Hello, welcome back to my blog this week and I hope you have all had a good week. So how’s my week been?
Good question, it’s been a mixed bag really. Starting from Tuesday, continuing from the last blog post, we went to the Running Bear Shop and had a great time. But inside the shop a reminder occurred, the doctor rang. Nothing new was said, it just reminded me that I have cancer and that destroyed me. I cried that night, the realisation that this can kill me hit. I’m not scared, just mentally delicate.
So Wednesday, I went out with my family. We went to an escape room and then out for afternoon tea, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. But I felt like I had a dark cloud over my head. Its just hard, I get tired faster and I’m not allowed to bend down, I couldn’t do most of it due to these restrictions but I still enjoyed it. Afternoon tea was also nice afterwards.
Thursday, I saw a friend and we had a good time. He’s always been a great friend and I don’t know what I’d do without him.
Friday. Now, this is difficult, I felt tired – slept most of the day- and sick, depressed, and just awful. I felt like I was on death’s door but now I feel fine. Waking up with a headache in the middle of the night isn’t quite my idea of fun. But a few painkillers and I dropped right back off to sleep.
Saturday, I went out into Town and had a drink with my Twin brother. Loved it so much, it’s just nice to talk. Side note, he’s the one running 5k everyday during my radiotherapy and you can donate here: www.justgiving.com/alexpullan
Today, we’re back on lock down restrictions, unfortunately.
Next week I have a busy week. Tuesday I have an MRI Spectral scan to look for any cancer cells, Wednesday its radiotherapy planning and mask fitting and Friday I get to see the Occupational Therapist.
Thank you for reading this week’s blog post, I hope you have a good week.
