I have reached Day 60 today and I nearly forgot this milestone as I, like Dave, had started to count weeks not days. But it is important to acknowledge and honour the milestones because they are moments of satisfaction in an otherwise rocky time. I have been feeling fine today despite stresses and strains at work and am hoping that there will be smoother sailing ahead.
Last week was horrible and I began to think that I would drown in grief and tears. However, I think I have turned a corner now and can look at it all more rationally. It makes sense that we feel emotional when our soother has been taken away. It is probably not much different to a baby relying on a dummy who eventually has to do without. And so I am looking on this experience as somehow being reborn as a grown-up without the dummy in my mouth. I don't know about everyone else but somehow rationalising this emotional journey helps me.
I am just going to keep on keeping on and will look forward to the day when the process does not even cross my mind. Good luck to everyone today and tomorrow and tomorrow.
