Hang in there.
You're wasted now, but let me give you a bit of advice: Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and "keepin' on."
Your quote: "One day at a time" is it. Sometimes it needs to be even shorter...one foot in front of the other. I finished a 60-mile walk for breast cancer the month before I was diagnosed with breast cancer myself, and the way I got through chemo was to remember back to how hard it was to complete that looong, hard walk.
You WILL get to the finish line and feel better. This thing WILL be over then, and you can look back and reflect.
I am praying for your strength and your partner's healing.
P.S. Look at her and tell her she's beautiful once in awhile. I needed to hear that in my baldie state, even though I felt completely ugly and shriveled. I held onto the notion that I was in Pupae state (after the caterpillar state), waiting to be reborn as a butterfly.
I can't believe it! By pressing on the wrong key I deleted ALL the messages that were in this discussion group and now NO ONE can see them. YIKES! Please forgive me, and come on in and let's start again.
Hello, My partner is going thru Chemo for Uterine sarcoma 5 days straight with 2 weeks off. She is about to have her 4th treatment. I am the primary caregiver and it is really hard to keep myself going. I have to miss days from work and that means a very small pay day. One day at a time works for us, along with prayers.
