I get that question a lot. It cracks me up because people ask me that as if I’m lying about how I feel haha. I try to be as open and honest about this whole experience but maybe I need to be a little more raw! I really am doing ok…right this second.
It amazes me how quickly I can go from smiling and laughing to hurled over in a ball on the floor. Luckily that doesn’t happen often and hasn’t in a few weeks, but those are the daily extremes I deal with…SOMETIMES. Cancer is a fast moving ball game so one minute you might feel great and then the next you will be completely done for the day. And when the bursts of energy come it’s SO hard not to use every ounce. It’s hard for me to find the right balance of resting while still being productive. The doctor wants me to start working out “again.” That was cute. They thought I used to work out! So I’m trying to get up and move more. Once this LP finishes healing (pretty sure I have nerve damage still healing in my back) I should be able to move around a little easier.
As if my look with optune wasn’t awesome enough, I’ve added glasses to the mix. Just for writing and reading as of now, but I definitely needed some help in the vision department. I’m sure the tumor is what is causing the vision changes (I was warned of vision loss when I was diagnosed). Add another doctor appointment to the calendar!
