    Wondering what else I can tell my wife to relax her before she has her 1st real surgery next week.

    My wife has a 12 cm ovarian cyst, which according to average ovarian cyst standards, is f-ing huge- and it's wrapped around the ovary- so they're probably going to remove both the cyst and the ovary. She's scared.
    They're basically gonna have to cut her from hip to hip, across her lower stomach, and I'll admit: That's a pretty sizable incision. She has every right to be scared.

    However, I've been injured and operated on a number of times:
    1) Open Heart surgery at age 7
    2) Cut my foot open on a piece of rusty metal and got stitches at 12
    3) Gallbladder removal surgery at 18 (gallstones)
    4) Calcium deposit/calcium cyst removed from my collar bone at 23
    5) I've had infected hair follicles cut out multiple times.
    6) I got stitches and staples in my head at 30

    So I know what it's like to be on the receiving end of a blade- but it's just one of those things you gotta do, ya know? That's life.
    But I'm so used to it at this point that it doesn't really bother me- because in my opinion: Being the patient of a surgical procedure is one of the easiest jobs in the world. You just sit there- and that's what I told my wife.
    You just sit there, let them shove crap in your arm, count back from 100, and fade to black....it's that simple- that's all you have to do. Easy.

    "I'm more worried about the recovery period."- And honey, you would be right to be more worried about that- because again: As the patient of a surgical procedure, your recovery IS the worst part.

    Recovery after a considerably invasive surgery tests you on 2 things: Mental Power & Pain tolerance.
    You're going to be in ALOT of pain- but that's why they'll give you morphine and pain killers- that'll cover most of it.
    But there's no such thing as a painless recovery- you WILL have periods where it hurts to move an inch, it hurts to sit up, it hurts to turn your body- everything just hurts- and THAT'S the test: It's mind over matter.
    You have to just PUSH past the pain, and whatever the doctors tell you to do: You do it. No matter how much it hurts- you just have to push and work through it. It's 95% mental.

    There's very few times in life similar to recovering from a major surgery- very few times like it- and that's why I'm telling you: During those times, your mind is your greatest tool- NOT your body.
    When you're in that hospital bed, and your stomach hurts, and you can barely move: (Taps her temple) THIS is what's going to help you start moving again. THIS is what's going to help you sit up, and eventually start walking again.
    It's like being a wounded soldier behind enemy lines: You can't afford to sit there and die- you have to move. USE YOUR MIND, PUSH PAST THE PAIN, AND GET THE MISSION DONE.

    THAT'S what your mentality has to be like during recovery- you're not just a hospital patient, you're a soldier, and your mission is to get back on your feet, and back to work- no excuses.
    When you're sleeping- You're a patient.
    When you're awake- You're a soldier with a mission. No excuses. Fuck the pain.

    Approach it that way- and you WILL recover faster.

    For the money... Honestly though, I don't know. I do not question my childrenhood.

    The songs were catchy if not a bit dark. The store, the apartment and the junkyard songs.

    The fat guy with the glasses and cheery personality was creepy.

    Aw look at the little Chihuahua! It's cuteness is killing me!

    Looking over the current "Justin Bieber VS Tom Cruise UFC Fight" material- and 1 thing comes to mind: A person Justin Bieber's age, in today's world, can be worth 265 million dollars- and....I guess that just isn't enough for him to shut his mouth and be content with himself.

    He's worth 265 million dollars and he's STILL an attention-hungry bitch.
    Nothing screams immaturity and insecurity like doing and saying the crap he's done.
    He's just a younger Canadian version of Mel Gibson.

    Justin Bieber and Mel Gibson are walking examples that you can have enough money to last you several lifetimes, aaaaand you're still an attention-starved asshole. You're still an insecure, immature, self-obsessed douchebag.

    You know what I'd do if I had Justin Beiber's money?
    I'd buy an island and piss off for the rest of my life.
    Everything I love: Just have it installed right there on the island.
    I'd never need to leave- except for professional sports events and stuff like that- just fly in for the night and fly back to the island the next day- easy peezy.

    I just can't believe he's worth 265 million, and that's how he behaves....it's just ridiculous. He's a freakin' idiot.

    Is he still popular?

    I heard he has anxiety and other supposed mental health problems but I do not pity him with the bullshit he has pulled off. He has no mental health issues, he is just doing it for attention. Which insults me and millions of other people who have real mental problems.


    To topic: currently still organizaing the 1000 Yu-Gi-Oh cards I bought a week ago. Labor of love. The brick had a Dark Magician which is excellent because I needed one for my fusion deck.

    I'm not sure how popular he still is, but my point is this: Somebody who has 265 million dollars shouldn't act like an attention-deprived little bitch- and that's clearly what he is- he's pathetic.

    He's just a younger Canadian version of Mel Gibson.

    The "Mel Gibson Tapes" seriously hurt him back in 2012.
    I don't know if you know what those are- basically at the time he and his Russian GF were arguing over the phone a lot, so she recorded the calls and released them to the media.
    He was constantly drunk, yelling, cursing, making death threats at her- he was exposed for being the drunk rage-addicted lunatic he really is- and I'll personally never forget those calls. They were astounding.

    But I see Justin Bieber on the same path as Gibson- he's on the way to doing something stupid, getting caught, and being exposed as a crazy asshole- just like Gibson.

    That's why, if I had 265 million dollars, I'd just buy an island, install whatever I love on it, and f--- off for the rest of my life.

    You wanna hang or see me = you know where to find me. I have my own little society on my own little island, and I'm perfectly fine right here.
    That would be my attitude.

    I'd just keep to myself and prosper in my little personal paradise- and stay out of the public eye/stay out of trouble.
    Simple solution for staying out of trouble and living peacefully.

    That's what people like Bieber and Gibson should do.

    Experiencing a painful foot cramp...

    ...and I'm doing nothing to stop it...

    ...it keeps reminding me that I'm still alive. Which is a good thing.

    I've had many nightmares where I'm dead but my body still functions.
