Everything I read before I started chemo mentioned having good days and bad days, and fatigue. Being a very high-energy person, I really never experienced fatigue before so I wasn't exactly sure what that would feel like. Well, what "they" say is true. It's crazy how different I feel from one day to the next. Yesterday I was so weak, hungry, tired and COLD. I had the strongest craving for pot roast.... I couldn't shake the craving. I don't know if my blood counts were down and I needed protein or just what it was, but I couldn't get pot roast out of my head. I found a local restaurant that had pot roast on their menu and picked an order up after school. It was the BEST meal I've ever had, isn't that funny. Then I crawled up in my lounger with piles of covers trying to get warm. I was so tired and achy, praying I wasn't getting sick. I finally gave up and went to bed about 7:30-8:00. Today I feel absolutely WONDERFUL..... strong, warm, happy, great appetite. Isn't that crazy..... I now know what it means to take one day at a time.
P.S.- the hair is still hanging on for dear life, ha ha ha.
