I left my blog last night at the smallest I could do, I was shattered. What I missed out was how I felt, and it was not a good experience.
I’m back. And shattered. We got to The Christie at 0820 and left at 2150. On the way back my son the Engineer got fish and chips from a local chippie, and I ate a whole fish.
Now I feel better, but still shattered and very tired. But I’ll write as much as I can.
I spent most of today as a danger to children and pregnant women.
Perhaps I shoud clarify that statement,
We think we’ve found the cause of the migraines. We had a new gas fire installed Friday
Apparently they coat the insides of the fire with a light oil to protect them. This burns off during the first hours of use. It looks like this caused the migraines.
I read the Grauniad website today, about Victoria Wood. Apparently she, and lots of others , kept their cancer a secret.
Is this the right thing to do? I lost another day to migraine today, so I had a long time to think about it.
Afraid I lost a lot of today to another migraine.
I woke up with it at 5:30 and spent most of the morning in first a headache, then a drugged fog. No way I could drive safely.
I woke up this morning at 5:30 with a migraine. That maybe explains why I felt so bad yesterday. The standard medication (Immigran) fixed it by 10:00, and apart from feeling doped up I was almost normal (no comments at the back there)
And I’m getting edgy again. Yes it is irrational. But I can understand why people crack and do irrational things.
I’m finding eating difficult again. It took me three goes to finish my tea, and it was mince and veg, which I’d been eating well. So I had one of the vitamin and health drinks. Not sure if it helps or not.
Well I’ve got what I wanted, chemo starts 6 days from now. Now I feel slightly at a loose end again.
Finished a piece of work off and released it. Just a bit of documentation to write up now. I must get down to writing again. I’ve had two more ideas for stories
08:30 and we are waiting for our son to pick us up. I’ve spent days longing for this day, and now I find I’m scared stiff. It’s going to the dentist, but far worse.
