My Tuesday teaching style.  I could not wear anything tight.  I was better than yesterday, but I still feel nauseous even with medications.

My husband was a day off.  I asked him to come with me to NYC just to accompany me for a trip.  The 42nd street at  The Grand Central Station, the street security was very tight for today.  It was because President Obama making a speech at United Nations’ General Assembly to address the world leaders to fight against Islamic terrorists and Russian aggression.

Well, because of that, I could not find any taxi to go with.  I asked my husband to carry my big purse and walked 2 blocks.  Lucky us, there were a lot of taxis there.

My teaching went well.  I was not feeling great in encouraging students to present their opinions in class, but I have some very good students in class providing good questions.  Those questions enrich other students in our discussion.

Before I left my office, I took anti-nausea medication for the trip back.  It was helping me a lot while coming home.  I got in a taxi, but the driver said “don’t take it it will take forever,” so I jumped off and decided to take subway to the Grand Central Station.  It was strange that a taxi driver commenting that, what a business, but it helped me a lot..  I was concentrating on the outside view from my train.  Breathing was helping me calm down.  I was really happy to come home for rest.

[Physically] Nausea (medications, morning, early evening and before going to bed).  Fatigue.  I believe my face is really puffy even though my weight is lighter than before.  I lost some sharpness in my facial edge.  My intestine moves a lot at random brief moments, it moves as if it is jumping here and there all the time.  Some gagging.  A lot of burping.

[Emotionally] It was a big relief that my teachings were over!  Don’t take me wrong, I love teaching.  Those two days were tough and I was just happy that I made it.

本日のスタイル。とにかく 体に締め付けるものなしスタイル。昨日よりはましだけれど、それでも 薬を飲んでいても気持ちが悪い。

ハズバンドがお休みの日だったので、マンハッタンに出るのに 一緒についてきてもらう。グランドセントラル駅のある42丁目に出てタクシーを拾おうとすると、今日は 国連でオバマ大統領が演説を行うために セキュリティーが高くなっていて、交通規制が激しく、タクシーがながれていない。オバマ大統領は、イスラムのテロリストとロシアの攻撃的な態度に対して警戒を強めるべきだと働きかけた。ハズバンドにかばんを持ってもらって2本向こうの 5番街まで歩く。気持ち悪い。そこではタクシーはたくさん流れていて、タクシーに乗れてほっとする。

Teachingは 体調が悪いなりにはうまく出来た。生徒達にどんどん意見を出してもらうのは今日は いまいちできなかったけれど、何人かが考え抜いた意見を出してくれて、それから生まれたディスカッションが面白かった。

オフィースを出る前に、今日は薬を飲んで出る。タクシーに乗ったら、タクシーのおじさんに「今日の道は混んでいるから タクシーに乗るのはやめておきな」と商売っ気のないコメントに 仕方がなく 地下鉄に乗ってグランドセントラル駅まで出る。外の景色に集中して帰宅。

[体調] 気持ちが悪い(薬を朝 夕方 寝る前に飲む) 疲労感あり。体重は太ってきたわけではないのに、顔のシャープさにかける。抗がん剤治療を始めてから、実は内臓が ぼこぼことたまに 動くんだ。一瞬ジャンプするような そんな具合で。嘔気にゲップがひどい。

[心理] この2日をのりきったぞーと ほっとする。
