hi all. i wanted to say i finished chemo last thurs. that was possibly the longest 6 months of my life, but it's over now and i'm happy i didn't quit. one of my main problems with chemo was lack of sleep. doc said it was a combination of chemo and anxiety, but i never slept more than an hour at any one time. he perscribed ambien for sleep, and it made a great difference. i could sleep 4 hours, wake up refreshed and determined instead of sick and tired. if any of you are having the same problem, might be worth a try. you can face everything with a better and more positive attitude if you get some sleep.
