It’s currently 3:31 am. Like so many other times I’ve written in the hospital, it’s late at night and I have nothing much else to do. I’m starting to feel the Jekyll to Hyde transition in my personality that chemo causes. As well as a decrease in my intelligence. This is all only temporary though, and I expect to be just fine in two months when I’m done with this. My doctor decided to try to get the last two spinal taps done, but if they cause issues, we’re not going to push it too much. I got readmitted into the hospital just a few hours ago, and it’s rough now because I know what’s coming with the boredom and mood swings. Fortunately, I’ve met a girl who’s been through similar things, and she’s always there to talk to. It’s nice to have someone who understands so well and who can see past the mood swings and all the other personality issues treatment causes. Anyway, that’s about it for today, I’ve been meaning to do these more often, so I figured I’d give a quick update.
Luckily I have enough energy to write this. For the past few days, I’ve been extremely sick, with a fever around 103, dizziness, nausea, and just about anything else you can think of. Turns out, my body has decided to start reacting to chemotherapy and it’s anything but pleasant. They expect me to recover in the next day or two, but for now I’m pretty miserable. As always, I’ll keep you all posted.
