What I learned....
Let me start by saying....sadly I made some dumb choices this last chemo round....okay...they didn't seem dumb at the time but proved to be after the fact. Luckily...I am a quick study so I will not be repeating them.
Lesson #1 - Pay attention to the clock!!!!
Don't let yourself get distracted and forget to EAT, DRINK, SLEEP or take those all important anti-puke pills on time!!!
Lesson #2 - Car ride.....not your friend!!!
Not ever suffered from motion sickness....never crossed my mind that 2 days after chemo would maybe not be the wisest moved...especially in the dark....and in combination with Lesson #1.
Lesson #3 - Never under-estimate the crippling power of total exhaustion!!!
I have never experienced this level of bone weary pooped!!! When you have to work yourself up to walking the 8 steps into the kitchen to get a drink....and that is WAY beyond your reach and feels more like a 10K marathon....it's bad....not to mention the energy it takes to have the ability to put any thoughts together....WHO KNEW!?!?!?
....Thankfully I have a bed in my living room!!!
Smartest move so far!!
