Began Afinitor

I have to take Afinitor every day and today is the fourth day. The
instruction says to wash hands after I handle the drug. That makes me feel this drug is seriously dangerous. It makes sense of why the
people, who have taken the drug already, said to take it putting into
a capsule and with lots of water.
I can take it with or without food, but since it has to be always
at the same time of a day, I decided to take it at 10:30pm with a bit
of banana hoping to avoid nausea.

Mouthwash and gargle are also recommended to prevent mouth sores and infections. I increased the dose of vitamin B, which is effective for the mouth sores, and added vitamin C in my daily supplements. I put
masks into my purse, as well.

To prevent the elevation of glucose and cholesterol level, diet
must be important, but also exercise, too, I think. So I went to a
park this morning to run. I felt good, but pretty soon after, I got
exhausted with muscle ache, and laid down on a couch.
The instruction also says that I should avoid exposure to the sun just
like other chemo drugs, but this time, this warning sounds important
more than any other drugs.

I am very conscious with the side-effects, but adding Afinitor, I am
hopeful, too.

” I cried out to the Lord, and He answered me from his holy mountain.
I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety.
For The Lord was watching over me.
I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies, who surround me on every
side.”–Psalm 3:4-6

I ‘ m ready to fight again this year with the Lord, who promised me
never to be forsaken.
