I still feel wretched, but i am truly grateful that it is only physically. I have been here on this road before, and by my standards, it is not even that wretched a place. This time, though, I have reliable people in my life and a roof over my head.
So i can wallow in how miserable i am or revel in the fact that i have a family and new friends out here. I can focus on the many moments of joy i have felt this year, traveling and seeing things i have never seen before. I am alive for a reason, so let's get to it. I am itching to start my new life, but my body is having none of it. It hurts to move my head, and that is a scary thing when you've had a stroke.
Ugh. I have a hangover, but i had none of the fun last night. It is okay. I am resting my body for a year filled with love, money, family, friends, and fun.
