French Word of the Day: aïe (eye)- ow
I’ve gotten my final menopause shot! I’m in the home stretch here.
My back’s been in pain from it for about the past hour and a half. Whoever said “complaining never helps” is WRONG, because I’ve been lying on the couch saying, “Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow” without stop, and I’m feeling much better now. (It’s also possible my Tylenol finally kicked in, but that’s a minor detail.)
After my rough chemo session, I did develop two bruises on my arms.
I’ve spent most of my week figuring out how to both cover my arms completely and dress for the warm weather. They’re opposing goals, and the warm weather has been winning.
Other than the bruise and the vomiting, I have been getting better. It’s a slower process this time, but I still managed to have pancakes on Sunday. I mean, they were whole wheat, vegan and healthy, but I put syrup on them. That counts.
I will start writing more soon, but my computer’s acting up. It keeps turning off and then insisting that’s it’s December 31st, 2000 when it finally turns back on. This is probably indicative of some kind of expense malfunction. Or possibly my computer is a time machine…
