Feelings

Ahhh…Sleep!

Mood: Happy  😁

I am feeling sooo much better today! Getting a good night’s sleep makes such a difference for me, especially these days. I wish I could sleep this well every night, but it’s usually only a few times a week.


Good, quality sleep is so important while fighting cancer. I am on a few cancer apps and I see more often than not, that cancer patients have a hard time sleeping.

Sure, resting is easy, most of the time, but getting enough sleep is difficult and at times, impossible.

Experiences

No Sleep, again

August 9th, 2019

Mood: Exhausted  ☹

So last night I had another night of only about 2 hours of sleep. I finally started to fall asleep about the time Bo woke up, 7am and I slept until my alarm went off.

My oncologist explained yesterday that the steroids and the Benadryl are working against each other. Both medications are important while going through chemo. I did have both of them as well during the first two months of my chemo and I had no reactions at all. But now that I am on Taxol, things are different and I am not clear as to why.

So, we have to do more adjusting next week….I can’t live like this! 😣
