I haven't posted in a while. As of late August my disease is still stable!! Thankful for that. Still doing Doxil ever 4 weeks (except most treatments are delayed because of low platelets). Last treatment was 10/16. I see my dr. this upcoming Wednesday. Ladies I am SO fatigued. I am angry because I feel like doing is resting after working part time.
I have so much to be thankful for that I should not be whining, but I am. I am finally fulfilling my life time dream of teaching. I am teaching Tech Tot classes and Leggo club classes in private schools/day cares. I LOVE my job. I have 3 kids for 30 minute classes, ages 2-6. Of course, I group the kids by their ages as much as possible. The Leggo club is after school for grades 1-4. These require 2-3 teachers as there as so many kids. By the way, I had no idea that leggos could be robiotic. :) The pay is really good and I will be basically making the maximum I am allowed on disability.
Here's the schedule, which I think is causing the fatigue:
Monday a.m. 4 tech tot classes 9:00-11:00 p.m. 3:00-4:30 Leggo club
Tuesday a.m. 2 tech tot classes 10:00-11:00 p.m. 3:00-4:30 Leggo club
Wednesday Leggo club 2:15-2:45 2:50-3:15 tech tot class (same school)
Thursday Tech tot classes 9:45-10:54 and 11:45-12: 45 These two schools are about 25 minute drive from me. Thurs. afternoon 3:15-4:45 tech tot classes.
We are off on Fridays except once per month we have a staff meeting for 2 hours where we also pick up our new curriculum for the next month. I absolultey love my job, especially the tech tot classes. Through various means I am teaching tech skills and K and 1st grade readiness skills. I love my kids.
My problem is that by the time I"m in and out, loading and unloading my stuff for 4 days I'm too tired to do anything for fun. I am absolutely exhausted. I could cut back, but I really need the income.
I think I will talk about it with my doctor Wed. and my boss very soon. I may have to give up a day, which I would prefer to give up Thursday if it comes to that so I would have an extra day.
I hope all you ladies are doing well. I hate it when I get in these "funks." I am teaching 17 classes per week (Mon-Thurs.)
Thanks for allowing a safe place to vent.
