An Unwanted Journey: Day 0061 - Tired
What to do when you’re tired?
I don’t know. Don’t ask me. I’m too tired to really care.
This afternoon, that’s exactly how I feel – drowsy, my eyelids are drooping. I find it difficult to even lift my wrists a little when I’m typing. Is this because of the radiation and chemotherapy or am I just a slouch? I suspect it’s the treatment I’m receiving. The radiation oncologist told me as much when I had a consultation with him this afternoon.
But we’re only at Day 12 of 28, for God’s sake! “It’ll get worse,” is what he told me.
Last Friday, I felt like I could take on the world. I even wrote about it. Today, all I want is a nap.
But what about my attitude? Can’t I do something to perk up and fight this?
Who knows? Maybe tomorrow.
