I quess I am writing this partly as a question and partly just to vent. I hope you'll bear with me! No one likes to listen to a whiner and I intend to do a little whinning! Remeber I warned you!
The good news is that 20 months post diagnosis and 6 months after switching to Tasigna I have reached a 3 log reduction! Yeah!!
How come my mind says "yippie" but my emotions just aren't celebrating? In fact, I am a little depressed for the first time. Some of the side effects are annoying but I am adapting. To be honest I am a little scared by my lack of memory and ability to focus. I am having difficulty being decisive and articulate at work, both requirements of my position and ones that I used to do effortlessly. I am often dizzy, tired and my eyes burn so bad some days that all I want to do is keep them closed. Reading and writing are also job requirements and my favorite hobbies. I know..whine, whine, whine..
I know I am lucky to have such a great response to tasigna. I know that I will keep going to work and doing all that I do cause I have to.
I don't look like anything is wrong so nothing can be wrong, right??!!
Have any of you felt this way?
Thank you for listening!!
