I found out on Friday. I had no idea. I thought I was a bit run down. Possibilities: thyroid problems, early menopause, plain exhaustion. I have a daughter with severe disabilities in case you hadn’t heard.
I could try to describe my thoughts but it would be a mesh of absolute panic and total denial with a bit of delirium thrown in. On Monday, while I got my bone marrow biopsy (all you need to know is: long needle into bone) I visualized that scene in Total Recall where Arnold Schwarzenegger pulled that metal sensor out of his nose. He screamed. I sang Igglepiggle’s theme song. That makes me officially stronger than the Terminator.
Like I said panic + denial + delirium.
Anyway, thought you should know.
I start chemo today and I can’t wait.
