Unexpected Bumps and Turns

It has been a while since my last blog post. To be honest, I haven't been writing all that much, and I'm still trying to recover from major surgery, this one not related to my feet or limbs, though there might be one more coming up to correct an issue many people told me was in my head. An x-ray showed otherwise. I'm somewhat uncomfortable. The surgery went well, but, as expected, healing is filled with a lot of ups and downs. I've had a few very hard days, but I've managed to get back to work and have done some light exercise in addition to my normal daily activities. Mostly, I'm feeling on the worn out side.

I thought it would be good for me to try to be more social. Unfortunately, going through this has only made me want to isolate more. It's really difficult for me to be out in the world right now. For the most part, I go to work and don't have a ton of interaction with others outside of that. I've made some exceptions by going to watch a few track and road races, mostly to support a friend, but otherwise, I'm keeping to myself more and more. The doctor said to expect some depression, so I'm doing what I can to weather it, only I'm not all that sure what steps to take other than a "fake it 'til you make it" approach.

Probably the best thing going on in my life lately is miso-mayo. I got addicted after my coworker and I ordered origini from a little cafe nearby. The miso-mayo one was the best, though all of the ones we tired were good. Still, I started making my own at home, and now I'm finding miso-mayo is good on a lot of foods.

Yeah, I know this is a lame post. I'm in a funk, and I don't have a lot going on in my life, except figuring out how to pay the enormous medical bills after the surgery. Holy shit those are outrageous.
