Sweet chemo dreams

For the record, the dream that woke me up this morning featured me being injected simultaneously with 12 big needles which in my all-knowing dream state I knew to contain 12 different types of virus and disease.

My subsconscious is obviously coping well then...

I'm sorry about your insomnia. I can't imagine how you're coping with that on top of everything else. I've had insomnia since I was a kid, and finally caved in a month ago and got some pills from the doctor. I generally just surf the net when it happens to me, because I get too frustrated otherwise which makes it even harder to sleep. (Do you use a chat program? Sometimes it's nice to connect with people in different time zones when you're the only one awake in your world.)

Set up my own blog today for the first time - I hope it won't upset you but instead make you look forward to your own trip, even if it is somewhat delayed. I'm going to Namibia soon and decided to share my experiences this time. I'll be thinking of you every time I write on it and silently sending you happy thoughts that you will be in Africa soon.

I don't actually get that stressed out about insomnia at the time it happens. I just lie there, bored. And then R wakes up and I end up feeling quilty. This time around, I went to the freezer and started making ice cube bags (sore chemo mouth - had realised earlier I was out of ice - felt like 4am was the best time to do something about it!). I'm very excited for you guys and your Namibia trip - I've always wanted to go there... My sister has just booked her big trip and that incorporates Namibia.... maybe you'll bump into eachother?

Never realised you were an insomniac... Horrid.

Where's your blog? Gotta find it. Have been missing my regular insight into your lives since Steve killed his off... Such a selfish bastard for getting well and no longer having anything to write about :]
