I have not have been able to complete anything today that I need to get ready for my surgery. First I couldn't get the sound on my computer to ever be able to understand. Then I thought I would try to put together the surgery equipment by just video without knowing what was being said with no luck. My BF is coming over tomorrow night to help me put the equipment together but I'm not one to depend on anyone no matter how close they are to me. I am feeling anxious to get all this stuff done and worried that I won't. I hate the fact that my brothers and cousins are not the type to be helpful either even if they were in my life at the moment. I was thinking earlier today about trying to get in the good graces of one of my brothers but then later decided it best not to. Sometimes life with no one to depend on can get so very hard and today has been one of those times.

Hi Barbara, I think you are very nervous about your surgery and you are confused about what you want. On the one hand, you don't want your BF to help you and on the other hand you want your brothers to help you. I would like to gently suggest that you let anyone help you who will and say thank you to them with gratitude. We all need help sometimes. You have helped many people and now is maybe the time for them to repay you.

I wish you all the best with your surgery.

Rusty

Thank you Rusty, Kevin, and Mary.

My bf came over last night and put together the bed equipment. He's coming back over tonight. He's got a cold though so we can't get too close.

My bp was high today and I could not get it to come down. I walked about 1/2 mile to the local pub this afternoon so that may have helped my bp. I don't feel so bad now anyway and I have not check the bp after the walk but will later.
