Long Overdue

I'm finally starting to come back into my own body.

I left Ravenna in the care of my housemates after I put her to bed tonight, then threw on some clothes that only just recently have started to fit well again, brushed out my hair, and went out dancing for a few hours.

It felt SO good.

So, amazingly good.

I'm still floating on air!

There must have been 8-10 people who came up to me tonight and commented on my appearance or my demeanor, who said that they hadn't recognized me from behind. Several of these people were folk who have only met me since my pregnancy, so they never knew me before I went through that great transformation.

I have missed my body.

I have missed dancing, really dancing, without worry, with some level of control over my trunk and limbs.

I've still got a ways to go before I'm completely back, but I'm on the road now, and it feels great.
