The Alien Witihn: 12 – Cycles & Bottoms…
The Bottom of the Slump…
Yesterday, I informed my Keyworker of the many and various side effects from my first cocktail cycle.
This morning, first thing, I received a response and information on dealing with some of the more unpleasant of these effects. Impressed I was, to hear from her so promptly, relieved I will be, hopefully!
At least, with this knowledge and the experience of my first cycle, we should be better prepared to deal with the onslaught next time, hopefully.
Another visit to the Day Unit for more Bloods and, of course, to pick up the bits and pieces my Keyworker suggested to assist the discomfort and soften the impact, among other things. Results are as expected and we have no concerns so far, good news!
We are just about approaching half way through Cycle 1 and, I have to say with some caution, I am feeling like the slump has bottomed. All we have to do now is climb the slippery slope back up without any false steps along the way. I hope I have not jinxed progress by stating this…
Cycle 2 has been provisionally booked in for commencement on 17th and we really must make sure this is not compromised.
Short & sweet today I’m afraid, that might even be a good thing?
NEXT: Week 2 – Day 10
