I had my 8th treatment of perjeta and herceptin about two weeks ago and it definitely took a toll on my body and mind. Since I had a couple of weeks off from treatment to recover from surgery, my body has been readjusting.
Honestly, my mind has taken the biggest hit. My skin broke out really badly again since this last treatment. I’ve been struggling a lot, especially the past few days, to stay positive and man it has been a war. There has been a war in my mind and goodness has it been a tough battle.
I’m writing this as I’m in the car on my way to the gym (don’t worry I’m not driving.) I’ve been taking steps to be productive and move forward, and working out is one of the things in life that makes my body and mind feel good. So here I go, continuing to move forward and look for the good in the world.
I feel like it’s so important to be honest with myself and accept my feelings as they are, so I felt like being honest with you.
Thank you always for your love and support
