Hello again,
It's been my third chemo today and altough I'd like to sleep my body seems to be busy absorbing the cocktails I've had earlier.
I could sit on the sofa watch something (I don't really want to see) or catch up on paperwork (something I don't want to do right now) or share some thoughts which came up the other day:
Last Saturday I've been delivering to Tavistock again. Without Cookie (poor her...) but decided to go for a walk to get some fresh air and enjoy the surroundings. And as it's been the Food Festival weekend in Tavistock I tought let's have a look who is there and maybe have a little chat...

Feeling sick: Yes, of course that's what everybody is talking about and I've tried to avoid by eating careful, drinking tea and so on... but actually it only happens when I haven't eaten for a while. For me it means I'm hungry. So it's not about avoiding food it's about eating at least a little bit every now and than. As soon as my stomach is busy it's happy. Don't worry I wouldn't challenge myself but it's a relief to know I can manage it that easy. ...
