I am surprised at quite how crap this radiotherapy is making me feel, I guess I thought because it is not as invasive as chemo that I would not feel so bad but boy was I wrong about that. I have never had tiredness like this in my life, it is all encompassing and there is no getting away from it, Worse luck. I know it will all be worth it in the long run but the long run seems so far away sometimes. I will admit I am finding it difficult to keep positive right now and the smallest problems seem to be blown out of all proportions . I am lucky in that I have a wonderful counsellor I can talk to when ever I need to and she tells me all of this is completely normal and it will pass eventually it just seems like it won’t though.
My Richie is definitely slowing down bless him, he is not keen on walkies anymore and his appetite is not what it was but I am keeping a very close eye on him. He is such a wonderful little chap and I love him to bits, just seeing him curled up snoring on my bed makes me smile. Last night he snuggled in so close to me and we both fell asleep all cuddled up ………. heaven !
So all in all even though I am feeling all down in the dumps and pretty pants I’m still a very lucky woman with two amazingly wonderful dogs, a pretty amazing OH, the most fabulous parents and THE most wonderful, awesome, handsome but annoying son in the world.
Me and the furballs are off for a lay down now
