hello again everyone. My aunt had her first chemo session on Thursday the 8th of June. I'm just wondering if anger is a side effect. She's so mad all the time but has sudden outbursts of really bad temper. :( I don't know how to deal with those or what to think. After a temper outburst she'll apologize and say she's not mad at me, but those are taking their toll on me since I've noticed my stomach is in knots and I'm always tense like I'm waiting for lightening to strike.
The only real side effects I've noticed so far are the cold sensitivity, tingling in her finger tips and the rare side effect someone mentioned here about first bite jaw pain. She has that every first bite when she begins to eat anything (I can't find the post again but am going to keep looking since I want to read it again).
I just feel so hopeless and I'd like to make it less angering for her but have no idea how or if I can.
