.....this weekend. Thank you neuropathy.
I have mentioned this before in other threads how I would hate if it happened and this week it did.
On Wednesday I went to a company Christmas lunch. I could have taken the subway but I chose to do the 20 minute walk to get there and then back again because I was told I should aim for 10,000 steps per day. I don't know if it was the cause but that night I couldn't feel the clutch pedal properly while I was driving home and had more than a few episodes that made me uncomfortable. I stayed home on Thursday, drove on Friday again with some episodes and decided on Saturday that I can't drive my beloved blue tank.
I have driven a standard for 40 years. And I absolutely hate that cancer has taken this away from me. For now I can drive an automatic, but now wonder if the neuropathy is going to progress to the point that I can't drive at all.
It's been 3 months since I finished chemo and 10 of 12 were at 75%, why me? My feet still feel like they are in wet sand. All the time.
