Strengthen Yourself!
Now Playing: Day 3118-FREE YOURSELF... MY JOURNEY
Topic: STRENGTHEN YOURSELF!
 
  
 

No marriage is perfect.

No relationship is perfect.

Yet, none of us will ever truly be perfect either.

However, we could all strive to be a far better person today than we were yesterday.

There is always room for improvement because let's face it... even life isn't perfect.

As we grow... we mature.

As we learn from past mistakes... we make peace with what is and what may never be.

That's the thing about being imperfect and living in a imperfect world. There's always room and there's always time for personal growth. 

There are things as I grow older and much wiser that no longer serve me well. There are things that I as well will no longer tolerate. But there are always ways to Free~Yourself and be at peace with sometimes what is and what will never be.

"Strengthen yourself"

And because of that very saying.. I started to strengthen my broken body.

I walk for strength.

I walk to heal.

I walk to become a better me.

One Step Closer Of Realizing Our Dreams♡
Mood:  happy
Now Playing: Day 3116-FREE YOURSELF... MY JOURNEY
 
 

One day your going to wake up and not be able to do those things you wanted to do... Life does happen.

Stop putting it off, whatever it is, and work for it! Even if its scary or you may even fail.

 

We have been planning for more than a few years to make that final yet permanent move out west. There were occasions and many obsticles where life got in the way but we never gave up.

 

Dreams are meant to be fought for, that's what makes them so amazing!

As of this afternoon... We literally moved one step closer to realizing one of many dreams... no pun intended.

A Few Cancer Treatment Thoughts..
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Day 3115-FREE YOURSELF... MY JOURNEY
 
 

 It helps to have a pre-treatment ritual.


The first day of treatment is like the first day of school, exciting but your still a bit hesitant. The day before, your mind starts racing with both good and bad thoughts, but regardless, I always make sure to get my game face on. I always bring my protein shake and a packet of saltine crackers with me. Although most cancer treatment centers have an array of sodas, snacks and lots of coffee available for patients and loved ones.

I always do my best to look presentable. I guess this is just my way of feeling normal, not sick. A new pretty fingernail polish, curling my hair before leaving the house or even putting on my lucky pair of earrings. I've learned by my own personal experience that every cancer patient has their own way to psych themselves up the day before or the day of treatment.

 

Side effects... some come on quicker than others.


Your oncologists and treatment team will give you a general idea of how you may feel 24 to 48 hours after treatment, but each patient is truly unique in how your body responds to various treatments. I am one with major delays when it comes to post-treatment side effects. Although when going through radiation therapy, my stomach began gurgling right as I got off the treatment table. Chemotherapy makes one feel overall weird with their body. Headaches and even migraines are very common so keeping Tylenol around is a must.

Zofran and Marinol are wonderful drugs to help with post-treatment nausea, but as with any pre-existing GI condition, expect nausea and vomiting regardless of what you are prescribed.

Some of us have to take it easy the day after treatment, while others may feel fine. Once again, our bodies all respond differently to cancer treatments. I have my good days, some even back-to-back. Also... I have my bad days, sometimes as well back-to-back.

Diet usually consists of keeping it very bland and taking in additional fluids. Decaf iced coffee works great for me as well as various protein shakes. While other patients do well with cream of wheat oatmeal, saltine crackers, frozen popsicles and powdered shakes.

At the end of the day... the most powerful weapon you can have during any cancer treatment is a strong support system.

I am blessed to have amazing friends and my little family.

XOXOXOXOXO

Here She Comes... Mrs. Stand UP For Yourself!
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Day 3114-FREE YOURSELF... MY JOURNEY
 
 
 

Yes, things like this really happen in my life folks.

Through trials and tribulations I have become that much stronger than the day before... week before... month before... and even decade before.

I am also a firm believer that all cancer Warriors should remember one Golden Rule which is YOU have the power to speak up and stand up for yourself.

Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

Amen.

Woke Up Feeling Grateful♡♡♡
Mood:  special
Now Playing: Day 3113-FREE YOURSELF... MY JOURNEY
 

 

This morning I woke up feeling super grateful.

Grateful for my little family that sticks by my side, sometimes literally-hehehehehe through my bad days. Especially during my latest round of treatments.

Grateful for friends that put up with me never calling when not feeling my best... but that I know are still there as we rekindle our friendship.

Grateful for my legs that continue to bring me to places and for my eyes that allow me to see the world far differently now.

Grateful for my fur babies who love me even when I've been feeding them the wrong food over the past 24-hours. Dog food to the cats, cat food to the dogs. Hahahahahaha! Oopsie!

And also grateful for you, you and even my newest friends, all of YOU that send me incredibly thoughtful messages that so often brighten my life when I'm having a grey day.

🌼Thank YOU all very very much from the bottom of my heart🌼

There Are Always Gonna Be Those Days...
Mood:  chillin'
Now Playing: Day 3112-FREE YOURSELF... MY JOURNEY

 

Lordie!

There are good days, great days and then there are really bad days... like today. Actually let me say a really bad day that started around 9pm last night.

Hair appointment... CHECK!

Having a much needed date night planned for us... CHECK!

Making plans for dinner at the riverboat restaurant that we have been wanting to try out since moving here in our little Lazy River Town... CHECK!

2 hours later after chemo treatment finally begins rearing it's ugly head... CHECKED OUT!

I have been puking on and off since then... not fun.

Yes, tis fun doing the little skits, videos and crazy karaoke tunes with my best country voice possible as a means to escape far more serious matters of life. My health and all I endure to keep going the best I know how. Yet, the realty of life has to hit ya sometime.

Right? Right.

We have to be at the hospital bright and early tomorrow morning. Just doing my best to ride this wave of vomiting and nausea the best way I know how...

Couchbed, side table of comfort items and my trusty bright yellow puke pan in hand.
