I want to do all the things!

Dearest Liver,

I’m so sorry for the break in blogging. It’s a little funny that my last post on here was about being a newly enthusiastic blogger and then I stopped blogging for a while. I started a few posts, but never quite finished them.

I have been taking the new drugs for a few months now and I started to feel like a real person again in April. It is amazing and I found myself wanting to do all the things that people asked me to do. Not to say that I was going super crazy, but after feeling sick non-stop for 6 months, I was all about dinner with friends and birthday celebrations and anything else that sounded fun. I even went to Mexico and it was amazing!!

It was also exhausting. I could feel the minute that my body wanted to go home and lay down, but somehow my brain just wouldn’t agree. I wanted just a few more minutes, which usually turned into a few more hours… It’s so hard to rationalize going home and sitting down when that’s essentially all you did for 6 months!

Happily, I feel like I’ve finally found the balance. I caught up with friends and now feel like a real member of society again. What a glorious feeling! I have no idea how long this drug cocktail will work, so I’m going to take the advice of my cancer ass-whooping coach aka, my amazing oncology NP, Sheila, and live it up while I’m feeling good.

Life is short, and even shorter for some of us, there isn’t time to waste! Live it up while you can and do ALL the things!

Love and kisses,

Robin

p.s. Thank you to my amazing friends that helped welcome me back to the world of the “normal people” and hung out with me. I love you all so much!
