What do you mean it was just a sugar pill!

Hey guys,
Sometimes I think that all the late night reading I do about cancer just make things worse. Has anyone ever just read about their chemo drugs online and become nauseated? lol I read about how you can have chemo brain for up to ten years and I immediately think that its going to happen to me and then I get all stressed out. Now I try to think along the terms maybe it will maybe it won't but if it does I will figure out a way to deal with it.

You need to put those books away and start reading a good novel or magazine! ;) Reading ALL the side effects and anticipating they will ALL happen to you is a FANTASTIC way to drive yourself insane! Trust your doctors if they give you positive news, read about encouraging people who have overcome cancer. Take care, and God bless!
