I am in such a drug induced haze....I feel as if I am the subject of a Jimi Hendrix lyric. I had to stop taking the drug Compazine.....just saying the word makes me want to vomit. The side effects are/were unreal. They were supposed to stop nausea...how can it stop nausea when one of it's MANY side effects are blurred vision? Who doesn't get nauseous when experiencing double vision?
IF this post makes sense to one person then I truly have amazed myself. I have done nothing but sleep 18 hours a day for the last 3 days...the urge to close my eyes and sleep where I sit, stand or lay is so intense. I almost fell asleep standing in front of the microwave waiting for my oat meal to cook.
Food another nauseating thought...but I feel weak if I don't eat and then again the vicious cycle of nausea starts again. 3 more drug combo's for this round of treatment and at least the nausea and the fatigue will go away. The last 4 treatments of the chemo drug 'Taxol' (I think) the only side effects of that are, muscle and joint pain....I can handle pain.....I have a high threshold of pain....I'm probably the only woman out there who LOVED labor and delivery....no epidurals for me....get me to 10 cm and one shot of Demerol and I'm good. lol So I'll take the pain over the intense nausea, fatigue and dizziness of the first half of my chemo cocktail.
I just want out of this foggy feeling.........sorry to complain, but I can't seem to stop myself today!
