As you all know, I am currently awaiting my radiotherapy, which starts on Wednesday 22nd May. I am currently in a state of hypothyroidism, on an awful low-iodine diet and feeling more poorly by the day.
I am frankly, exhausted, and I still have another week to go. I have no energy and I can't sleep at night. I feel a lot like I did when I was anaemic and needed a blood transfusion. I'm very weepy and cry at the silliest of things.
In summary, I feel... Weak.
In body, mind and spirit today. I just feel weak.
Whilst the quote I have chosen for #WednesdayWords, doesn't quite sum up how I feel, I guess it will sum up the test I am facing.
I need to find some courage.
“Courage isn't having the strength to go on - it is going on when you don't have strength.”
