It was better, again, than yesterday. I really hope this improvement in the past Day 5 and Day 6 will be my cycle for the rest of my 5 chemotherapy. In the next cycle, I will be teaching on Day 6. When there is some “must do” things that I care, I should be able to pull myself together on Day 6, I can tell. The course is called Fashion Economics. It is a field of economics, but main theme is about fashion. I created the course outline, proposed to and approved by collage and NY state. It is brand new and only run for 2 semesters yet. This will be my third semester teaching that subject. This semester, it expanded into 2 courses. I am excited about it. I am the only one who can teach that course and no other economists can replace me. I must do it!
[physically] My body is 1/4 of my regular energy level. A light fatigue. Laying down most of the time. Nausea around lunch time and I took a medicine. No appetite. Never feel hungry without eating any snack during a day. Talking is not too tiring (it used to). I will contact doctor’s office tomorrow to inquire about my continuous spotty period, still going on. Today was it’s 8th day.
[emotionally] BORED. I feel like a day after my fever is gone after catching a cold (yes, that is more emotionally). Slightly positive. Comments and e-mails from friends made me smile :-)!
I am so bored, but I don’t want to be actively moving around. I tried to go out for a walk, but it started to rain and I turned around to head home. I finally cleaned our kitchen casual dining table. I did not realize but if I don’t do it, things just pile up! Dishes are served on top of them. Table glass was sticky, I could not stand it any more and I could move and clean it. I can see my husband is handful with taking care of me and our son while he does his job. I will do what I can.
My boredom set a light on my photography again today. I don’t want to walk around much. I am afraid of contacting many people as I am more prone to infection today. Photography requires some time and now it is a perfect time. I had not done that for awhile.
