The battle begins tomorrow. Ever since my first post on this site a couple of weeks ago, all of you have offered your encouragement, knowledge, support, and love. I truly feel like I have a new family.
You have answered my questions and shared your stories and offered suggestions on how to deal with side effects and everything else. You all have been amazing.
As I stated in my first post, I am a gay male. I have no partner and no family close by to help, but I AM NOT ALONE. I have my little dog, and she seems to be more loving every day. My neighbors have come together to offer help in every possible way...meal preparation, transportation, and taking care of my dog. Several have offered to spend the night with her if I have to be hospitalized.
And there is each and every one of you! I no longer feel alone in this battle, and I just want to thank you and tell you that I appreciate you more than I can say. I know there are some rough days ahead, but I know that I'll get through it. You've taken away so much of my fear and feelings of isolation.
You all overwhelm me, and I am blessed.
