot.

My mother has told me that I am going to have to have the problem fixed. I don't think she understands what all that entails. 

So for now I will continue to bandage the area and diet.

What else can I do?
