Message of the day: TAKE ACTION as told by Genevieve.

I had migraine last night. So, I asked Gen to help me fix my stiff jaw and neck. She didn’t just fix my migraine, she made me realise that I had a LOCKED JAW. I forgot that my mouth can open that big lol. No wonder I struggle trying to put food in my mouth and I had ulcers inside my cheek because I kept biting it.

But who on earth would have a locked jaw and have no clue? Hahaha. I never had one but now I know lol.

There is always PEACE within even when there is chaos around you …if you open your HEART long enough to feel LOVE and BREATHE deep enough to feel LIFE.

Who will you share your LOVE with?

I’ll be sharing mine with everyone esp my mum! She’ll arrive on 1st July & staying til 27th! 😀 YAY!

LOVE will take you a long way. When cancer hits it is important to reach out to your support network as you will be incapable of doing a lot of things. I don’t like to say this because I love what I do but it will affect my capacity to work as well.

It’s not just about your health. It is also about your finance and planning what to do if you are off work for so long. It is about family planning because it will affect your fertility. It is about your relationship because your partner now suddenly has to take on role as carer on top of that too. But most importantly, it is also about your state of mind and kindness of your heart.

When you are diagnosed with cancer: EAT UP BEFORE CHEMO STARTS.

In the lead up to treatment, my friend suggested the above. I am glad I took the advice.

Look at the pic below, is it just me or can you see me looking thinner? I am not sure the exact weight as they weigh me with clothes on at the hospital and I was 64 I joked that I have a lot of layer, sure I am only 63. Yesterday, when I weigh I was on 59.5. I lost about 3 kg since I started 2 weeks ago.

I am getting my good days but with ulcers on the way I don’t know if I can up 3kg in 8 days. If I lost 3kg every round I’ll be so skinny! I still have 13 rounds to go. (I take it back those days when I said I wanted to be skinny lol). I hope my body adjust to the pain along the way and I won’t lose so much weight.

What will you CELEBRATE today?

I stayed up til 11.30 last night and 12.30 the night before! 🙂 Good days are coming…woo hoo!

For the first time , I was able to cook. So, I cooked for Kim on the weekend. Chemo is not just though on you but also your partner. Your partner also need care for going through cancer. So, we have to make sure he/she also has all the support and caring needed too 🙂

I just realised I lost about 2-3kg during this process so far. I have to up my body weight before my next round now that I am feeling so much better.

What will you NOT take for granted today?

I feel like I’m having a preview of my old age. In a way, it is a blessing because I have the advanced knowledge and I’d know what to do when I really am older and frail. Those oldies are champs for doing all the things they do because I know it takes a lot even just to do a walk in the park.

It makes me realise we take a lot of things for granted.
