On My Back with a Beard

Photo taken during one of the rare times when I’m able to sit down with my corset (which kinda looks like samurai armor, by the way). Doctor said yesterday that I need to be spending pretty much all my time on my back, and only put on the corset when absolutely necessary, and that for at least another few weeks. I definitely don’t want to fuck with the doctor’s orders — I can still have some seriously long-term problems if I’m not careful and the healing doesn’t take.

And yeah, so I have a beard now, for the first time in my life. That photo was taken on Monday or Tuesday, so it’s actually quite a bit longer now. I don’t think it’s something I’ll keep much passed this whole healing thing period, but for now it’s sorta funny.
