Getting out for a bit

I went out with some friends for a bit last night. It was good to leave the house and get some fresh air. The weather was beautiful. I was worn out by 10, even though we didn't do much but eat and sit and talk.
I slept well last night. Most of my side effects are gone except for dry mouth and lips, slight headaches (not near as bad as they were) and lack of energy.

Today I am going to go grocery shopping and to pick up prescriptions. This seems daunting to me. Funny how such small things take so much effort now. I used to get up at 6 in the morning, work all day, then run errands and do housework and still have energy at the end of the evening. I know I will work my way back up to that, but its frustrating in the mean time.

I am grateful that I have the time to recover. If I still had a job, I would be going back soon, and I am not ready. My body is still healing, I just hope it hurries.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!!
