July 18th – The Daily Affirmation



I feel so much better today! After my nightmare chemo day I only got one hour of sleep overnight, so I was a bit of a basket case yesterday. At least yesterday’s treatment went smoothly!

I spoke to the pharmacist yesterday at the treatment center about the Ambien that she prescribed. The instructions for dosing by the Rite Aid indicated that I should take this before bed, yet the indications noted on the side reads,”Take on an empty stomach.” What? A conundrum? Sorry, but I usually am ready for bed a few hours after having dinner. The pharmacist indicated I should take this about 6 hours after eating dinner. OK, who in their later 50’s can stay up until midnight? I have not been able to do that for years! 8:40 p.m., time for night, night!

Anyway, I am still tired today, but the good news is that I slept for 5 hours. So, a total of 6 hours of sleep over the last 2 days. This is 2 hours less than I slept over the last two treatments. Hopefully naps will be part of my day today!

With that, I decided that no matter what, today I will sparkle! It’s a good day for it!

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a wonderful Friday!

Hugs and be well!
