My second post to beckyofwinchester.com October Squares challenge.
On Tuesday afternoon I finished my second last round of treatment for the follicular lymphoma a chronic blood condition that was diagnosed earlier this wonderful year. The post-treatment brain fog and listlessness usually only lasts for a few days but this time it hung around into the weekend, the energy that I had experienced last week was long gone.
On Saturday morning, I decided to take a bush walk down to the river on the farm’s western boundary. I often find that I can push myself through these bouts of listlessness and feel energised just to be outdoors.
The walk down was beautiful, lots of birds and wildflowers out after the rain and too early in the day for snakes. Sometimes we have to be cruel to be kind to our bodies and give ourselves a push out the door.
