At fifteen weeks into treatment, I'm not feeling like much of a trooper. I'd have to say this really "stinks a big one," a phrase I learned from the beautiful Newberry Award winning book, Rules.
Most days I feel overwhelmed, and sometimes crushed, by the physical and emotional challenges that treatment brings.
Of course I thought I was 'prepared' for the treatment and how hard it would be, but I really had no idea how physically and emotionally exhausted I would be simply surviving each day.
I'd apologize for the 'downer' of an update, but I'm working on not apologizing so much. I'm just honestly answering the "How am I doing?" question.
P.S. I highly recommend the book Rules, for yourself or your children. It's an amazing story about friendship, disability, and acceptance.
