To recover means to return to a normal state of health, mind or strength. It’s rehabilitating, recuperating and healing from something major that has occurred  in your life or body. Someone who has went through an intense surgery requires intense recovery.

When a person has knee surgery or a total knee replacement the pain after surgery is usually worse than it was before they went in, according to research. The knee is in shock and has been traumatized from the event; that is why there is alot of swelling, redness and fever in the traumatized area. Infection is another symptom that could occur after knee surgery due to exposure of the open wound. Many individuals will have to go through profound physical therapy and a thorough recovery process so that the knee can heal which will allow them to resume their normal daily activities.

When I read about the process a person goes through after having such a sugery, I thought about the healing and recovery process  I am going through as well. I’m made-aware of the trauma my heart, mind and spirit has endured after losing both of my parents in a matter of two years. They were two of the most important people in my life. This journey of grief has been extreme and the healing and recovery process has been even more. I am undergoing an intense therapy with God and it has not been easy. Just like the knee surgery patient who is learning to walk again, each step that I take towards recovery, each step that I take towards healing and letting go is painful. It hurts but I know that if I want to get better, I have to give it all that I got. I’m learning to let it all go. I realize that I will never be the same again so I am rediscovering this new person that I am becoming. I’m learning to live life without them by embracing my new beginning and adapting to my new reality one day at a time. grief

Hi everyone. I'm Nekitta Sutton. I've experienced major disappointments, setbacks and losses in life. During those times I had to hold on to my faith and find strength to continue on. Through the trials and sufferings I realized that I was more than a conqueror, I was a survivor. I began to gain knowledge and grow as a person by activating my faith and reading God's word. My hopes are to encourage the masses so that you will be able to regain control over your life and start living again as well. It takes a lot of work and can sometimes be painful but I do know that it's possible and well worth it.
