As miserable as I am, I have not had to endure the pains of advanced stage 4 lung cancer like I imagined the first few weeks. My tumor in my head continues to be stable, slightly diminished since March scan. I will have another radiation oncology appointment next week, then a PET scan, then another appointment, this time with my oncologist. All I wanna hear is that I’m a miracle and I wanna see him scratch his head. If I can make them do that, I will stop taking Tagrisso.
The side effects suck. I have had chronic chapped and broken out lip area. My nostrils get little pimples and they crack and hurt. I invested in some natural remedies that help treat MRSA. That is after all, what lead to my April hospitalization. And I just feel like this is all related. I spent a near $90 the honey I got was nearly $28. I also got tea tree oil and oregano oil. I also added vitamin E oil to use as the carrier oil.
I put the honey and oil mixture on my face and I’m getting ready to go shower in a few minutes. It’s been there all day. I also got bandaids and some L-Lysine and hot/cold packs.
All I know is that everything has changed for me. I’m mortal and my indulgence hasn’t helped me. I miss people. Six months since I was hospitalized will be marked on the 17th of June. Im floored with how amazing my son is. He checks on me, helps me anyway he can and there is just a deep and genuine love.
i have a bazillion projects going right now. Ancestry, rearranging my room to make a metatation area, im working on letters pictures and stuffing a box for the kids. My chest, still, is empty and hollow. I forever will wonder why I have repelled people and live with the conflicted feelings every time I look at my son because he, more than anyone else, got shafted. He is the one person that loves me unconditionally. He listens to me, even when I talk about things that are unreal.
My eyes are awake. I am far from being innocent and the evil in the world slithers around and waits patiently to strike. I don’t trust anyone anymore….well, the one thing that hasn’t failed me, really two things, God and my son….three – Mikki. I don’t deserve either of them. But I have learned the value of a person isn’t measured by anything other than what is in their heart and God knows my fear and my paralysis in certain situations. He also knows my intentions are pure.
Time to shower! I can’t stand this honey concoction on my face anymore.
