I woke about 2:30 this morning. Hard to sleep with intense pain in my head.
Sometimes, after taking my medication for the pain, I can go back to sleep ~ not so much this time.
During the day it’s easy to feel my having cancer as surreal. I’m in a routine with work and errands, chores and basic living.
But in the dark, in the deep silence of the early morning, there’s nothing to distract me. And to find that small crimson color of blood after going to the bathroom is quite the reminder that my body really does have something serious going on.
As I lay in the dark, I felt a twinge on the left side of my body ~ was that my fallopian tube speaking to me or my uterus? or maybe it was just gas.
