2012 has been a bit of a challenge for myself so far. On Feb 2nd I had open heart surgery. In the beginning I felt pretty good. As the experience dragged on I began to feel some of the same things I did when I was first told I have MS. “Why me?” was the biggest one. I then went through about a month of feeling really down. I guess I was letting the “what ifs” really get in the way of my healing. What if I can’t play drums this summer with my band was my biggest fear. I ended up using that fear to get me up and out of bed faster then normal. About 8 weeks after surgery, I was “lightly” playing the drums. About 3 months after surgery, I was killing the drums.
Don’t let fear get in the way of anything.
