Chemo and strike problems!!

I went for the fifth chemo today at nine in the morning.
I had a lot of medication I had to take yesterday and this morning, because of the strength of the chemo.
But the treatment went well. It took 1½ hour but we had coffee and juice and candy so it was not so bad;)

I asked about the different problems I have had since last time, and I got some eye drops, cause my eyes are very dry and watery (strange combination I know, but that is how they are).
I have had a lot of problems with pain in my mouth, being unable to eat and chew properly, and having a very bad taste in my mouth, and they told me I have a fungi infection, YIKES!! I got some meds for that too. I also got some meds for my stomach.
About the nose bleeds they told me not to worry, that it is normal, but if it got really bad I have to come see them about it.

When I was done, my parents and I went for coffee at my grandmother, cause I wont be able to go visit for the next week.
Then I felt really tired and nauseous so I went home.

And then other problems started.
My line of work, as a care helper, along with the nurses and other groups like us goes on strike tomorrow.
I haven’t paid much attention to it sad to say, I have had other things on my mind!!
But I called the union to hear what to do. They told me I had to get my tax papers and go into work everyday of the strike to register!!
So I called work and got an appointment tomorrow, then called my parents to drive me to that office that hold the papers.
When I came there they had lost my papers!!
I felt really sick and tired and was not up for a fight but luckily my mum went with me, and she told them off. She had them call the tax office to let them know that I was coming for a copy of the papers.
When we arrived there they were closed, and told me they had not received a phone cal!!
But I think the doorman could see I was ill, cause he let me in and found someone who could give a copy of my papers.
So I got them!! But I am glad my mum was with me, because I would not be able to handle all those people alone, when I feel ill.

So now I am just gonna watch some tv, and have some water. I got a bit of soup for dinner but I can`t eat.
But I am thirsty so I drink a lot which is good.

And that concludes my rambling for today;)

Love you all♥

at least you can drink without problems and don't worry I've had that eye problem for years too which is why I can't wear lenses.

I drink a lot, and that is good, and I can go a couple of days with out food. Just need a little with all the medication.

I'm pleased your treatment went well and you got answers for the other things.

That's terrible that you have to go into work like that because of the strike when you are off work sick. I'm pleased your Mum was with you.

Take care hon! get plenty of rest and just try to keep positive, you'll start to feel better in a few days.

*bigs hugs*♥

Thanks honey,
Yeah I am not pleased about going into work everyday, but if I don`t do it I wont get my paycheck during the strike, so I have to.

I will rest and take it easy and be sure to take the painkiller and all my medication, and then I get bettr in a week or so;)

♥love you♥
