GRS in Montreal February 22
« on: January 27, 2021, 10:18:11 pm »
Third time is a charm they say well I hope so because I got another date for GRS February 22 2021 after the last 2 other dates were canceled because of covid. Which is almost a year since my original date. Having my GRS canceled has been so hard on me I dont think I could take it if this one is canceled again. Is there anyone else scheduled for grs in montreal at that time just curious if I could meet anyone there.

Dear Natalie:
I feel so bad for you that you have had to endure previous cancellations for your desired surgery.   
It certainly has to be a big let-down for you and certainly very frustrating.

The Covid issues have screwed up so many members surgery plans here on the Forums.

I will mark February 22nd on my calendar and I will be trusting and hoping that it will not get
cancelled again.

Please, as you feel so inclined, keep me and the rest of your followers updated.
I will be eagerly looking for your future postings....


HUGS and best wishes to you,
Danielle

Dear Natalie:
Be strong and get this done so that you can continue on in your journey.... the surgery is one of the big steps in your transition.
Rest assured that it is absolutely "normal" to be "...scared nervous and happy sad so many emotions I am by myself here."
It is a travesty that in this day and age of Covid it is a shame that you and others facing hospital medical procedures have to be isolated from loved ones and friends during that stressful time....  please know that you have many members here that are supporting you and that are wishing your much success and happiness.

HUGS and best wishes to you.

Thank you :)

I do realize it is normal it is just I never feel this way it is insane for me to feel like this I have never felt this before. I am known to be the person that can hold every ones problems at work and fix them I figure ways to around  or negotiate  things to get people what they want and need. I have worked so much I am kind of stuck with my brain feeling guilty for leaving my coworkers. I am feeling selfish for going for surgery knowing there is a pandemic. My coworker elected me as president of the union and health and safety rep and I feel like I am letting them down. I am also feeling guilty because the person I love is there and I am not I know I cant be with her but still hurts. I am thankful we have not had one case of covid at work but still does not mean we wont. I am scared for the pain I am usually good with pain but all my emotions are getting to me I know none of this probably makes any sense right now  or maybe sounds stupid I do take my job very seriously I figure people put me into that position twice for a reason and I don't want to disappoint them. I never realized how lonely I am either I mean I wish I had a partner that loved me and I loved them. I do have some one I love but yea that is another issues. sorry just kept typing as emotions and thoughts ran in my head while crying

Guilt is normal when going to have such a life changing surgery, but try and be kinder to yourself, this is something you are doing in order to be even a more complete person, and therefore once you reach that 100% self realization all those you are worrying about, will benefit from it, as well.

Natalie,

I am so glad that you were able to get this surgery!

You take care.

I wish you a smooth recovery!

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Hi Thanks  Danielle  :)

I have to recommend Dr. Brassard and his team at GRS Montreal they are the most caring and compassionate people I have seen and the food there was excellent it is real food not processed. Even though with the Covid 19 restrictions that leave you basically to be in your room almost the whole time you are there it was worth it for me. I was am so happy with the results so far. The staff there were impressed at my high pain tolerance because I did not need anything more than Tylenol for pain. I  was walking the next day and I did not want to stop it felt so nice to walk again even though there was so much packing inside of me. The only part that hurt me while I was there was when I sat on the toilet as the stitch the bottom of your bum cheeks together that's what hurt me. When I was done my 10 days in Montreal I drove my self home which was a 8 hour drive back to the Niagara Region in Ontario. I am doing very well the scares are healing nicely. It hurts a little to do the first dilation of the day but it is not too bad. I am down to dilating 3 times a day I cant wait till it is just once a day that is a hard schedule to keep up with. I have learn that baby wipes are our friends and I bring them where ever I go. I am going back to work soon may 1st but on modified work. I have been doing my health and safety work and union work from home and going in to work 3 times a week to get covid tested and pick up stuff to work on or deal with at work. I have a hard time doing nothing it is way to boring for me.  I have to say I am extremely lucky and thankful for everything I have and all the opportunities that I have had also I have learned so much about people struggles and what is going on in some of the   USA and it is sad and sickening that they take peoples rights away. I am very fortunate that I have the ability to be who I am.

Right out of surgery



My first day meals


I'm way overdue with this.



Hugs, Devlyn

Aww thank you  :)
