And that she would be me. Was feeling pretty cocky last week.
This last week I thought maybe I was turning some sort of corner with my healing. I worked the soil, planted most the garden (although it took me three times longer) and my digestion for the most part cooperated. But this week I just hurt. My digestion is not cooperating, my neoropathy is bad, along with arthritis, and tendinitis. And I am tired. Been going to bed around 8:00 the last few days and up throughout the night with pain.
Enough about how I feel. My question is, when a person is almost debilitated for a length of time, what is a productive activity to do? I was starting to feel useful again. But then SLAM, it's like being hit by a shovel. Any suggestions that do not require fine motor skills, large motor skills, going 20 feet from bathroom, memory, energy, or I am afraid a sense of humor? I guess reading other blogs and watching it rain is it for today. My niece and I were talking about what I was like before cancer and now after. When listing the changes, I couldn't help but get a little depressed. If she would have talked to me last week I would have been much more positive.
On a good note, I was able to dry a load of laundry on the line and ride bike to store before digestion, and joints started up today. Well it's 2 steps forward, 1 step back. I hope reading this post was not too tedious for you to read. It's a balance of trying to write something worth reading and writing for my own therapy. So today was Konnie's Therapy session.
