Tears are not enough

‘Totally cr*p day today. No need to sugar coat it. I was not ready to give up the pain relief. I had many tears and have had some pain relief back. They are re-instating my feeding tube as I can’t consume enough calories on my own. They want me to eat chocolate bars and crisps and get at least 2000 calories a day – I can’t get near it. On a positive note, Trend helped me to have a shower. Not so strong today, feeling a bit sorry for myself. But that’s how it goes.’ x

Enough said. I will be popping into Starbucks on my way in tomorrow to buy an 800 calorie Signature Hot Chocolate with double whipped cream and marshmallows on top.

    1. When you’re going through shit, just keep going. ‘Driving home for Christmas’ is right around the bend (it might be a blind bend) x


  3. I’m sorry you’re going through this. Hope the pain relief kicks in quickly and the feeds help build up your strength.

  5. Morning Brenda and Trend,
    Sorry you’re feeling rushed, Brenda. It’s still very early days, isn’t it, and there are so many hurdles. But how lovely to hear your own voice on this page – and that you tell it like it is.
    Wrapping you in the most enormous cyber cuddle for this particularly rough patch. xx
