Not Sleeping That Great

This week has been a bad week for me sleep wise.   Sunday night I didn't get much sleep for obvious reasons.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights I haven't been sleeping through the night or waking up REALLY early.  On the waking up really early front, at least that means I can cook myself an egg substitute & cheese omelet (like I just ate).  I think it it is combination of excitement and nervousness about my surgery that I will be having in just over a month.  So many questions are racing through my mind.  How much skin will be taken off?  How much weight will I lose during the procedure.  How screwed up am I going to look once it is all done?  For that last one, when the plastic surgeon says things like "We will try to save the belly button" and "It is possible you could lose your nipples" (which are pointless on a guy but a nippleless man, possibly without a belly button, would look pretty strange).  The reason for those last two caveats is just how much excess skin I have and where they need to cut it out from.  There are also the normal concerns about surgery, plus the excitement of getting some of my excess skin taken away.

So, hopefully this won't continue all the way until the 11th.  Otherwise it is going to be a looooong month.

If it makes you feel any better, I have no desire to see you naked under ANY circumstances! So, as long as your partner in that department is okay with the outcome, you don't need to worry about anyone else's reaction.

It would be interesting if they saved a nipple in a jar, though - you could keep it on your desk at work, and let the rumors start...
