First day back to work

Today was the most difficult morning thus far for side effects. I woke up feeling exhausted, despite sleeping over 10 hours. I crawled out of bed to eat a handful of saltines, took my anti-nausea meds and laid back down. After about 30 minutes of lying awake, I got up and took a shower. The nausea took complete control after I got out of the shower.

My head was extremely congested most of the day- it eased up as I drank more water. My coworkers were very supportive, but it was difficult to get back into the swing of things.

  3. Hi Bill,
    I know that you sometimes feel like an invincible bull who can do anything. So this must feel like such a setback to you. . . BUT, this is only temporary and you WILL be back to normal. Keep your chin up and do the best you can!
