No cycling or anything else.


 This has been a bad week.

 I have not done any cycling or anything else come to that. I have been so ill that my whole week has been spent in bed. Total fatigue and really ill.

 It has been the worst week I have had since back in last December when it was thought that I wouldn't make it. This past week I didn't think that I was going to make it either.

 The terrible thing is that I wouldn't have cared less. I really felt as if I had lost the will to carry on .......

 Yesterday I was back at the Chemotherapy day ward for another round of toxins. I explained how I had been to the Doctor and we talked everything through and some adjustments were made to my regular daily medication. 

Looking at how fit I was at the top of the Swiss/Italian Alps in the photo at the top of this post I cannot believe that it was me. I would love to feel that fit again but it seems impossible at the moment.....

 Sorry there is not much in this blog post this week but I don't have the energy to write or the clarity of mind due to all the brain fog..... .......

Sorry to hear that you've had a bad week Trevor, lets hope the re balanced medication sorts it out. I guess maybe one way of looking at it is that this is the only really bad week you've had since it all started.

I too look back and see how fit I was up to the end of May, averaging 200 miles per week and now its an effort to walk 2 miles, and I wonder if I will ever get back to that level. Possibly not, but I am desperate to get back to cycling even if I have to lower my expectations a bit.

I have dates for my CT and MRI scans so the balling is rolling for the next bit.

All the best.

I think the fact that this has been my only bad week in almost a year has taken me by surprise. I think that is one of the reasons it pushed my mood so low.... When you look back it comes as a bit of a shock that fitness can drop so far and so quickly.I too have lowered my expectations with my cycling even changing the purpose of each ride (When I do manage to get out)
Pleased that you now have your CT and MRI scans and wish you well with them...

Apologies for the late reply to your blog, I was very sorry to read how difficult things have become and have been thinking of you all week. I hope the changes to your medication are helping and that things are improving. I wish there was more that I could say but just want you to know that we are standing with you as you go through this.

All the best,
