week 5

I am taking my 5th shot tonight.  I had my 4-week labs taken today and should have the results late next week.  Triple tx is kicking my ***.  I am definitely experiencing a loss of enery and overall fatigue.  I have a dry cough that is more annoying than anything else.  The diarrhea is basically gone and hopefully won't come back.  In fact that seems to have shifted the otherway and the doc has recommended metamusil.  My hiney is still sensitive so I am holding off on that.  I still have some burning and itching in that area.  I notice frequent headaches and this week my appetite has seemed to lessen.  I also think that depression may be setting in and I am more irritable than ususal.  I find one of the best things I can do for myself is to drink lots and lots of water and to eat a basically bland diet.  I am hanging tough and am very anxious to get my blood test results.  Patience has never been my stong suit.  Thanks to everyone for their support.  It surely makes this journey easier.

Our tx seems to be running about the same course. My nausea has subsided a lot. Made a meatloaf w quinoa n salt free ketxhup. I tried ur peanut butter trick-and I'm a big fan of peanut butter n jelly or nutella on anything. I jus can't stomach it. I can't even swallow yogurt, so it's going w my shakes in the morning. The avocado tip was good too. I squirt a lil lime juice.
I'm so glad to hear ur making it at work! Hurry ip w those labs already! Lol! Xo Karen
