PROJECT: 05-DJC:174.9

This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February ...in the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

(Partially) Sleepless in Concord

Another sleepless night. Well, partially sleepless. It was about midnight when I got up with a start. I had to head in to the bathroom to vomit a bit. Just a little bit. Then back out to bed. Couldn't sleep much after that.
Lots of times I feel like there is a hand tightening around my throat. I used to think it was because of the collar of the shirt I was wearing, but I get that feeling whether or not I am wearing a collar.
The medical team tells me I am going to stop menstruating while on chemotherapy. Well it's not this month! Hello! This is the heaviest period I have ever had.
I spend a lot of time in bed trying not to wake Mark up. Impossible. He sleeps so lightly. I wish I were a quieter person. I'll bet he does, too.
