Can’t freakin’ sleep aka radiation therapy sucks!!!

I fell asleep only to wake up half an hour later to throw up. I am so nauseous, my scalp is burning, I am weak and feel like a limp spaghetti noodle. I am just starting week 2 and I don’t know how I am going to get through the rest of this week and the 5 others ones coming up. For some reason this round of radiation is hitting me very hard. I guess it’s where I am weaker, weigh less, I don’t know, but damn I feel like death. I lay here on the bed, or on the couch, usually without music or TV on. My sleep patterns are screwed, I will be up all night one night, then another night I will go to bed early and sleep for hours (all night).  I just want these weeks to hurry up and fly by.

Anyhow, why I am writing this blog —got sidetracked bitching haha. I was thinking, everyone loves my recipes, they love hearing about things I cook and I thought –“why not make a recipe blog”. Would you all read it? Use it, if I did? And can y’all come up with a good name for it? My brain isn’t functioning and if I think too much I make my cancer hurt (hehehe). So what do you think? Recipe blog with all kinds of yummies?!?!?! I think KNOW it would be fun as hell for me to do! I will also accept submissions so that would be interactive and fun for everyone!

sleepykittyOk, I am going back to bed to try to sleep (I hope). Please comment on this one (that includes you lurkers). Let me know what you think of my idea!

    I love how the tags read: cancer, baking…

    Hey babe, I’ve been waiting for YEARS for a compilation of your recipes. I think I’m passed the begging stage. I WANT RECIPES! Give ’em up mah boy!! Let’s us all in on some of those yumster ideas you’ve been hoarding.. And also: you always give great advice for household products and thingees of that nature, I’m sure a little consumer products advice wouldn’t be bad as a tag along subject either!

    Do it! Do it!

    I love you :))

    <bHi V,
    I think it would be great to have a blog like that. I don’t cook, I’m really really bad at that kind of stuff, so would probably like to see your blog, but doubt I could ever do anything with the information.

    I wanted to mention that on the news recently was a study that found that ginger root tablets were good for allieviating nausea from chemo. Not sure, if that would work for you, here is a link to what was on the nbc nightly news. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3032619/#30752650

    Hope you are feeling better and can get some rest. Good and healing thoughts to you. Okay I am trying to bold, hope it works.

    Hi V,

    I am so sorry about what you are going through with this hellacious radiation. I think it is a testament to you that you can think about doing a recipe blog in the midst of all this shittiness. You rock! I would be a loyal reader of your new blog! You could call it Cooking With V! 🙂

    Hi V,

    <bI wanted to add something about nausea. I have nausea issues a lot and a really strong gag reflect. And when I get sick it is much worse. Anyways the reason that I am mentioning this is because I use peppermint essential oil. I take two or three drops and mix it with some aloe vera gel (or lotion is good too) and then rub it on my tummy on the spot where my stomach is, right below the ribs on the left hand side. It works like a miracle for me. I know it is well known for helping stomach upset. I used to get up every day and dry heave for a while and quick applications of the peppermint oil stopped the stomach spasming within 30 seconds. A good place to find essential oil is a health store or vitamin store. If you are having trouble finding a place, let me know and I can send you some links.

    <bAlso I wanted to add that I am a Reiki Msster/Teacher and wanted to know if you would like to be added you to my list for distance healing. Reiki is universal life force energy and is a hands on or off way of helping someone to heal. I do it about ten or more times a month on the distance healing, though this month have done it more and hope to do it about 20 times a month this month and next month as well. If you want to know more about Reiki as well, let me know and feel free to contact me offline if you, your wife or your best friend are intersted. I try to pay special attention to the survivors of abuse that I have on my list, as most of them are online friends.

    Good and healing thoughts to you.

    Hi V,

    I wanted to add when my Aunt cancer and had radiation she liked me to rub aloe vera gel gently, unscented, onto her scalp. She said that it helped soothe, cool, and moisturize her. I think that you don’t have to get the fresh or expensive stuff either, just the stuff you can buy at KMart for about five bucks worked good for her.

    Good and healing thoughts to you.
