REMOVING DRESSINGS 2 WEEKS AFTER DOUBLE MASTECTOMY

video

I still have flu and bronchitis from eating yogurt with the post-surgery antibiotic as you can hear by me stumbling over my words in this video!

I have been desperate to remove the wound dressings that covered the micropore over my mastectomy scars - the right side was quite itchy where the drain hole was.

In the video I mentioned I have gained so much by loosing my breasts but don't clarify - here is what I have gained:
  • Appreciation for the present moment
  • Compassion for my human nature and body
  • Although I need my physical body in order for my spirit to be incarnated in this lifetime, it will pass at some point and that's OK
  • Lack of tolerance for extraneous people or situations
  • Ability to say 'No' very easily
  • Desire to do what I want to do and not what anyone else wants me to do
  • Realisation on my life's purpose
