False Start

My Status: Tired and Congested
Mood: Disappointed
Yesterday was Chemo Eve, or so I thought. I went yesterday for my labs…

Chemo Eve

My Status: Tired
Mood: Content
That’s right, it’s Chemo Eve. Somehow, I will NOT be breaking out the champagne for this one.

Crankiness and Hope

My Status: Feeling Better
Mood: Irritated
I ain’t gonna lie—this week has been a rough one. Starting off with the touch of depression which was ripped apart by knee pain, which then morphed into overall body pain, followed up with an eye infection…

Heeeey, Blepharitis

My Status: Are you kidding me???
Mood: Cheerful
I couldn’t help but title the post this way… and if you don’t hear the Macarena playing in the background, then I don’t know what’s wrong.

What a Difference a Day Makes…

My Status: MUCH better
Mood: Ebullient
My title of the post today may be a bit cliché, but it is the truth. Or maybe more appropriately, what a difference a good night sleep makes.

Just Pain, Not Gain

My Status: In pain
Mood: Coming out of the dark
This post is a completely different one that I had planned for yesterday—a post I didn’t get to because of pain.

My Status: Feeling Good
Mood: Fabulous

A Shot and a Draw

My Status: Tired
Mood: Fair to Middlin’
Today started off with an appointment to have a shot in my eye. Yes, you read that right. …

Venturing Out

My Status: Feeling Relaxed
Mood: Amused
Today I actually ventured out of the house. Since having my treatments, I’ve pretty much been a hermit. Not intentionally…

An Evening of Rest

My Status: Feeling Good
Mood: Cranky
Yesterday I thought I’d try an evening of rest. I’m back to work, albeit from home, knew I wouldn’t be writing, didn’t really want to do anything, so rest seemed like a good idea. Here’s the thing—I don’t rest well.

A Bit of the Hair …

My Status: Feeling Good
Mood: Feeling accomplished – laundry done, beds made—who could ask for more?
For those of you coming along with me on this journey who do not have an understanding of how weird and twisted a writer’s brain can be, this post may sound weird and twisted.

Day of Rest

My Status: Rested
Mood: Good
Sleep has been accomplished. And not only the drugged variety, which was interrupted by several trips during the night to excrete the extra fluids I’ve been carrying around, but this afternoon I had a honest-to-goodness, natural sleep, nap.
