The Waiting is the Hardest Part
It has been a month since I had my end of treatment visit. We did not have a big talk. In many ways, it was a long time coming and chemotherapy was definitely taking its toll on me in a lot of little ways. But the thing about getting it is that you feel like you are actively doing something. Intellectually I know that is faulty thinking. It is certainly true that I have been pretty beat up by chemo this past year and a half, and a break in that has been a long time coming. People ask me if it is fatiguing, and I really can't say with certainty. But the fact of the matter is that when you finish, all there is left to do is wait, and that is very hard indeed.
