Vitamin S (sleep)

I think that I have to get a lot of sleep in order to function well.  When I was on Gem/Tax chemo in particular, I remember that it was critically important to get enough sleep.

I had to get up early on Tuesday to get to the doctor's appointment on time, and the entire day was messed up because I was exhausted.  I ended up leaving work at 1:00PM and going home to bed.

So last night, I went to bed at a reasonable hour without setting my alarm.  I woke up at 7:28AM on my own, feeling good.  Really well rested.  So I hope that today goes well.

I was sort of excited yesterday because I got through the entire day without any pain and without any Advil.  But then last night at 2:00AM, I woke up in pain, took three Advil, and went right back to sleep.

Hey, take it easy. Sleep is so important. Don't push things. Rather you be ready and able than just "chugging" along.

Stay well.
