Radiation Week #2

by Val

I’m 20% done with radiation. That’s what I was telling myself on the way home. There was a battle going on. You are 20% done…but I’m tired. Tired of what? Radiation’s not shit compared to chemo. My body just isn’t cooperating with me right now and I’m frustrated. My left side hurts for some unknown reason. My wrist/hand hurts. I feel 90 years old. My right shoulder hurts and I think it’s running all the way down into my typing finger. My neck hurts. I think for right now that is a pretty good inventory of all the things that are hurting. I’m tired and I’m whiney. I don’t want to do this anymore.

But I’m 20% done and tomorrow I’ll be 23% done. By Friday I’ll be 30%. So I guess I’ll keep going.

On the plus side…I get to have some work done on my lower back tomorrow for the first time since October. I’m hoping that will start bringing some relief.

20% done. I can do this.
