Feeling Fragile

I’m still feeling fragile emotionally. I know its part of the chemo cycle but it’s hard to deal with. I wish I could just snap myself out of this down in the dumps feeling.

Generally it takes a good week after chemo to start feeling half normal and that is just a day or two away ... that's when my old self should start creeping back in.

I think that will be all for now ... I hate this part of the cycle and I hate sharing it.

We always have to go down to come back up Daria. Surround yourself with things you love, that make you feel good and ride the wave. Know how much others are thinking of you ♥

Soon it will be over! This is good weather for down in the dumps feelings - you can just snuggle under a blanket and not feel bad about missing great weather.

I was just reading a page that I wrote a couple months ago in my journal..."While I feel fine today, there have been many times that I felt fragile -- really fragile -- as in "old lady" fragile." It made me realize how we must always hang onto God who is our strength. Hang in there. You'll turn the corner soon.

Do you live by yourself? Does having company, someone to chat with or even just watch tv with help you? I noticed with John that when he's by himself, he sleeps a lot more than when I'm with him. I think just having someone to spend time with gives him energy.

Gosh did that word "Fragile" bring back memories. I truly know that feeling. I am so sorry you must keep enduring it. Long gentle hugs. The down days really suck.

I'm so sorry that the emotional roller coaster is still whirling you around like this.
Try to hang on in there, and be gentle to yourself. I think the most important part of the process is to always remember your desire to live fully, regardless of your current ability to do so. The chemo and the cancer may temporarily take the latter, but we must never let them touch the former.
I hope your tomorrow will be better than today...

Sara Williams said...

but Daria, when you love someone or have a true friendship with someone you take the good with the bad. You are such an inspiration, you care, you share, you are a lovely friend and so you are more than entitled to share your bad days too.

(read my blog today, I really had a bad day lol)

Daria;

I so sorry, the emotional toll is often underreported and goes unknown.
My friend that's on chemo takes an upper that the Dr gives her. Not sure that's a good thing!
Funny movies seem to work for me but I run out of them.
Wish I was there to give you a hug, but since i can't consider yourself hugged from way over here in in the midwest!

I hated that part, too. We both know that it passes, but while you're in it it seems like it will never end.
