I love to read, but my attention span is a mess. I read pages before noticing I haven't comprehended one word. In the first "week of worry" the fabulous friends in my Book Club gave me a goody basket which included magazines. Even my bookie friends knew I was better off flipping through colorful pages than absorbing real words.
But as time passed, I was less scared by the book with the title "How Not to Die" and I didn't roll my eyes as "Peace, Love & Healing". I still had my Kindle books at the ready, but I was ready to open up to the subjects I had wanted to ignore.
And then today, I got my treatment plan. It's been 50 days since I was diagnosed with cancer. It's been 4 weeks since I had my lumpectomy and today I finally learned that yes I will be doing chemotherapy for 12 weeks... and yes it is the kind that will make my hair fall out ... and I don't want to start reading about cancer right now. I don't want to Google the internet to find out tips about handling all of this. I really just want to color in my coloring book and chew my Chiclets gum. Thanks, Diane!
Cancer - Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
