Recently, pilule I have been napping more. I don’t think it is anything serious, but just due to so much of a toxic substance being in my system right now combined with the added weight I’m carrying. Treatment is a bit of a burden on my life, but I’m focused on positive thinking and healthy living.
As I take dexamethasone (steroid) and cyclophosphamide (chemotherapy) each week (10 pills with breakfast), I take a self-portrait that illustrates the particular week of treatment it is. Not only is it my 1st week of Cycle 4, it is my 16th week in total. Each cycle is five weeks long and I will have 6 cycles in total.
I took this photo earlier in the week. It was in the afternoon and I went to one of my favourite forests on campus to relax and photoshoot. I absolutely love the nature at UBC. During these dark times I have found it helpful for my health to focus on the happy moments that brighten my day.
