I have been home now for a little over three weeks. I am still experiencing fairly intense fatigue, but it is better. I feel queasy almost all the time, but that is better than true nausea. I am suffering from dry mouth and things still don’t taste right, but fewer things.
One of the good signs is that I am starting to be a little bored. When I was feeling terrible I wasn’t bored at all. I am tired of being bald with stubble. When I didn’t feel well I truly didn’t give a shit. I am annoyed putting on mascara because I have fewer eyelashes than I did before plus I need to use a little brow liner. Again, when I was feeling gross I didn’t care that I didn’t look so great. And I am more than ready to eat outside of my house – really ready. Did I say I was ready?
So the fact that I am getting nudgy, bored and feeling ugly is a good thing – it means I am feeling better!
And the better news for me is that I have less than two weeks before almost all the food restrictions are lifted and I can venture into uncrowded restaurants. I will still have to be very careful about staying away from sick people and continue to work on building my strength and endurance and I hope the queasiness ends soon.
