I haven’t blogged recently about how my treatment is going so I thought I would give a quick update.
I’m currently in the fourth month of my chemo injections.
Quite honestly, my body doesn’t want to do the injections or feel weak and sick. My body doesn’t want to have a needle stuck in it three times a week.
I get really anxious thinking about doing chemo three times a week. It’s discouraging because I’m fully aware of how much longer I have to go on my treatment and I’m fully aware of how slowly time seems to be moving.
I haven’t been feeling the best lately. I’m not able to get a good night’s rest because I’m up for hours at a time during the night and that makes my side effects even worse for the next day. The days after my injections are so awful and the change in weather hasn’t been pleasant and has caused so many more body aches and headaches. All of this has made schoolwork that much harder to do. Thinking about doing these chemo injections three times this week on top of already feeling sick really sucks. I’m certain that I currently have a touch of the flu but it’s hard to be sure on top of the chemotherapy symptoms.
I would appreciate any prayers you could send up for me.
“The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:14
I remember being so sick and tired and being so discouraged of only being in month 4 of 12 of chemo. After writing this blog, my mom ended up taking me to the hospital because I was so unwell, where I was pumped with antibiotics and fluid, and I remember how mad I was that I still had to do chemo that day on top of already feeling awful. I wanted to give up at that moment and be done with all of it – but I didn’t and I’m so proud.
