The Chemo Diaries: Part 1.2

"Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning." - Gloria Steinem

24th August 2017: Days past chemo -----> 2

Woke up feeling physically good, mentally not so strong today...I just want to be normal again and worrying about mundane things. The thought of having to do this a minimum of 5 more times is daunting - I don't want anymore cannulas, chemo side-effects or change. I don't want to be the dick in the GP queue handing in a letter about my post chemo body; I want to be the girl in front telling the receptionist that she just got married and is 5 weeks pregnant (I don't even want more kids - I just got jealous and don't want this life for my family).

Pity party over...symptom wise the tummy ache I felt this morning faded by lunchtime and its just mostly an anxious day. Nausea is better this evening - which could be down to some anti-sickness bands I got sent from a friend at work.
