Just got a call from the Surgery Coordinator of my plastic surgeon, and I now -- finally -- actually have a tentative date for my breast reduction: September 29, 2010.

It's amazing how things with dates attached to them are suddenly way more real. It's been so long since I started this process, what with changing doctors (and most importantly changing receptionists who advocated over the phone for me and actually got the first consult) and then the actual formal waiting list. Something like four years (the first two of those were largely unneccessary, mostly caused by poor administration), and now this thing actually has a date.

I'm shocked by how emotional this is making me. There may be a world post-September where some clothing fits me properly, where trying on dresses doesn't make me feel hopeless and freakishly shaped, where my back doesn't hurt every morning or every evening, and where jogging and other high-impact sports might actually be comfortable, realistic fitness options. This is like... wow. It's like magic.

I am thrilled, excited, joyfull, terrified, and shaking just a little. This touches so many pieces of me in so many ways: physical, emotional, psychological and sexual. I've been talking about this hypothetical for so long I've become somewhat blasé about it, and now it's all fresh and real again.
