This year has been a tough one. So I decided that it was time to grab my man and run off to the beach. Aka my happy place.
There is something about the ocean, and the breeze by the ocean, that really does soothe your soul.
I’m getting close to being half way through my chemo treatment. It’s been easier on me than I thought. I’m so grateful for the amazing oncology nurses and doctors I’ve been blessed with. Even with my good fortune I still needed a place to clear my head. I’m happy to say after my trip, I feel rejuvenated. I’m ready to take this bad boy on again.
Today I took Ray to my treatment. I think it is really easy to forget to look around at the people by your side, and realize how lucky you are. Today I realized I’m a very lucky lady. Love you Ray!
So far taxol (the chemo I’m on now) has been good to me. I feel semi normal. I’m able to work every day, other than treatment days. I really can’t think of any side effects. I have had to learn to rest when your body needs it. I wasn’t good at that at first.
Basically I just wanted to say that when you need a trip to your happy place, book that trip. Life is short. Be happy.
