ok i am still new with this but had my second chemo treatment 6 days ago and i got a whole lot of different reations then i did the first time. veen having to go back to the hospital for a tranfusion because i could not do a thing i have renal cell they also were telling me at the hospital that their really is not a cure or chemo treatment for this. also was wondering if anybody knows an easy way to not think about what is going on because it is now taking control of my head i can not stop thinking that soon i will be no more.even though they give me good hope their are times were i get my self nervos enough thinking about it. is their any easy way to keep my mind off of it and contuine to fight let me know please. 3rd treatment coming soon do not know what that will bring

hang in there! i found that i had to pray and keep a positive attitude. a friend gave me the book by joel osteen entitled live your best life now and it helped a great deal. you must keep your mind, thoughts, emotions busy with positive thoughts and images. if you let the fear, worry and uncertaintly take too much of your time you will lose it! i will pray for you. think of the things you like most and try your best to stay active with those things. best to you!
