A Ginger Ale and Cracker Type of Day

Yup, it's a Ginger ale, crackers, and type of day today??? I haven't had chemo for almost a month so you' think I'd feel pretty good, well I was until about a week ago, then I started feeling nauseous in the morning. Some days I'd just feel sick...others I'd actually  be sick, enough said. Chemo patients also often, have other stomach issues, like feeling sick isn't enough????
Yesterday I got my new, oral chemo - capecitabine (Xeloda). My other one is 'only' 5 pills a day, this one is 4 pills twice a day. I started yesterday afternoon and immediately dozed on the couch. This morning I was so tired when it was time to get up. I was sick before I even ate or drank anything but made myself a smoothie anyway, it was OK. I'm glad I don't have the nurse or meals coming today, as I am not dressed, nor do I plan to get dressed. I have plans for friday afternoon but I'm not sure if I will feel like it.
I am hoping I will be able to walk and drive again...soon. I really, really miss being able to get into my car and run errands, etc. 
I'm not exactly sure why, but I just don't feel like doing anything.
Wish me luck and that I can hold off cancer and hang on!!!!
