Ever have one of those days in the 'cancer experience' when one little thing happens that you have to attend to and all of a sudden it's like a house of cards - this one last card you have to deal with brings it all crashing down? Yesterday was like that for me. I had just found out the day before that I had to do some extensive testing at home for YET ANOTHER new freakin symptom and after that it seemed I couldn't take one more thing that I needed to do, small things really - daily routine thingies - but all of a sudden they all seemed insurmountable. Ever have that happen? Overwhelmed, I guess, but sometimes I wonder if I will get into this major 'funk' and just stay there. Know what I mean? It has only happened once before and that was 3 years ago so not going to sound any alarms yet but sure don't like the way it feels. My solution is to simply shut everything down, take time to rest and if I can manage to do something entirely fun and frivolous like a little craft or something (not a crafty person) maybe it will help to take my mind off everything else. Hate to sound like a moaner but I think we all can get here very easily if we have too much on our plate with all this medical cwappola. lol. Anyone else ever feel this way?
