I am wondering 3 things. I realize everyone is different but I guess I am asking in general.
1. Is the following psych response normal or should I talk with my nurse or doctor?
What seems to be happening is that everything I previously liked which I have used, eaten, done, etc. during chemo or right after when I am in a state of exhaustion, queasiness, itchy rash, pain from Neulasta, etc. now has a very negative connotation. I don't even like to get into bed now unless I have taken something to relax me because I associate bed with that irritable tired feeling I have on day two. I look at my favorite fleece blanket that I have taken to chemo, and want nothing to do with it. I want nothing to do with strawberry smoothies because I had them everyday for a week after my first treatment. Our younger son and his GF gave me an iPod and I am afraid to load my favorites onto it and take it to chemo for obvious reasons now. Is this normal or have I gone off the deep end?
