Yesterday was an odd day for me. I felt completely and utterly wrecked. I simply couldn’t keep my eyes open and felt incredibly achy. I put the aching down to exercise. I had done Davina Intense DVD which focuses on HITT training, which means it is all very short and fast. But I did think it really odd that I felt that tired. I knew something wasn’t right so I tried to go with the flow and tried to relax a lot more. The problem was I really wanted to sleep and I kept dropping off but felt that I really should stay awake, so felt worse for it! Last night after tea I went straight to bed. I was asleep by 8.30pm! This is so unlike me! I slept heavily but with lots o dreams last night and eventually dragged myself out of bed this morning. I do feel much better but I have to be honest I could probably sleep all day today! I have clients today though and I am sure getting moving and doing something will make me feel much better and less lethargic. I felt a bit like I was coming down with a sore throat but I now feel much better. Phew… Maybe I have been feeling a little bit low this week and that would explain why I wasn’t bouncing around with joy when I got my scan results. I thought it was odd for me as I love any good news but I really felt disappointed for some reason. I think it’s because I can’t ever imagine the docs at the hospital saying I can stop taking chemo. I’m not sure why that bothers me? It is just like any other chronic disease like diabetes. Diabetics take meds for the whole of their lives and live well. I too can live this way. I just get the feeling when I am with the docs that they look at me like I am timer, and all the sand is running out. I don’t feel like that with Dr Nesselhut in Germany.
I sent my scan results to Prof Dalgliesh and Dr Nesselhut but am yet to get a reply. I really need Dr Nesselhut to tell me what happens next. I need to book time out and get all the hotels etc sorted.
I have today been looking into Medichecks again. They do testing for all sorts of medical issues. I am interested in learning my IGF-1 levels. IGF-1 is a growth hormone that we all have. Apparently if you have high levels it can mean you are at risk of canSer. I’d like to know if mine are true. Also if you do the fasting diet, this is where you have two days at 500 calories and the rest of the time a normal healthy diet that the IGF-1 levels can lower. This is very quite exciting. I’m not considering the diet as I like food too much. As well as this I would like to know how well my liver, kidneys etc are all functioning. Anything I can do to improve my physical state.
I have an afternoon full of clients and the sun is shining… Today is a good day. Let’s hope the weather starts improving as I could really do with some vitamin d. I am guessing this could be having an effect on my energy levels too……
