It's such a huge corner to turn when treatment is over. The energy and vitality of life slowly creep back in. Every day I notice something new:
No blisters in the sun.
No constant itching.
No stray hairs flying all over the house, car, etc.
Body only aches after exercise.
Food tastes good.
Crying doesn't occur every hour.
Fear is dimishing.
Money isn't all going to specialty pharmacy.
Reading is easier.
Thinking is clearer.
Anemia side effects are ALL gone.
There are things that my body is still trying to adjust to. It will take more time.
Living with cirhossis has taken a lot of mental energy. Denial comes off slowly.
Being with my family and spending a lot of time outdoors has proven to be a great healer for me.
I'm glad the journal is here. It's hard to remember what I went through.
