    Not having a good day. I'm fighting depression and anxiety. I had my blood tested last week to see if my Hypothyroidism balance is off. I've been having hot flashes lately too. I've been taking depression meds but made appt to see my regular dr this week to change to something different. Today I'm in pain from my severe bulging disk in my neck that's inoperable because surgery requires going through the front of your neck. This isn't possible being a Laryngectomy and all the staples I have holding everything together. I over did myself yesterday. I'm trying so hard to be back to as normal as possible. Doing house chores, cooking dinner, doing laundry. Today I feel the effects of over doing it yesterday. I'm very frustrated and disappointed in myself today for feeling down and being in pain. I can't shut the waterfall of tears off today. I have a counseling appointment tomorrow. Least to say I didn't get anything done but made a few phone calls. Hoping tomorrow is a better day. Sigh. I will try my best again tomorrow.

      Sorry you're having a down day. It's expected and normal to have these days. Don't be hard on yourself it's expected to not be able to do as much as we used to. this is my third time dealing with cancer and after each one I've found that I'm just not able to do as much as I used to. I wish you a better day tomorrow.

    I don't get on this website much. I missed Whiney Wednesday yesterday. Today is my Wednesday. I can't seem to manage my pain management after cancer treatment and radiation damage and Thyroid effects. I can barely walk today but I'm taking all the usual pills I take everyday so I don't understand why I feel so rotten today and yesterday. I hate having set backs where Im not able to enjoy things like going motorcycle riding with my fiance because I feel so bad. Venting on the wrong day. Sorry
