I know what you mean! I am just starting to feel like I am going back to my old self. Yesterday at dinner, I was actually joking around with my family for the first time in a long time. I immediately realized, and knew, that it was a personality that I hadn't had for a long time, but it was strangely familiar and felt good to have back. Did that make sense? Anyway, I think I am still far from being back to 100% normal, but just know that it does happen, and that you will have your life back soon. Good luck with the removal. Mine was absolutely painless. I have now had two spotty periods and feel like that is my bodies way to start to normalize it's natural balance. Good luck and come back frequently!
