Trying to be Zen

But it's hard.  The sick weekend is so frustrating.  There are so many things I want to DO, and surprise, surprise, none of them include falling asleep in my recliner.  I know I have to rest, that my body is asking for rest.  I get it, I really really do.  I just don't like it much.

This too shall pass, right?  I already feel better today, so maybe I can get to some of the things on my massive to do list.

Maybe that's the problem.  Maybe I need to adjust my expectations and give myself a break.  Maybe it needs to be about priorities right now.  What do I really want to do?  What's really important?  What will I be glad I did, and what can I let go?  What makes me happy, and what just stresses me out?  I think I've always had a difficult time with balance, with mixing up wants and needs.  It will be good for me to think about this more.

Anyhoo, it's been a pretty typical post-chemo weekend.  The neulasta shot makes my head and bones ache, but tylonel helps.  I ate stuff yesterday, mostly noodles.  I slept a lot.  Today I hope to get out for a walk/run (heavy on the walking perhaps?). 


  1. Hang in there Sheri, enjoy your Easter with your family. Love ya.

  2. I hope you do all the things you want to do today that make you feel happy and relaxed. I just went on a run/walk myself heavy on the walk, and it felt good. Here's to feeling better soon!
    Thinking of you,

  3. I hope you get a good walk/run today. Been thinking about you.
