I am not sleeping! (Although, chances are good I will be once I am done writing this.)
I’m still sleeping quite a lot but not the 20-hours a day I was clocking over the weekend. It feels like my body is not adjusting to the meds but that is just not true. I am adjusting in very small, nearly unmeasurable, increments. For example yesterday I did a load of laundry, I would not have considered doing a load last weekend. Things are getting better very very very slowly.
I’m still not eating a variety of food. The food I am eating is with the help of my numbing mouth wash and vicodin. I forgot how much chemo kicks “your body’s ability to fight anything” out. The best way for people to understand this is a bruise normally heals in 3 days BUT on chemo make it 10.
I’ve been eating the limited food since October 8th…I so badly want this to pass. I am going to enjoy Turkey dinner on Thanksgiving no matter how many drugs it takes me to eat!! (OK, I say that now but I don’t really mean it. The drugs numb the pain but I still feel pain.)
