The art of positive thinking

I started my period today. I know, I know, you didn't ask to hear the details of my menstrual cycle.

The thing is, I thought I would freak out and bawl uncontrollably when that happened this month. But I didn't. It was more of a "**Sigh** Well, shit." response. I'm not sure if that means I've given up hope or if it means I'm optimistic because I have 3 to 5 more months where the doctor said I still have a remote chance after the surgery. Either way, I was proud of me.

So, I decided today I need to think positively. Not just about that, but about everything. I've been in a bad funk lately and it just feeds itself with negativity. If I'm positive then maybe I'll get out of the funk.

So, I will say, I used to have horrible cramps with my period. But, this being the first period after the surgery, I'm virtually cramp free!!! I can't believe it! And if the surgery did nothing else, I've got to say I'm happy about that.
