Thanks to my lj friends I'm feeling emotionally more ready to face life and its twists and turns. It is silly, but when they left me in pre-op all my my lonesome with 30 minutes of absolutely nothing to do but worry I started to replay farscape fanfiction in my mind. I'm partial to cathy1967's fic because it is so visual. I also replayed Crash's Whispers and Child of the Night. It passed the time and kept me from panicing. Now I know I'm addicted, but in a good way.

I was telling my daughter that when I was 17 I could name all 78 Classic Star Trek episodes and used to do that whenever I was bored. Now I go through all 88 Farscape episode titles, but have a more difficult time with them for some reason. I then switch to fan fiction in my head.

Thank you again to my friends. You made me feel much better--perspective is very important. Hugs to all.
