Today has not been one of my better days.
I woke up with tummy ache (probably a combination of constipation, impending/suspending periods and eating too much) which by mid afternoon had turned into a mild headache and total fatigue, with the consequence that I feel like a whale and I have been and still am in an awfully bad mood.
Also, I am having to breathe through my mouth to get enough air! I really can't figure out what my body is doing today.
On the up side, the Cat called me this afternoon. See, the moment I found out I had cancer, I had a list of people whom I had to inform about this. He was obviously one of them.
In fact, the morning after my biopsy results confirmed the lump was malignant, I was in his office breaking news that I myself had difficulty grasping. I guess one of the reasons I wanted to see him was because he is familiar with this disease. And at that point in time, I was only a beginner in cancerish. I badly needed a crash course on cancer.
Now, the Cat is a busy bee and when a busy bee takes time away from the beehive to check on me, I feel particularly good.
And that's something I am learning to apply myself. Towards others.
One quick sms, a one-line email or one phone call is sometimes all it takes to make someone feel good.
Ain't that just fabulous?
