Chemo is kicking my butt.
But at least I’m making progress on my reading and sock knitting.
SUDDENLY ALLERGIC TO SOCKS
And the hand-knit safe ones that are free of elastics and rubbers are too expensive so I guess it’s time to learn how to knit socks!
By that reasoning I’m one of the coolest!
I’m awesome. Who cares if I pooed the floor. Life goes on. Shitting the bed apparently even won me a follower.
Weeping gently cause I just shat the bed.
I have to walk through my mother’s room to get to the only restroom and my diapers and I haven’t needed them in so long and her boyfriend is staying over and I hope I didn’t drip on the floor and I have no control of my body…
I’ve been getting SEVERE pain all along my spine mostly focused in the thoracic area between my shoulder blades but also in my lower spine and into my hips. I saw a doctor for it today (also because I was very pallid) and I’m now on 100mg of Tramadol + 1000 mg Tylenol every six hours and that seems to make me functional although I’m still walking with a cane. I got some X-rays taken and my doctor’s agree that an MRI is a good idea but for insurance purposes we have to wait.
I’m going to the Pain Clinic for my initial visit tomorrow and hopefully I’ll get this shit handled a little better and I won’t have to worry about my GI denying Remicade doesn’t give you joint and bone pain even though it’s been regularly documented. Hopefully the spine issue is just a side-effect of chemo but if it’s something else It’ll be good to get it checked out and not just treated for symptoms.
This week on WTF BODY we look at grey hair?!

THIS IS THE QUESTION YOU AND ALL THE TRANSFORMER ROBOT FETISHISTS ARE ASKING.
IT’S OKAY Y’ALL
I’m on massive Rx doses of vitamins now.
GUESS WHO’S OFFICIALLY MALNOURISHED AGAIN
It’s meee! (Ugh.) I’m low on potassium and critically low on vitamin D and before anybody asks: I go outside every day. This is not a sunlight or diet thing.
That’s right! GOOD Ol’ MALABSORPTION!
