How Far I've Come

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


Last night I was sitting at my computer, sad and depressed. Every Thursday I start to feel "better" because the chemo is getting out of my body a good bit by then but it hits me...tomorrow is my day. Imagine if every Thursday you knew that on Friday someone was just going to walk up out of the blue and kick you straight in the balls. That is how I feel.

I should be celebrating that I feel good on Thursdays but I'm sad because Friday is almost here and that is when I take my next 3 doses.

Goofing around on Facebook I thumb through a bunch of old pictures and I run back to one of me from February of this year and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I am in Hell and I feel like Hell right now BUT I am so much better now than I was 8 months ago. I showed this picture to a friend of mine and they commented that the photo on the left looks like it belongs to a dead person.

I guess it belonged to someone that was dying.
