and now -

I do so want to feel well. It is so disheartening to feel so lousy, and I know the heart is courage, so keep it up, and, well, I read this little gem from this web-site:

http://www.portfolio.mvm.ed.ac.uk/studentwebs/session2/group13/taxol.html -

"Taxol is a new anticancer drug that is isolated from taxine, a complex of alkaloids, a natural toxin that causes poisoning by being rapidly absorbed from the digestive tract and interferes with heart action (Feldman et al, 1987). It was found in the stembark of the Pacific yew tree, Taxus brevifolia, found in the north-west Pacific coastal region of the USA, a poisonous, non-resinous evergreen that grows to approximately 50 feet tall. Discovered in 1967 when its antitumour activity against a variety of rodent tumours was noted, its unique mechanism of action led to the development of a new class of chemotherapeutic agents called taxanes."

No wonder my heart is so affected and I feel so achy. When I go to take my shower, and feel I achy I am and see how my feet look, I decide a bath is in order, so I soak softly in the tub, and then, shower, and now, try and muster energy for this day. I want to feel well, and I sit now with how I am, just being, and knowing therein, a shift will come, somewhere, sometime, my way.
