Hey! This sucks! My painful needle just got a bit more painful due to it going into my skinny ass arms so I ice it up and turn on a good song (today was die antword fink you’re freaky) I’m avoiding it in the thigh since my thighs have unfortunately been gathering fluid from my IV. Looking forward to the heaven sent Yanti, my masseuse, who will do some cupping and lymphatic work. Thanks for your help in resolving, really feel like you all still care and are holding on just as much as I am. ALSOOOO I know I’m thin. I’d appreciate less comments on this as They are unnecessary. It’s like when people say to a tall person “whoa you’re really tall” like.. do y’all think they don’t know? #ovariancancer #needles #takecare #ellymayday #inspire #strongwomen
