Hi,

Would anyone please paraphrase the following italicized part for me or clarify it, so it would be easy to understand?

"This time though, after the operation I knew right away it would be OK."

Thank you in advance,

Iman

Dear Optilang,

How about the following one? would you please paraphrase and clarify it as well?

"The kind of things that get me down are part political and part physical. I suppose like a lot of old, or older, people, I think the world has gone to pot."

Thank you in advance,

Iman
'Probably/quite possibly/I imagine that like a lot of old, or older people, I think the world has gone to pot'
