I've been back at work (at home) for a little while now. I found it tiring to be back at first and not just because I don't sleep well I guess, but that's wearing off now.
Work is still being great, they're letting me ease back into things at my own pace and I really appreciate that.
I completed my course of antibiotics and currently have no symptoms so I'm guessing that went ok. I got my appetite back a couple of days after starting them, which was annoying because I had to take the pills 4 times a day, on an empty stomach - specifically at least an hour before a meal or at least 2 hours after a meal. I was so busy obsessing all the time about when the next pill should be taken that I forgot my antidepressants quite frequently during the week, and my mental health did suffer. I was doomscrolling the news and wondering whether it was really worth trying to fight to stay alive (if I need further treatment) when the whole world is going to hell at one point! However, realising that I was skipping doses and getting myself back on them properly made an almost immediate difference (the world is still going to hell, don't get me wrong, they aren't miracle workers)
I've just been looking at some very gentle yoga videos aimed at people who've had breast cancer surgery. Some so gentle they reckon they can be done with drains in, not that I ever felt like trying that. I know that it will help me to give it a try - not just by increasing the amount of very gentle stretching going on, but also by making me take care of my body and be mindful at the same time. Maybe it will also help me get back into meditation, as I've completely fallen off the wagon then laid in the road watching the wagon drive over over a big hill since diagnosis instead of turning it to help me cope. Anyway, not much actual news or updates for today, but I guess every week can't be huge strides forward.
PS still waiting for the results of my oncotyping, hope the samples didn't get tossed overboard in the middle of the Atlantic...
