I had surgery yesterday to correct a deviated septum. To widen out my passageways in my nasal spaces. Right now I can't breathe cause I'm all plugged up from the swelling. I didn't sleep last night at all cause I couldn't breathe. My adrenals are exhausted and driving me nuts emotionally. I don't want to feel my heartbeat in my neck. So that stirs me up inside..which stirs up my body into more fight/flight.. Plus my nose keeps draining and I breathe through my mouth which keeps drying out like crazy. I got 3-5 days of this as my nose heals. I did this to improve my sleep. Right now I wish I had not done the surgery. I'm just too sensitive for stimuli of any kind. How many of you have similar reactions to medical procedures? I bet a lot of you react like me. 1 day healing down...2-4 to go. Luckily I don't have much pain. But then I can deal with pain... Not lack for sleep or breathing through my nose. Plus I feel sick to my stomach...which doesn't help me one bit. ughhhh. Being human is hard!!!
