reduction



Is done, 6 to go!  WOW!  I'm really gettin' short now!  Freaky.

Have been a good girl and adhered to my dose reduction.  I am noticing a difference and to be quite honest if I had stayed falling the way I was I would have not made it through the last week of work.  All hell broke out and there's more to come.

I have mixed feelings about that actually.  The way I see it tx is not forever and I was committed to going hard the whole way, despite how difficult it got. I keep thinking that my health is more important than my job because without the health I won't be working anyway, but in this economic climate even I have the fear of losing my job esp if not performing at full speed, which I'm not...  So on one hand I'm pissed that I've had to reduce but on the other I am grateful that I have been more able to perform at work.  Sigh, Catch 22.

Had a haircut today.  No longer have long hair.  Would now call it shoulder length.  Not sure how I feel about that.  It physically feels lighter, and more healthy but I don't know how it looks as I'm avoiding the mirror...  My mum always says the difference between a good haircut and a bad haircut is a week so I'll see how I feel in a few more days.  At least all the nasty skinny dry bits that were driving me nuts have gone and can't tickle my skin anymore...

Have a CBC scheduled for Wednesday, interested to see if Hb is rising...

6 shots to go, 6 shots to go, hey ho, the derry-oh, 6 shots to go....

I will be following your CBC report for your hb counts.  Mine is dropping quickly also and fear the Riba reduction.  Oh well we have to do it .

I am so excited to see you will be done soon.  If you can do it, we can too.  Can't wait to see your last shot post!
