Sea gooseberries on the beach, jellyfish in UK seas

This is a very short no frills post about how I feel right now.

I had chemotherapy this week.

It feels like someone turned up gravity. Everything is heavier, everything is more difficult.

My brain has been squashed and feels like it is only maintaining the minimum of cognitive function.

I feel stripped bare. Like a beach when the sea has gone out and all that is left is desolate wet sand and debris.

But like the beach I know that the sea will return with all the vigour and life that comes with it. This is why it is worth it!

Having been diagnosed, treated and almost cured of lung cancer I feel the need to record some of my thoughts. This is not a self help site there will be no advice on cancer related matters just my thoughts.
