hubby was told 1 month ago today he has mm. He has started Chemo (velcade, dex 2x weeks for 2 wks 1 wk off) He is also type 2 diabetic. The dex plays hell with his sugar levels for about 3 days.....he has no real side effects from velcade. He is exhausted all the time. He has had surgery to inject 'cement' into lower spine as mm severely compromised that...seems that his spirits are good..along with his eating. Having difficult time walking due to back pain. He is frustated that all he can do is lay down and Im having hard time telling him that is what his body is telling him to do. I have good days and feel so upbeat its kinda scary. I have other days where I could cry at the drop of a hat. Im hoping my emotions will come into line soon as it is hard to go to work on those 'bad' days and keep from being overwhelmed. Medical bills rolling in now.....and that only adds to my anxiety (Im the only one with income right now)trying to figure out how to make ends meet and not go crazy. I try deep breaths to calm myself and it works until mailman comes with more medical bills that have to get paid. On a side note, I am AMAZED at medical costs.......even with insurance.....holy moly.....I guess Im in wrong line of work....should have been a doctor!! lol Thanks for reading, just wanted to vent a bit!
