Kicking cancer's ass - day 143

Oops.... the blog Nazi (a.k.a. Hubby) informed me that I missed a day. I realized last night around 11pm that I hadn't posted yesterday, but I was in the middle of a meltdown and didn't really want to share it with everyone right then. I will now.
One of the strangest things has started happening: I get a sudden jittery feeling like I'm going to jump out of my skin. It's not just restless legs syndrome.... although that goes with it. It's restless BODY syndrome. All of the sudden, out of the blue, I can't sit still and I feel like I want to run around the room tearing my hair out. Well, if I had hair.  My arms get restless and my legs get jumpy and I just feel like my body is protesting everything that it has been through.
This happened about two minutes after I turned the lights out and settled into the recliner to go to sleep last night.  I tried to ignore it but it got worse and worse so I eventually went in and woke Hubby up. Not that there was anything he could do (other than hold my hand and talk me down off of the ledge) but misery loves company and all that.  This isn't the first time it's happened, but when it shows up like that, late at night when I'm so tired, it is extremely frustrating.
I eventually took one of my nausea pills that make me sleepy in hopes that I could finally drift off. After a while it worked. This whole thing is a mystery though. I'm not sure if one of my meds is causing this, or if it's some crazy residual thing from my surgery or just another cancer thing.... The gift that keeps on giving.  Whatever it is, I do NOT like it!!!
