It feels good to have had so long since my last chemo. My brain is finally starting to feel normal (I can hold a thought in my head for more than 2 seconds) and I’m finally starting to get my appetite back.
My sleeping is still kinda funky but as long as I get some sleep I’m not too picky. And the best of all! My hair is growing back! I mean you can tell some spots are still kinda thin and I have crazy cowlicks but it feels nice to have more hair on my head and not to wear a hat or scarf, because it is HOT here in Az.
It is a little harder for me to start getting active to build my strength back up. I have never liked physical activities so when I am tired it is even harder to make myself try and do something, but I have don’t some yoga and stretching, but I keep getting distracted by books…
I did get sick after I wrote my last post, a couple of days with an 100 degree fever, it wasn’t fun but it passed so I guess that says something about my immune system booting back up?
My grandma took me on a shopping spree to get more clothes that fit me and my new hair do… all of my clothes were too big :( but see my issue that frustrates me is that whenever I put makeup on (like mascara and such) my eyes freak out, they burn and sting and water. And I know I used to have a hard time with certain eye makeup but now it seems it is all eye makeup… and my ye lashes are still thin and weird. I guess I’m doing good though if this is my worst complaint.
I just wanted to let you know how I was doing and thank you guys again for helping to get me through this :)
OH! I also wanted to tell you guys that I submitted a letter of complaint to the medical board in MA against that creepy doctor who touched me inappropriately.
Also, my boyfriend is coming to visit me in 11 days… off topic, but I am so excited about it!
Great to see an update from you! Sounds like things are going very well, especially considering that you’re only a month out of treatment. I think things will just keep getting better as the days go on. Keep us posted on how you’re doing! Ann
Hope you continue to improve and regain your strength.
SO proud of you for filing that complaint! That takes guts, hun.
I’m happy to hear how well you’re doing. I have the same complaint about working out… it seems that no matter how much I work out now, I still pant like a dog in the end. We’ll get it eventually ;)
