All I did was take good care of myself and was kind to myself. I am a very driven person and my wise surgeon gave me the advise to "Ride the Wave". That has become my personal mantra. When I was going through treatment, if I felt tired, I took a nap. If someone offered help, I accepted it even if I didn't think I needed it. If I felt like eating something, I did. I treated myself to a special blanket and good smelling shampoo. These are things I usually wouldn't do.
I know there are lots of people who change their diets or take supplements and herbs. I just felt like the chemo was already doing so much to my body, I didn't want to add or subtract anything else. I never really had a poor diet to begin with so I didn't see a point of changing. In fact, there was a week during treatment that all I wanted was chicken McNuggets and so I got them.
I guess what I am saying is that I tried not to fight the process and more rolled with it. I am a very active person and I tried so hard to keep it up but I just couldn't. I would feel worse by trying to so I listened to my body and took a break. It was hard to do at first but I think it was best.
I wish you patience during your journey and best wishes.
