Feeling better everyday....

Well its the end of hump day.  Thank God!  Been a very long week but I am pulling through.  I am felling better and better everyday. Still tired a lot but I am listening to everyone and taking it easy. I still work and the boss and foreman are asking how I'm doing at least 20 times a day.  I can do this.  I'm thankful that I still have my appetite.  I have been eating like a horse.  No metallic taste, vomitting or anything like that. I have a temper noe but am doing everything that I can to control it, some people know exactly what buttons to push.  I just bite my tounge, count to ten and pray that I can make it through one more day.Looking forward to Friday.  Mom and Dad are celbrating their 30th wedding anniv.  Having a big party in OKC.  That just happens to be shot night too.  I will wait until the party is almost over and disappear for about 15 minutes and take my shot.  With all my family and friends there I KNOW it will be just fine.Starting to have restless nights.  I woke up at least 20 times last night thinking that it was time to go to work but I had only been asleep for an hour or so.  The benadryl I take at night doesn't seem to be working anymore.  I'll talk to the Dr. and see if they can help me get some sleep.  Rash is better too.  Had a nurse call me yesterday and check on me.  I was dumb-founded.  I didn't think that people cared that much anymore.  Made me smile.  I told her about the rash and she gave me a recipie for a lotion to put on my rash.  Thought I'd share it with you.  I'll post on the discussion boards.

Glad you are feeling better and got help for the rash. I really think being outside helps the mood even if it is at work. Great attitude your standing strong.

YOu can do this! Keep counting to ten, as many times, that you need to. Stress is just not worth it, while being on tx. I\'m telling you........let things GO.
I averaged about 5 hours asleep per night, on tx. My sleep pattern was way off. Good for you to ask your dr, for something. I didn\'t.
