Y’all. I am the worst at being a pothead. I am scared of the vape pen and I don’t think I’m doing it correctly. I might try a tiny bit of a gummy tonight instead of the melatonin gummies I’ve been doing on nights 4-14 of my 14-day chemo cycle (the first three nights I take a drug that knocks me right out).
Anyway, I don’t know that vaping is going to work for me, and I just don’t know that vaping is even the right thing to do - especially with all of the warnings out there about vaping anyway.
Also, the papaya thing. Nope. Not going to be doing fresh-cut papaya anymore either. I cut up that stinky thing and added pineapple and grapes and squeezed a lemon over all of it to make a really pretty fruit salad and when I sat down to eat it the papaya made me gag, hard. I’m trying to avoid throwing up as best I can, so the papaya is not going to cut it for me.
So I bought some papaya extract tabs at the health food market and will try those out to see if my platelets bounce back. I got several responses from my FB cancer group when I asked about how to get platelet count back up, and several people (unprompted) said to try the papaya extract tabs - that they’ve seen amazing success with them. One noter told me that her husband’s extremely low platelet count bounced back in a week!
Bob and weave. Change course. Be flexible. Try it all and then roll with what works. Don’t give up. Keep figuring this out.
This is my life right now.
