People are a good distraction...
You were right UC! Last week my big sis was here - on the wkend my bro popped in for a visit. At my lowest points, people are the best distraction.
I think I’ve made it pretty clear that chemo week sucks like nothing else and this is the time where having people around that you like is a necessity.
My sis is awesome - she came, she cooked, she looked after the kids, she looked after me. She’s a very generous and fun person and always great to have around. My bro came also - he’s funny, caring, we had a little bday celebration for him and for the first time he said I looked sick! I think he’s been waiting to see it 😉
And it’s very true. I did look sick, I was sick, he caught me during a bad period which I don’t think is ending - I’ll come back to that at another time.
I have two friends o/s that are keeping in touch throughout this and one awesome one here who touches base often and shares photos of her kids and all the shenanigans she gets up to (which is plenty) for my entertainment. Otherwise it’s family and a big one at that. I’m the most fortunate person to be a part of my family - they are all very special. My siblings, however, well they are something else - it’s pretty hard to explain what kind of people they are for fear of understating it. They have to double up as my friends and they do a good job of it, especially during times like this.
Someone said to me, you learn who your true friends are when life turns to shit. Hopefully you learn who your true friends are well before that happens and they remain your true friends for life. Got mine in the bag thanks and they are some of the best 😊
