I Did It

Well I did it ... I went clothes shopping for the first time in eleven months. I've talked about doing it lots but I actually went out this morning and did it. I have a wedding to go to and want a new outfit.

As I went into the store, I kept my eyes peeled for every chair and bench in the store ... which I made use of. After having a look at what is out there for clothes, I thought maybe next week I'd come back with a shopping partner. I just didn't have the gas this time to pick and choose and try anything on. Next week I should be stronger and with help ... I'll be smokin'.

My nausea is a bit better today but this morning I had the diarrhea which I expected yesterday. After drinking two liters of hospital's CT scan cocktail, I always experience diarrhea. I didn't eat much yesterday so maybe that is why I had it today. I also had a bit of a lousy sleep last night which may explain that too.

Good for you! Mum and I usually park as close as possible then beeline for what she wants and I run around while she sits and gives me orders.....either that or I go and buy stuff, and hopefully dont have to take it back :)

YEAH to you for going shopping! Can't wait to see what you end up buying!

The amazing therapeutic powers of shopping. I almost feel like after every treatment doctors should tell you to go buy something nice for yourself! How on earth did you manage not to go for 11 months?

"I'll be smokin'?"

No, Daria, DON'T! Smoking causes cancer.

WhiteStone said...

I second Debby on the smoking. LOL. I know what you were saying, though, but I couldn't help but laugh. Glad you were able to go shopping...I'm such a wimp when I am "down" and I have to say I am in awe of you!!!

It's all baby steps isn't it Daria? I love that you don't push yourself beyond what you know you can accomplish! Hope you sleep well tonight.

Yahoodle, I am so glad that you were able to get out and go shopping. I know you were tired, but you were probably smiling too!

so you did it! shopping eh? good

Deb said...

It's a new beginning Daria and "yes" you will go back with a buddy and get that new dress! Take it easy and don't rush until you are feeling up to it.
My husband started to take B12 tablets about three weeks ago as it was suggested by Joanne on my blog. It's made a world of difference to him..honestly! Check with your dr first though and I trust you will be feeling more energetic soon.
Take care love!
Deb

Good for you Daria. Those first steps are the hardest and hopefully from now on it will get easier.
