Last Friday was my final intervenous chemo treatment. I’m not scheduled to start the injection phase until next week. That will be 11 months worth of shots taken on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week.
I’ve really been struggling to find any energy. Forturnately food is staying down but I have about zero appetite. Yesterday I had a banana for breakfast, a bagel for lunch and then about 1/2 a cup of rice for dinner (along with about 3 MnM’s from a friend in class). I don’t feel any nausea, thank goodness, just not hungry.
I really had higher hopes for this week. I had hoped the energy would come flooding back and its just not the case. The other issue right now is that the depression the doctors warned me about is starting to set in. Not only do I barely have the energy to check the mail, my thought patterns are all jacked up. I’m going to talk to Dr. Z. about everything on Tuesday. How messed up is it that the only thing making me smile right now is the fact that it’s raining and that means I probably won’t have to deal with Trick or Treaters? Well, that AND Numa Numa Guy… he always makes me laugh. (Go to youtube and search for Numa Numa Guy… he’s hilarious).
