A personal pet peeve is when a question is posted on a blog or a facebook that can easily be answered by typing it into Google. I guess it really only annoys me when it’s an obvious attempt to get comments, a straightforward question from someone who just didn’t think to google it because it’s not their habit, is not the same thing.


Cancer Complaint #921 (probably more like 780-a because I’m sure I’ve complained about this before)

It totally freaks me out when I’m tired. Everyone knows that the number one symptom of cancer is fatigue and in the months before I was diagnosed I was exhausted. I could not stay awake if we drove for more than 15 minutes and I was always saying to myself I’ll just close my eyes for a few minutes. This week I am TIRED! I have not been sleeping well so it’s not exactly shocking that I would be tired, and it’s prime spring allergy season, but yesterday at 4:00 pm I just could not keep my eyes open, at all. And then this morning after my alarm went off I fell back asleep!! I missed my morning biking because I fell asleep! My very first thought was OMG! It’s back! Pisses me off something fierce that I think that way now.


I am going to go see The Avengers movie this weekend. Yay! If you want to read a very detailed review please go here: ZOZ36  Excellent write up.


This week has been a weird week. I haven’t felt myself all week, and my husband has been a little testy all week. Even the dog was sick this week!  I must assume it’s a seasonal allergy thing for both of us. I’m also feeling a little stressed out about all the upcoming appointments (just a little, not a lot) and that’s not helping my mood or concentration. I cancelled my Oncologist appointment this week. That was kind of a big deal for me. It’s a follow up appointment that somehow fell of my visible calendar so I didn’t realize I had it until last Friday. I have another followup appointment with the Radiology Oncologists in a week and it will be the exact same exam and questions. I would really like to switch oncologists now so I decided to cancel this appointment and talk to the Radiation oncologists and just get their opinion about a few things before I reschedule with the regular oncologist.  Maybe I’ll also pick up some Claritin this week and see if that helps my muddled mind.
