You can imagine what the prospect of pain in my hands does to me.
Second order effects of all this include excessive sleeping, due to both the pain and the rather alarming amount of Ibuprofen I am now taking under doctor's orders. Excessive sleep makes me logey and cuts into my exercise time (though I did fine this morning), which, when combined with the irregular food habits of travel, means I'm putting on weight beyond my normal baseline range.
All in all, this is not made of win.
It's also perfectly solvable. I just need to be more diligent about exercise and eating, and, more to the point, stay ahead of the shoulder problems. But grr. Frankly, this is more of a pain in the neck on a day-to-day basis than the cancer has been.
Updates as conditions warrant. In the mean time, carry on.
