So, just spent a few days down with a cold/flu thing. That coupled with Zometa has been mentally challenging. Very. Constant temprature changes from Femara, & hotsweats, coupled with bone pain from Zometa, coupled with stiff muscles, well.....it is just getting too much. I go back to, it takes so much mental strength to get through cancer. The body can so easily overwhelm you. And for a year now I have been dealing with pain. I am trying to be patient and figure this all out, find a way to manage.
It sometimes feels like pushing back a glacier with one hand.
I just tell myself, on the worst day, it will pass, we will figure this out, and just keep going.
Anyway, I didn't complain through chemo, but right now, wew. Just a little tough spot. It will pass. I just remember right before Zometa, I felt great.
It is my mantra.
So no insightful blog entry today. Just wanted to post on a "hard" day too. Show you the whole picture.
Love to all!
