Tired Is An Understatement
I've been kinda loopy lately. I've been needing lots of naps this week and then my sleep schedule gets all screwed up. I've got an appointment to see my PCP soon and we're going to do some blood work I've been putting off for some time. I'm also thinking I've developed a delayed version of neuropathy. I've been noticing it getting worse over the past month or so. My arms and legs have been falling asleep very easily, especially when I'm sleeping. I wake up and my arm is entirely numb. I'm also having weird stuff going on with my feet. They feel kinda swollen at all times. So then I get Googling on these newly found side effects and I come up with either neuropathy (which makes sense) or diabetes (not cool). Bleh. I need to get active. More active. But I like naps so damn much. Hopefully this will all be determined and I'll get back to normal soon. Oh and my attention span is exceptionally low these days. Dammit.
I feel like I'm missing something in my life and need to find it. Bold statement, but I think that would help.

My chemo countdown was completed on June 14, 2007.
I've still got some spots on my chest, but have been it's just thymic rebound. On October 25, 2007 I was told that I'm officially in Remission.
My next scans are scheduled for NEVER! I'm done with scans! Only on the yearly blood work program!
Suck it cancer!
