Frustration

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

I had a lovely 4th with dear friends. Hopefully, I will be accepted into their Ren Guild. I miss belonging to a guild.

Spent all three days fighting a headache and increasing heart palpitations. I'm used to having palpitations, used to be a mostly pms occurrence. Since my hysterectomy, they have been increasing and it is kind of scary at times.

I had my six month follow-up with my surgeon. I actually saw my original oncologist which was so nice. She is in complete agreement with my hematology oncologist that I needed the four chemo treatments. She said that I made all the right decisions! I thought so, despite what the other surgeon said.(He thought the chemo was total overkill and not needed).

When I asked about my palpitations and lack of energy she said I need to see my PCP as I may be having problems with my thyroid (as far as the palpitations are concerned). The energy, she told me it will probably take a couple of more months to see any increase. Between the surgery and the chemo, it takes time.

I made an appointment to see my PCP and hopefully he can help. (Oh...*sighs* My oncologist said it is also time for my first colonoscopy. Ugh! *LOL*)

Oh well, onward and upward!

All Righty then...

Thursday, July 01, 2010

First of all, my thanks to all you wonder*full spark friends for your love and support. I have no idea where all the self pity came from, but it is gone! I didn't allow myself to indulge when I was sick and I will not indulge it now. Onward and upward...33 pounds to go and I can say I lost 100 pounds~

I am so looking forward to the weekend. I am spending the holiday with some dear friends who are faire family. I cannot wait to see them. They haven't seen me since I finished chemo...I'll be curious to see their faces when they see me with my uber short salt and pepper hair.

Time for Glee...have a great evening!

    Good for you! Some times slumps sneak up on us, and they can really try to pull us off track. You're doing fabulously! And yay for holidays and friends. :)

Conundrum

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

It’s been a long couple of weeks. One would think with all the weight I’ve lost I’d feel better. My knees hurt worse then they ever did at my heaviest. I get sore sitting for any length of time and when I get up I move as if I was 100. *sighs* I know it is a conundrum…I have no energy to exercise…but if I exercised I would have more energy and I wouldn’t hurt so much from sitting. After five months of enforced inactivity, I’m finding it difficult to get going. The desire is there...the will apprently, is not.

Other than that I am doing well. Just looking forward to the weekend, like everyone else.

    Hang in there! Just be paitent with yourself. And take a short walk, starting small could be the secret to getting back on track.

    Pick one thing you can do every day - something small and simple, that isn't going to be too taxing...and do it. :) Get a streak going on that one thing, and then pick a new goal and do *that* - small steps forward that you can accomplish will help you feel successful and motivate you to do more. :) That's my experience so far anyway.

    Try starting your day a little earlier and just do some stretches on the living room floor. For your knees, inch to the front most part of your chair so that your butt is bearly on it and do straight legg lifts.

You gotta push through it love! its the inactivity thats making you sore, you just gotta push past it into activity!

It is a beautiful day and life is so very good!
