I think I got the hang of it now!
I started on 800mg, but I was getting so sick. I took a few days off and after seeing the nurse at MSkcc they decided to drop me down to 600mg. I was taking it in the morning. Every day at 10:45. Sometimes I went nuts & waited until 10:50! I would then prepare the couch or bed area with water, phones, computer and puke bucket. After doing this for 5 days I realized it just wasn't working. I also was spending all day sleeping it off (the fantastic pills).
This is what I thought to myself. Hello Self (imagine a big fluffy cloud over my head), If these magic pills work, and I am on this for a long time, I need to prepare myself and figure things out. This Self is totally not working!
Now I take them at night, before I go to bed. Perfect timing. I wake up more often, but it's a nice to have a full day to get things done.
They gave me a log sheet. Time, dose and why I missed a dose. That last section is what I call,"Michelle's complaint area". I list everything that bothers me. They must think I am nuts!
Every Friday I go in for blood work and a check up. This week I get to meet my new friend Elsa, who is doing the same trial! I am so excited! If you want to check out her blog, just go look under my comments and you will see her name. Elsa has been through an amazing journey. I commend her on her strength. Hugs to you Elsa!
My 10 minute waking moment is being pulled to my pillow by the pills, so sleepy. I am going back to bed
Off to counting sheep I go. Ok..truth is they are shoes that jump over that nice picket fence! I am off to counting Jimmy Choo's!!
Peace, Love & warmth (its freezing outside)
