These 2 pics tell my story of late - of my ups & downs, good & bad days during this 2nd round of chemo.
I didn't feel well today & felt worse tonight. I didn't expect to feel this awful today. Quite disappointing. 😢
Kinda makes me laugh when I look at the 1st photo. I look pissed off hahaha 😂😜 but actually I was really tired last week at chemo. It was the most tired I've felt at chemo this round. Crazy because the prior week I had felt great & was smiling & happy. That's what's tough about it besides the side effects, it's the constant roller coaster of feelings & side effects that gets you crazy sometimes. 🙈
Finally my stomach and nausea has settled down tonight, but I'm still awake & having insomnia again.
Hopefully tomorrow is a better day & I can get outside for a walk. My goal each bye week is to get outside as much as possible. I'm the hardest on myself I know, but I have high expectations for myself. 💪🏼
I had one good thing happen today, I was able to schedule my consultation next week with my plastic surgeon for reconstruction process woohoo! I'm excited to meet her as she comes highly recommended by my regular surgeon. Even though I have to wait 4 weeks post chemo to have stage 1 of the surgery (expander), at least it feels like I'm moving forward, like I have my next game plan. That puts me more at ease & less anxious. This is all new to me, so I get overwhelmed. 🙈
I'm grateful for each day I feel okay. I'm thankful to those who show me support & love. I'm still finding out who is meant to be in my life or.isn't. I'm still very much in my journey & will see where it goes. #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #carporn #teamkarnage #strongwoman #formuladrift #mylife #journey #formulad #feelings #chemo #honesty #chemosucks #cancersucks #instadaily #fuckcancer #fighter #drifting #drift #truth #myjourney #stronger #grateful #tnbc #cancer
