One of the demon children of chemo is hitting me…fatigue. My brain wants to be active and busy and productive. My body is responding with a resounding NO. I know this is just a product of the poison in my body and knew it would come, but that doesn’t make it any less frustrating. The simplest of tasks is exhausting lately…getting dressed, lifting anything heavier than 10lbs, and today, just getting out of bed. I feel old!!
I know that nutrition would help me, but the foods I need are the foods that I mentally cannot fathom eating. I am going to try harder this week on that part. My labs on Tuesday were good as far as my nutritional values, but I am anemic now which my doctor said is just from the chemo and not something I can eat my way out of. So hopefully I can push through this. My plan is to work in my office tomorrow instead of at home. Pray I can make it through the whole day.
On a positive note, Christmas was great! I was able to enjoy all the family gatherings, and no one’s schedule or plans had to be adapted or adjusted to my cancer which was my Christmas wish. I hope you all had a great Christmas and are getting ready to ring in a happy new year!
