Let’s be real, 2017 was a total mind fuck for so many of us, am I right? I mean, the highs were super high but the lows…. shit, man- the lows were so low. That’s how life plays out though, I guess. With my diagnosis in particular, there’s still continued comfort in knowing that I’m not alone. There’s anger in knowing that I’m not alone. All while sometimes feeling so alone. But like I said, life, overall, has its ups and downs- for all of us. So I’m trying to remind myself often of something a friend recently said- “Worrying is borrowing trouble from the future.” Just another reminder to try and be more present.
I’m presently really excited to go into the new year with my yoga teacher training program through Yoga Sol. Tomorrow is my first meeting and I am suuuuuuper pumped. Like little kid at Christmas pumped. Like fist pumping pumped. Like that kid on the Disney commercial from like 20 years ago pumped. You get it. I’ll be attending classes every Wednesday evening, all day Saturdays and some Fridays- through the end of March and- have I mentioned- I’m pretty pumped about it.
Treatment wise, I’m back on that X. My side effects remain tolerable. A couple of minor mouth sores, dry skin, and a gnarly split between my right pinky toe and foot. Again though, all tolerable. So most likely, when I see my oncologist later this month, I’ll continue with 2 more cycles. Which I am very cool with.
For those of you wondering, we have officially moved into our new home (about 7 minutes down the road) and are almost completely unpacked. We are digging the new place- even if Harlon says he sees bunnies hopping upstairs from room to room 😳. Feel free to message me for the new address. Maybe, you too, can come over and visit the bunnies.
Here’s wishing everyone a HEALTHY and HAPPY 2018.
