Day 2: Feeling Fuzzy

On Tuesday, I woke up feeling pretty good. I took my thyroid medicine before eating, had my breakfast, fed Maja, then went for a walk with Maja in the Snugli. By the time I put her down for her first nap, I was tired. I took 1 Dexamethasone steroid at lunch. I meant to take it with breakfast but forgot. My plan was to take one with breakfast and one at around 3 p.m. so it didn't mess with my sleep.

I started feeling a little fuzzy around noon. When I get this way, I can't remember when I've taken pills or what I've taken or who I've talked to or any small details. I have to make sure someone is in charge of my pills so I don't take the wrong ones...that happened last time.

Before bedtime I took my Celexa anti-depressant, and a Lorazepam which is for anxiety. It helps me relax so I can get to sleep. I went to bed at around 11 p.m.

The day after chemo is usually a pretty easy day. Not bad.

Hillary,
I found your blog through a OVCA
messageboard I visit sometimes.
I'm very interesting in reading
all of it and responding, but it
almost always tends to be very
late at night and I'm not thinking
clearly. I've been through much of
what you are going through now.
And I understand how you are
feeling. It's hard for people to
know how this illness is unless
they are dealing with it.
I'll get back with you at a better
time. Take care

Thanks, Susan! I hope you're doing well.
