This was undoubtedly the result of two months without real food and exercise, added to the damage done by the severe burns. I realized from that first day that my number-one priority, for as long as it took, had to be my healing. I had to put me first. It felt like a strange and egocentric view and, I would like to believe, not my usual way of thinking, but the reality was stark and clear. If I did not recover, my life would be miserable and I would be of little use to anyone.
