The December Countdown to 10th Dx Anniversary Begins!

Hello December!
Hello 12.9.19
Hello to The Big Countdown to my 10th Myeloma Diagnois Anniversary!

Most are counting down to Christmas and New Years.
I’m counting down to December 30, my Life Changing 10th anniversary of hearing the word Myeloma. Learning I had 70% Myeloma eating me up alive.

December 30, 2009 forever and ever changed my life…

10 years surviving vicious cancer!
Would have never thought I’d make to my 60th birthday.
Never would have thought I’d beat Myeloma for 10 years.
Never would have thought my body could process all the medical chemicals I put into my body to stay alive.
Yes I think about this daily
Yes I think about being a myeloma cancer patient daily
Yes my thoughts are consumed with my status
Yes medical stuff and illness overshadows EVERYTHING in my life
Yes I’m grateful
Yes I’m pissed
Yes I’m happy some days
Yes I’m angry some days
Yes I am medical miracle
Yes I am beat up, exhausted, fatigued, burnt out, sad, mad and overwhelmed
Yes I am. I am. I am still here and super proud of it.

November birthday girl!
Took 20mg Dex Steroids this morning, instead of the prescribed 40mg. Just want to see if I feel any different today, or if it affects how I process my treatment today, and also want to see if I can beat up Myeloma at a lower steroid dose. Been on 40mg for longer than I remember now… How can my body still be ok on this powerful stuff for 10 years!! 
Off to Velcade soon, be back to upload what I wrote the other day…
Edit or not edit? Post it or not post it?

Did you see my amazing Snow pictures on my last post? So lucky to have made that snow drive. Rarely get out. Was such a treat. So few “good days”…

Julie the “dog whisperer” :))
Hope your day, and holiday festivities are happy and healthy. Stay away from all the cooties my myeloma friends! It’s “germ warfare” out there :((

Thank you for reading and caring as you do!
