Whines - Sigh, I had a bad night, so "Anxiety Girl" is ruling the day and I can't help feeling like all this ...stuff I'm going through will be for nothing and the cancer will just keep coming back.I'm tired and hungry and SO tired of salad and fruit and egg whites! Okay, yes, I can have plain meat, but without a little gravy or sauce, or a bun, I'm getting to wonder what's the point? I'm starting to dream of eating pasta and pickles, lol. And I can barely stand to watch tv - or read - because of the food I see advertised or described.
Wahoos - It's a gorgeous day and I plan to put the top down on my car when I drive to get my RA pill.I'll only have to be on this restrictive diet for 2 and a half more days (and if they say I have to stay on it longer, someone's gonna get hurt!)My cat, who was limping for 3 days, seems fine. I think she somehow pulled a muscle in her shoulder, twisting around on my lap as I petted her (she really gets into pets and scratches, lol.)Another wahoo! I'm not as radioactive as I was last time I had the pill, so only have to stay away from small children and people whose immune systems are low for one day. So dh won't have to sleep in the spare room - unless he wants to for one night. I'll suggest it to him, but I'm betting he'll take his chances and sleep in the comfortable bed, lol.
Woohoos ..All is well hereCooler temps on the way for the weekend
Whines .. None really
Hi Ann,I have to say something and I'm speaking up, not so that I can lecture you but only because I care about you and feel for what you are going through right now. (()) I know from my own experience in the past months, which was also a life threatening condition, that you MUST stay positive. No matter what is happening you MUST stay positive. Put all negativity out of your mind, entertain yourself the best you can at this time, eat as they say and don't think of other foods and keep that chin up. You can do this and you will do this and we are behind you so pleassssse stay positive. (())
I still have a longgggg way to go, Ann, and hopefully in the end will be well (I don't know that yet, but until that point I have to be positive and it's not easy and won't be for you either. But remember just keep in the moment and keep your attitude positive, there is no other way to get through it.
wordyone wrote:Thanks, Suzan I needed the talking to, lol. I am positive, most of the time. I know this is not as bad as it could be and that what I'm going through is temporary. I'm staying strong with my diet restrictions, but looking forward to Friday afternoon, when I can eat a few more things I like! But I still have days when my mind wants to think the worst possible scenario. On days like this, you and my dh help me keep things in perspective.
Ann, I'm glad Suzan gave you a pep talk!! This message from you sounds much better!! I can sure understand your bouts of feeling down though! Just don't let them take over or last more than a few minutes!! She is right, being positive is a very important part of getting well!! Also, don't make such a big deal out of food!! It's only food!! Your health is far more important than sauces and stuff like that!! Keep your chin up, everything's going to be okay!! This is just another detour!!
