I wrote about my experience with the big "C". It does not have every detail but it has the biggest part of it. I went through alot more then that, but I didn't put the personal stuff in it. It has not been an easy journey, but I would not give up! I have been fighting all my life and I have learned alot. I appreciate the people on this board for replying, and I know how alot of you feel. It is an awful thing to go through but I feel it has made me a better person.




Much Love and Hugs
Jackie

    Cancer Changes Everything
    Hi Jackie, I just read your story, and I wanted to tell you that I'm so sorry for everything that you've been thru. It makes me sad that you've had to endure so much. I'm really not a religious person but I like to think that I'm quite spiritual, and I always felt that God doesn't give us more than we can handle. We might never know the reasons why he/she does the things that he/she does and I don't try to figure out the why. But I agree that it truly does makes us better people but I also think it makes us alot stronger. It's not an easy journey and at times we feel like we can't go on but that's when we realize how strong we are. I wish you all the best and you will be in my thoughts and prayers :)

    My husband was the same, same chemo he had your same thoughs too he would just think about chemo and would get sick even if he drove by the chemo place he would get sick chemo is very hard for people to take but he did do it for the six months . the required time. and sure was glad when the last treatment ended. I think you have great strength heck your doing chemo that takes alot of strength.

    I really enjoy talking to all of the people on this board. I appreciate all the support. I don't really go out, lately I have been looking and reading, never posting. But I have nobody to talk to, my life is hard, too much to get into tonight. Thank you for reading it is a true nightmare, but I lived it for a reason.

    Much Love and Prayers your way!!! God Bless You, TOOOOOO!!!!!
