Sleeping last night was on again, off again through the night and the day. I exchanged messages with Jade about my pain. Today, the big difference for me was swimming. I’ve been resisting going, but it is the best activity for me. I swam tonight at around 8 PM. I was slow, but right now speed doesn’t count.

There is more than a little drama in my head, as I have written so often. But recovery, whether from surgery, injury, or alcoholism/addiction is about doing the next right thing, however trivial, consistently. Funny how it works. Baby steps.
