A while back when I was beginning my radiation treatment I wrote about the similarities between training for a marathon and going through cancer treatments.
Well, now a few months and 25 treatments later I am facing the hard part of this "training". In particular;
you have to get up each day and push through physically weather you feel like it or not
you have to get used to pain and learn how to ignore it
The pain from the burns is much worse than the previous times I have had radiation. In particular, under my arm. My energy levels are so low that when I do feel ok, I want to do everything. That , however does not last long. Taking all these medications is also a struggle and knowing what the right thing to do and take make for very difficult decisions.
I know I have to get through this part and "this too shall pass". Thanks for listening & for your thoughts & prayers.
By the way,I would take training for and running a marathon over this any day!
