I have my chemo on weds and I am already getting cranky! It is round 3 of 6 for me so I should be happy that I am going to be halfway through, but it just seems like I am finally feeling better when I have to go again. I know it's working, the dr has said it is, but I just wanna curl up and stay home! Maybe it's because we started with chemo and not surgery for me, I just want this to be finished. Sorry for venting!I am trying to stay up at home for the kids and sometimes I just need to get it out!! Thanks, monica

    We all know how you feel, so dump away. It will make you feel better.I wish it was all over also. They started me with chemo first with surgery to follow. I have 10 more weeks of chemo treatments to get through! I just keep telling myself that "I can do this"!! Good Luck and Hugs!! Diane:)

    I too am having chemo first....
    then masectomy, then more chemo. Mine starts this Thursday and I get anxious when I think about it. So I have tried not to think about it much, except in a positive way. That chemo is a good thing that is going to kill my cancer. The doctor has already told you that your's is working. That is so great. It is normal to feel down sometimes with all that we go through. Just all the tests and the waiting for each set of results is hard, let alone what I can imagine the chemo to be like.

    This is such a great group of people to share your thoughts and worries with. I have received so much support here. So dump away and hopefully we can make you feel better.

    Love and Light,
    Vicki

    I had chemo first and then
    I had chemo first and then surgery and then more chemo and then radiation. This was back in 2003/2004. Hang in there. Having chemo first helped to shrink my rather large tumors.
