I am not sorry THAT week is over. For reasons that I do not completely understand this week has been, erm, interesting.
The initial side effects were much like they have been all along. Nausea still under control, phew. But the rest – the aches, the sweating, the hot flushes, indigestion, bloating, general unwellness – they were all magnified. And as for the fatigue. Oh. My. There was a point on Sunday when I was eating lunch and my jaw was just too tired to keep working. And I was eating soup.
However, what has been a lot more interesting has been my rate of recovery. This time in cycle 2 I was still feeling pretty rubbish. Currently I am definitely tired. I fall asleep a lot. I am low on stamina. But I made it to the Becoming Bendy class yesterday. And generally I feel pretty well.
On the whole I would say this is a good thing. I’ll take more intense side effects for a shorter period. Of course, it could all change next month, but for now, this is good.
