Hangover Saturday

Currently undergoing Chemotherapy to treat systemic Ulcerative Colitis as a last measure.


I'm learning that taking Chemo means that I won't be sleeping well that night. Really not sure why but I wake up early and I'm not able to get back to sleep...but all I want to do is lay there.

A friend of mine got me a sponsorship deal with his supplement store a little while back and he told me to come by and explain to him what was going on and we would see if there was anything that he could help me with. We have worked to find different protein and carb powders that don't bother me but this was different.

From the best of what I can understand, the chemo stops ALL cells from replicating and repairing...the good ones and the bad ones. It is also not allowing the ATP Kreb's cycle to take place...or at least it is stopping the cycle somehow someway.

So this had me thinking...if it STOPS the bad cells in my intestines from being bad, MAYBE my body can absorb vitamins and nutrients that it hasn't in years. On top of that, MAYBE it doesn't mean that my body can't absorb just can't use it. To me that sounds like it might can STORE it...or something even if it is just water and carbs and bloat! MAYBE!

Either way, he had me leaving there with a bunch of creatine samples, chromium picolinate, and a few other odds and ends. Then headed to the pharmacy where my cousin got me the meds I need as best as possible. It seems that chemo is really cheap here but the anti-nausea meds are amazingly expensive. Stemetil is the 2nd best option and also very cheap so we got a new box as it seems to help some.

On the way home (my wife made me call every few minutes I drove) my wife told me of a barber shop in our village that she heard was I stopped by there. As soon as I parked the nausea hit me hard. I made it inside and turned white as a sheet. The man asked if I was OK as I sat down in his chair. I explained that I was going through chemo and my hair was already thinning so any ideas on "styles" he had were greatly appreciated. Really freaking impressed with their work!

Then just before I reached my house I ran into either Barbie or Magnum P.I. I'm not for sure which one. If you happen to know...please hit me up here at the Q & A Section because I'm really curious as to which start was in My Hood on Saturday.

Got home...slept till bedtime.
