After a few days of sleeping, I seem to be coming out of it a bit. But as predicted, round six was (is) a doozie. I know I’ve complained about this before but the mind-numbing boredom during the days immediately following chemo is the most depressing part. Not the hardest part – the actual feeling sick part takes the cake there – but just depressing. It’s so boring being bored!
This morning I woke up a bit early and was laying in bed thinking that I was feeling better. I decided to get up and try to do a teeny semblance of my normal morning routine – I’m really feeling the effects of not doing at least some basic stretching. So I hopped out of bed, brushed my teeth … and then went right back to bed. So much for that.
After some more napping I was actually able to get up and putter around today. I’m being good and taking things really easy, but I simply can’t do nothing. I just was not cut out for that.
This is a rambling post with no real point other than to say: Hello, I’m bored, this sucks, but I’m glad it’s almost over (or at least moving to the next phase).
