Just So Ya Know

Okay, folks. I have to take a break from the self photo project to tell you that I'm okay. I'm not suicidal or anything. I just had a long lost uncle call me (I don't think I've heard from him since I was a baby) because he occasionally reads this and was concerned by my last post. I'm fine. Really.

Sure, there are still fears about getting my throat cut open (I've never had surgery before so this is an expected reaction, right?) and concerns over what another very visible scar will do to my self esteem, but I'm not freaking out, self medicating, or anything crazy. No, my reactions have been really benign (ha ha), mostly internal with the occasional meltdown on the phone with my mom or friend or crying on Huz's shoulder once or twice (okay, maybe more like three or four times). I'm still successfully working at my full-time job, going out to lunch with friends, and am even throwing myself a Thyroid Bon Voyage party tonight with 6 of my closest girlfriends. So, I'm fine. I am just using photography as a creative expression of all that I've felt over the past month - all of which are normal, justifiable feelings and emotions. The second set of photos is supposed to be disturbing - it's supposed to evoke the emotions that I've been going through and it's supposed to make you respond in kind.

Oh, and to the reader who told me to get of my "pitty potty"? Bite me.
