I faked it a lot during the day, you know? Of course, I’m frustrated when I’m dropping things, when I’m scraping things, you know, when I fall. Of course, I’m mad at that. The fact that, my clothes don’t fit the way they do. I mean, there’s a lot of frustration, anger along with all of that. But, I think for me, I didn’t want to show that in front of my kids. So, lot of anger and frustration with myself happened in solitude of my bed at light when no one was watching. And the nights were very, very long, you know, and I used to say things like, “Why is the sun coming up when I’m not ready to have another day?” But, regardless, it would come up, and I had to be ready anyways. So, I had lot of long, long, long restless nights. And I still have them from time to time. It’s definitely shorter lived, but to say that I’m all cleared, I’d totally be lying to you. I think it’s a lifelong process.
