A challenging experience

On a Facebook support support page my replies to a question :

Currently in radiation treatment and on steroids and keppra plus others. Surgery 5.2014 with r GBM 9/2015 .

I spend time just having to think how to do the next thing. Any thing. Shoes. Bathroom. Getting out of bed. Every step is a new step and requires an internal assist,step solid. Walk normal. That every one thing that was easy yesterday is that much harder today. Even easy last hour can become harder the next hour. Likely his focus is on the next thing. I speak in directives in part because I feel that a bark get action. If I have to explain one more time that I really prefer a certain fork and HATE the one they gave me I feel so frustrated and ungrateful. It is OUR struggle to figure out each new way of approaching getting it taken care of. I'm praying for you to be as strong as you need to be. Of course you didn't want any of this but taking care of yourself- enlisting others - controlling what you can .Do what you are able. Go for it! all IMHO given my life experience to date.

after sleeping I added to the message:

Beverly Holmes Hughes over looked the mouth part. It is a huge thing. Michael Jordan had it right the tongue IS part the go system. I've noticed that I walk with my mouth open and my tongue does rub on my teeth. that is drying. lozenges and mint flavor burns more than helps. having s dry mouth changes flavor and the ability to chew properly . until the rough raw feeling is fixed or lessened it is another distraction, drawing attention from other things. Soft food helped but that gets boring. Oyster crackers in the soup provide texture and are easier to eat for example.
