After some intense Google searching, I read many blogs that ranted about the flu symptoms. Then I read statistics that reported 20% won't get the flu-like stuff, 60% will struggle through it week to week, and the remaining 20% get it so severely they have to stop treatment all together. Ew. I hope to stay out of that last group and remain in that former 20%. God willing...
So what did happen?
- Some fatigue, usually when I needed to eat. But I don't have an appetite. Weirdest thing. So, I don't feel hungry, which means I'm learning to stay mindful of the last time I ate. I am trying to do a better job listening to my body (All this self-care doesn't come naturally to me!).
- Some shortness of breath, usually soon after an oral dosing.
- As of this evening, a low grade fever.
- And as early as Day 3, an itchy rash! Boo. This inconvenient rash enjoys dicovering new areas to grow, spread - and itch!
Tomorrow is injection #2! I'll report back later on its effects (if any)!
So...the time you spent reading this blog is time you could have spent elsewhere. I consider your time a gift. THANK YOU!
