No, it’s not a recap of a horror film. It is a recap of my life as a lab-rat for the last 28 days on the experimental drug Neratinib (HKI-272). The past few weeks have been mostly uneventful from side effects that I can easily attribute to the drug. The side effects from the steroids continue to plague me more than anything else. It’s to the point where I have more frequent bouts of depression and mood swings. Being overweight, still not sleeping more than 5 hours in a row and the muscle weakness really gets me down.
|My daily drugs - 7 types; 13-15 pills. Awesome.|
In the meantime, I am definitely trying to eat less and incorporate healthier choices in my diet. I am reading lots of positive, life-affirming books to try to keep my spirits up. I am working on de-cluttering my closets, working at National PTA, working on not being a pain in the butt to Chris, who god love him, often sees the uglier side of me.
So 28 days later, I am still alive and kicking, so I have that going for me.
