Waking up earlier than the alarm clock is the norm. Today it was pills, chat with friends, breakfast and then back into bed for an hour or two. I feel good but I am tired, my eyes are tired, and I get out of breath quicker than before. This is going to be frustrating but it will be something that I will have to get used to.
It really isn't that strange that I am tired if I think about how many drugs are in my body fighting this cancer. They are working hard and of course they are taking my energy. KEEP FIGHTING.
I haven't lost my appetite so much, which is good and bad. Good that I can eat and fill up on my nutrients. Bad because I had hoped that I would lose my appetite and lose some weight at the same time without having to go on a diet. (That was supposed to be the upside to this ordeal.)
Spent the early part of the day either eating, resting on the couch, snoozing on the couch, annoying the kids with questions of homework, or eating. Not my usual ambition level but it will have to be my current ambition level.
Then we got invited over to the neighbors, Linda and Bosse for some coffee and cake. It was good to get out of the house and spend some time with them. Many laughs.................Thanks Linda and Bosse.
Then my youngest and I took a walk with the dog. It was good to get out but the pace was slower than usual. FRUSTRATION.
I realize that this feeling of fatigue is an adjustment but now I need to find a new routine to make it work for me. Good to learn how to be lazy. This will be a challenge but I never shy away from challenges.
TIRED. FATIGUE. FIGHTER. KICK CANCER'S ASS. LOVED. GRATEFUL. FRIENDS.
