Day two... I seem to get two good days before feeling sick, so today I did a crap load of little errands, ran four miles, bla bla bla. I am tired now. Tomorrow I will attempt to motivate to walk with a friend at eight (!) complete with running back to the car. And still hope to have energy for a lunch date at the Indian buffet. That place is a real highlight. I always crave it. This is all part of trying to follow the advice of a friend who has been through what I am going through. She said to accept offers of help and socializing, which I haven't been very good with up to now. I am attempting to actually answer my phone, and (gasp) return calls, which I have not been too great about. But see? I have two dates tomorrow, after which I will need a nap but whatever.
Chemo was uneventful. I did run into a friend in there who is also having chemo, and with whom I had been meaning to get in touch but hadn't. It was nice to sit and chat with her, oddly comforting to talk with someone in my boat, though I do not, obviously wish for anyone to join me in this boat. It is a shitty, scary boat, but I am making my adjustments in it. I will write a longer post when I can think of something incredibly interesting to write about.
Oh yes, there is one thing. I found the perfect head wear for a bald woman. If you have a friend who is stuck with a bald head get her one of these. Go to rei.com and search under women's headwear for a Buff. There is a summer ( lightweight, coolmax fabric) as well as winter variety. I opted for summer because my hats are so hot indoors. It is a long tube of fabric, no seams, breathable, and all that, and if you watch the video at the listing a nice woman will show you a gazillion ways to wear it.
