Don't you LOVE that quote?! I think I've used it before, but it's just so perfect....I have it written on a sticky note on my mirror, so I read it a million times a day (not saying I look in the mirror that much...you get the point!), and it REALLY helps on days like today. It's like having your own personal cheerleader....that happens to be Eleanor Roosevelt :o)
(((FYI: I strongly suggest finding a quote, or some type of affirmation that fits in your life, and putting it somewhere you'll see everyday.)))
Am I gonna vomit instantly? How long before my hair falls out? Will my principal care if I have a mohawk? Am I gonna be so tired that I can hardly stand? How bad is it gonna make my body ache? How weird is food gonna taste? Can I drink alcohol (red wine is good, remember?!)? Am I really gonna be able to work tomorrow, or am I fooling myself? Is it gonna work? Can I somehow make sure I get this chair every infusion? What happens if it doesn't work? Can we, FOR ONCE, watch ESPN on one of the TV's?
For real you guys, we NEVER get to watch ESPN, or anything sports related while I'm here! It's a HUGE concern for me....just sayin.
You know one thing I LOVE about coming here? Everybody (almost everybody) knows exactly what I'm going through. I don't get looked at like I do everywhere else, I don't have to wonder what people are thinking, I don't feel like "the girl who keeps getting canSer". It's comfortable being here, and I guess it should be. No offense to those of you who are wondering if you look at me "that way" (you probably do!), but NEWS FLASH: I DONT FEEL SORRY FOR MYSELF, NEITHER SHOULD YOU! You don't have to look at me like all is lost! You should see some of these faces I get from people! I sometimes wish I had a camera ready, it's actually funny at times! It's just a lil canSer, no biggie :o)
Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!! My Brooklyn just got here!! Good thing too....this party needs to be livened (is that a word?!?!?) up a lil bit :o)))) Sooooooo, peace out for now (yes, I said peace out), I'll give you an "after" report later!
The "after" report (7:14pm)
|Ride or Die :o)|
So anyway, I'm supposed to be going to work tomorrow (I said I was gonna go, so I'm going!), so I am going to sleep.....IMMEDIATELY!!!!
~LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE~
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
