Criptic entry that will make no sense to anyone, most of all myself.

I don't have the time or energy to write about this in great detail right now, but I've decided interdependence is much easier to accept in times of acute health challenges than in times of chronic stuff. It was much easier to accept that I am not perfect, and might need to rely on others to get things done right after my surgery than it is a month later. And when I had my first foot surgery, I didn't like relying on others, but it was easier to accept... Or am I just nostalgic and claiming I was good at accepting interdependence when I wasn't? My brain hurts...

Oh, and why am I always in a contest to prove something to myself? Okay, time to eat dinner and get to bed so I can get up really early and do more homework. At some point the brain fries, and mine did at about 3 PM.

Oh, and I'm becoming too opinionated for my own good... And none of this will make any sense in a month anyway...
