Workin' It

It's not uncommon for me to wake up at 5:00 or 5:30 AM and have my mind turn itself on and start working all kinds of problems. They can be work issues, house projects, parenting... Whatever. And often randomly intermixed.

This morning it decided to repeatedly envision the most horrible possible treatment side effects: a severely burned throat that is on fire with pain, and the only way to address the pain is to swallow large pills.

Thanks, Brain.

  1. Indeed, I think this is typical of throat and neck cancers, you will be required to swallow a lot (just imagine a number) of huge pills, even if tumors are pressing on your digestive tract or if the mechanics of swallowing is destroyed as part of the illness or so-called "treatment".
