Soccermom, I am very sorry to hear of your progressions, hugs to you friend.
Mel I am hugging you to and can empathize about the TV, Movies and commercials being suggestive. Hard to be subjected to on an ongoing basis if you are not feeling it. I am also feeling your overall pain in your life and wish I could take some of that for you. I do think that someone outside of the family to talk to would not be a bad idea who could simply listen as we do without judgment. We all have enough to deal with cancerwise but there is our life day to day, politics, covid etc that add on as well. Whatever you decide to do friend, know we are there. I wish there was something you could do to take you off to a better sleep. Some of your stress has to be related to the long term insomnia you have suffered. Not all, but some. Not sure if CBD gummies or something would help or if your doc would recommend. I used to find those helpful to relax and it did not make me high as there was no THC in it.
I am just going to the store today for a few groceries and some fresh air. Not sure if doing anything with DB today. My nephew had another cold, another negative covid which is good, sounds like they infect each other at work in a small work space. Other than that, watching tv for money, cooking shows, listening to Christmas music for cash and the odd survey. Pretty quiet around here. I did do something comical yesterday though. Should have known better, was mixing up my fabric softener concoction of actual fabric softener, vinegar and decided to put the baking soda in too. Let's just say I had the mentos moment as it all erupted and made a mess on my counter. I surprisingly was not frustrated about it, just went about cleaning it up. I have now changed my routine and will just dissolve the baking soda first pour it in washer, then put around 1/2 cup vinegar and a tiny bit of softener just for some smell. Smells fresh and clean.
