Recently, I’ve started getting anxious about aspects of the surgery and overwhelmed with trying to prepare for the mastectomy, finishing all my schoolwork early, working 12-hour rotations, and trying to get everything in order. Even with my super supportive husband, friends, and family – it is a lot to handle. I’m going to start listening to my mindfulness CDs soon and my surgeon said I could even listen to them on my way into the operating room. Luckily, this is my last week of two days in a row 12-hour shifts, so I can have some more free time to get things in order and chillax. Meanwhile, I’ll just watch this video of some Bichons in Indonesia to calm me down.
