I’ve struggled this week, mornings in particular. Sore throat, low grade fever, stuffy nose, runny nose, stomach issues…it’s almost over.
This is the beginning of hell week for me, and it’ll last about another week. Then I have one more cycle of chemo and it’s all over.
There will be other issues then, I’m sure. Surgery, recovery, etc.
I feel like those problems will be nothing though, compared to all this chemo sick.
I got satin sheets. My chemo nurse this week suggested trying them for the hot flashes since they tend to be cooler than cotton sheets. I’m laying on top of them, having a hot flash, so we’ll see about that.
Something funny I remembered about chemo day this week…I sat next to a nice lady who also has breast cancer, hers is triple negative. We claimed the space between us as a neutral zone. Anyway, moments after we introduced ourselves, like less than two minutes, I forgot her name, and she was calling me Amy.
It was kind of a relief to actually experience a fellow chemo brain.
