Day after second dose of Methotrexate. Again horrible fatigue, that I am just starting to almost see the end of. Only other thing of note is the horrible metallic taste in my mouth. Which definitely is better than nausea. The only thing particularly annoying about the metal taste, is that combined with my usual dry mouth, I pretty much want to be drinking water constantly. But whatever. Could be worse.
While I was in bed this morning (because I couldn’t be anywhere else), I started How to Be Sick by Toni Bernhard (which I heard about on Butyoudontlooksick.com). So far I really like it. I’m not particularly spiritual, so some of the Buddhism stuff is not my cup of tea, but at the same time, alot of what she says really resonates. And so, far, all of her suggested practices can be easily used by anyone, regardless of their spiritual beliefs. I’ll post an actual review when I finish it.
In other news (that is, for once, not at all about my being sick), my oldest kid is going to prom this weekend. CRAZY! His school is small, so prom is open to all grades, which makes it slightly less odd to have a child old enough to go to prom. It’s more like a super fancy dance, with us dropping them off and picking them up, etc. But still. I’ll be watching him dress up in a tux on Saturday and trying not to cry!
And that’s all I’ve got for today. Hands hurt too much to attempt anything profound. Very glad, though, to have gotten through dose 2 without any serious badness.
Wishing you all a great end to your week!
