Might As Well Be Walking on the Sun . ..
Next Lupron shot is scheduled for Tuesday. I am beset with constant hot flashes - so much so the last few days I feel like I might spontaneously combust. And while a summer long Lupronfest is not exactly what I am looking forward to (hot flashes in the Missouri heat and humidity? Can we we say parrrr - TAY!) - saying sayonara to the endo pain and mess isn't completely a bad trade-off. We also scheduled an appt for the same time as the injection to discuss THE next step - which is the hysterectomy in the fall. The thought fills me with a sense of relief that perhaps an end to the pain is in sight - but at the same time it feels like another huge crevice has opened up at my feet. My emotions are in a turmoil - a hot swirling whirl of anxiety, sadness, relief, excitement, discouragement and wanting to just get it over with so I can start getting on with it.
