Yes – McAlmont and Butler
Today I wake up feeling better than I have for the last week. Better because my intestines are not pleading to get out. And better because my mouth tastes less metallic. I guess the chemo (or to be precise, some of the physiological effect of the chemo) is leaving me. Its always a surprise to me when I emerge from chemo.
“Oh, that’s what normal feels like. In hindsight, then, I really was feeling pretty crap.”
It’s hard to explain, to those who haven’t experienced it, how loathsome chemotherapy is. Necessary, of course, I understand that. Put it this way, they worry about people using painkillers recreationally. I’ve never heard any such concern about chemo.
