Lingering after effects of chemo that will take a long time to go away: I hate popsicles. When I was getting chemo drugs, I had to eat something cold. It reduces blood circulation in the mouth and reduces the likelihood of mouth sores. At first I would do popsicles or lemon ice. But the chemo also makes me feel sick. So I've come to associate them with nausea.
I don't really much care except that Adam LOVES popsicles and buys them when he's home. They're always in the freezer. I finally asked him if he could not eat them in front of me. I don't mind that he has them, and can ignore them, but the sight of them---ick.
On the good side, every time I slipped on my chemo schedule, every day after two weeks I felt almost exponentially better. So by this weekend, I should feel absolutely great. I don't think I really know what it means to feel good anymore (I think I feel pretty good now, even though I have some mild neuropathy and get tired walking around the block.) I can't imagine what it will feel like to be so much better. I'll wander around like I'm drunk.
