Well, it has been awhile since I entered a post. It is because we have been busy going back to school and with evening sport activities. I’ve actually been feeling fairly good. Three weeks ago I started radiation. The month before I had really started running again and managed to run 7.5 miles the day before radiation. I went back to work too. I uncovered my head and showed everyone my new hair which is darker and has more gray than before. It even has some wave to it. I am starting to feel the fatigue of radiation toward the end of each week…. Thursday and Fridays are tough. However, this weekend I ran into something new. It is now pretty hard to swallow. My Dr. warned me that this might happen although she described it as maybe a little scratch and that I might not even notice it. Well, I can certainly notice it. Yesterday, I thought that I was choking. In fact, it still feels like there is something stuck in there. Yuck. What I don’t like about this is the discomfort, obviously, but the unknown. How long do I have to put up with this? Will it get worse? I can also feel the depression that comes along with new health issues. Every time that I start to feel better something else comes along. It is hard to deal with sometimes. I don’t want any of this anymore.
