A new day.


Thursday, March 22, 2012

Things have been rough here for awhile. I have always been one to rise above any current issue and now is no different but I am starting to wonder if some good "luck" will find me soon?
It just has to!
My cancer meds have been increased so I feel nauseous all the time. My lungs have finally healed for the most part so that is GREAT but then I broke my foot. My anti-depressants had to be changed which I felt would be easy because I was in an excellent "head space" when we made the change but I crashed far faster and lower than I could have imagined.
I am improving now and I am trying VERY hard. I attempt to stay as positive as possible and look at the bright side. Lately it's just been such a struggle and I do not like it. 2 years of illness have taken their toll and I am tired.
I suppose that after 2 years of illness, I should be more patient with myself and getting better? It is happening, just slower than I would like.
I think that will be my goal for the next week. To be more patient with myself and look at the small improvements that I have been able to make rather than where I want to be. I'll get there! It just takes time... and patience.
Thank you all for all your support. You have NO IDEA how much it has meant to me.

    Sorry I missed this. I usually read all of the updates on my phone which makes it that much harder to respond to....unless I chop off my fingers and use toothpicks to tap the keys!

I hope you realize that we all love you and remember that tomorrow is another day!

    I'm sorry you're having such a rough time. Good times and luck will find you again, but I know it can be hard to wait for the rough patches to end. I'm new to the forum, but I hope to get to know you better and would like to offer my support in any way I can.

    Heather, it takes a while, so continue to be patient. I've been I'll, more on than off for 20 years and sometimes, I am so sick of it all but attitude really counts. You're fragile now, so be choosy for awhile when deciding what to do. You'll hav to work back up to what was normal before cancer and we usually don't get it back as fast as we lost it. Try journalling; it will help you see patterns in your fatigue, activity levels, eating choices, etc. with that information, you can make informed decisions. Most of all, listen to your body and give it time to heal!

    Hugs I can understand why you feel tired. After I had breast cancer it took time to get my energy back. Getting into a daily routine that included a bit of exercise helped me feel like I was making progress. Keep posting, we are here for you buddy!
