July 12, 2016 A Bit Sluggish

It’s already July 12th, man oh man where does the time go? After finishing my last chemo treatment on Thursday, I felt the side effects waking up Friday morning. I thought I was going to have a full day of productivity before the side effects kicked in again, but I was wrong. I did see an acupuncturist Friday which I believe has helped.

Over the weekend I felt sick, there is nothing about these side effects that I can find positive. Oh yes, yes there is, I forgot, not having to shave my legs, my arm pits and best of all pluck that little devil hair that continues to appear on the bottom of my chin. 🙂

I am post Night 4 and feeling so much better. The days of feeling like I have no energy and an awful hangover with my entire body being sore (I have had no nerve pain in my mouth or feet this time, I believe due to the acupuncture) are hopefully once again behind me for the next 2 weeks. The entire experience of feeling sick is enough to send anyone into misery or a depression. I am so thankful however it only has lasted 4-5 days the last two treatments. I often think of how people are coping with an illness they have that has kept them in bed for days or even years. I am thankful my sickness passes after a very short (feels like forever during the fact) time.

I created another video log last Wednesday and wanted to post it before I went in for my treatment. I apologize I haven’t had the opportunity sooner. Tonight, I am feeling good and decided after putting the children to bed I would finish the vlog and do a quick post, so here it is.

I really am hoping I get better at doing video logs as it is much quicker to update. If you would like to subscribe to my channel on youtube just click here: Subscribe Here.

Thanks again for all your continued prayers. With Much Love- Tara
