Ok...so this weird and a bit light hearted, but we all need to think of something weird and wacky from time to time!
I have found that since my diagnosis, I have experienced a range of cravings...have you experienced the same thing?
Initially, after diagnosis, I really wanted wine and chocolate..lots and lots of wine and chocolate!
Before surgery, I was a diet coke addict, I drank diet coke for breakfast and throughout the day, since surgery however, I'm sure the coke company will be posting a significant loss in profits, because I can't STAND the stuff!
I woke up from surgery craving ginger ale and Luigis Lemon Italian Ice. That craving continued well into the second chemo.
Then around the third chemo, I started craving apples...gala apples....cut into wedges...at room temperature. A very specific and weird craving, it lasted until between the fourth and fifth chemos.
The most recent craving, since about chemo #5, has been citrus. I crave all things citrus. Lemonade, Orange Juice, Extra Limes in my Corona, starburst fruit juice...if it's citrus I must have it!
What are you craving?
I have to run to the store for more lemonade ...I'll check in when I get back!
