Okay, I know I am supposed to be positive, but I have had nausea all day and I have been very depressed. I know I have to stay positive and keep my head on straight, but today I did a poor job of it. I have been driving my children crazy today as I repeatedly kept saying I was sick. Yes, I am not helping myself. I feel like I fell off the wagon or something. I do not know if it is just the nausea or the frustration of my final results taking so long and having to wait for chemotherapy. I do not mean to feel sorry for myself, but today I did. I am kicking myself tonight and telling myself that “I am going to be well, I am going to be well, I am going to be well.”
My son wanted to take me for a walk today, but I did not want to go. As I look at the day I really wasn’t positive today and I needed to “Stop and smell the roses’. When my daughter got home from work we all went swimming. Of course that was after my drama about nausea and my daughter having me eat toast and ginger ale. It was pretty cold by the time we swam, but I did exercise in the water for about 15 minutes. My children even had me go see the Movie “Magic Mike”. Wow those boys were sexy! I feel bad though as I coughed for much of the movie. That was very frustrating. The movie was filled with ladies of all ages and it was like going to a strip club. It was very nice of them to take me out.
We got home awhile ago and I had some yogurt as I really still feel nauseated. For some reason yogurt seems to help me. I also like hot tea with lemon and saltine crackers or dry toast when I am nauseated. I ended up having to take anti-nausea medication tonight. I feel a little better, but not great. I am going to do my best to enjoy the weekend. I can hardly believe it is almost the 4th of July. Time flies more and more. To a brighter and healthier tomorrow.
