How is it July already??

The year is flying by, and it scares me.

A lot of things scare me nowadays.

Jackson’s favorite YouTuber died from stage 4 cancer, and he’s pretty down about it. I held him this morning while he cried, and he told me it brings up a lot of feelings about my situation, which of course it does. I hate seeing him in pain, but I also know this isn’t something I can fix for him. He has to feel the feelings and work through them. I just hate knowing I can’t fix this for him. I feel…ugh it’s so much. I feel SO MUCH.

It’s Cycle 2, Day 2, and I’m fatigued and slightly nauseated. It’s manageable, and I hope it doesn’t get any worse. I can work with this.

Tomorrow is head shaving day, and I haven’t let myself think about it too much. It’s just something that has to happen. And I know, from experience, that it’s better to do it before the hair actually starts to come out. There will be less pain and less mess this way. Plus, the fam will be with me, in a situation that I control.

A cancer friend of mine is currently in the hospital with pneumonia and the flu. Sues getting her lungs drained today. She’s on an experimental chemo right now, and I’m worried. Her health has declined quite rapidly. I know what this means. She has two young kids. It’s absolutely heartbreaking.

I can’t do this anymore. Not right now.

So I’ll leave you with this question: why is McDonald’s Diet Coke the best Diet Coke?? What do they put in this?

  1. Not sure if McDonalds does this or not, but when I worked somewhere, many moons ago, the Coke, Diet Coke, etc had two components…the syrup and the fizzy water. You could control the syrup to water ratio to suit your personal taste. So, McDonalds probably did a major study at some point in their history and figured out the perfect ratio for their Diet Coke customers. They make the best regular Coke, too. I’m a regular Coke person. 🙂

    As for the rest of the topics in your post, I can’t say anything other than it sucks SO bad. 🙁

  2. I’ve always heard that McDonald’s filters their water before mixing. Also, I heard that they purchase the syrup in metal canisters instead of plastic bags. I don’t know if either of them are true, but you are not wrong about them having it right.
