Yesterday I said ” the only side effect is a metallic taste in my mouth”. I was hasty, today the side effects kicked in.
Nausea, desperatley tired, loss of appetite ( and looking at what I just wrote, loss of ability to spell – and I don’t care).
Still I managed to eat something, and I had my tablets. If this is just for a few days, like last cycle, then I can take it. I met people in the Christie whose reaction was so bad they ended up in hospital as emergency admissions, now that is bad.
Had a message from my son the Engineer. His wife, the Secret Redhead, confirms she can and will shear away my crowning glory of hair (such as is left) on Tuesday. I will be a baldy until I can collect my wig on Friday.
Meanwhile I was asked if I was losing hair everywhere.
“Well you are my wife,” I replied, “if you don’t know the answer to that then I don’t know who does.”
Still I managed one thing today. I’d promised to write a story about dinosaurs for my grandson, the Dinosaur Kid. And today I finished the first draft, and handed it to his dad for comment. Job done.
And now I am retiring to my bed!
