i was so scared , when i was going to start. you all were so kind and guided me thru, plus the strength of god. so far its been not bad (touch wood )lost my hair,,thats chalanging to the mind and soul.but it will grow back.on this journey i have met some amazing people , and learned alot mentaly and spiritual too. you hear all the bad everyday on the news , lose your trust in mankind. but there is alot kind, careing, strong ,people out there. i am lucky in alot of ways, i live in canada , so i dont have the worries of money( was shoked on alot of stories on here) i dont have a husband and young children to look after.kids have grown and grandchildren. makes them see nothing is forever on this world. i am so proud how the family pulled together for surpport of each other. i am so blessed....i have 2 more treatments left of the chemo i am on now. then i start taxol mmmm another scary first

    Happy for you
    My first chemo was yesterday and so far, so good. Nurse said I will feel effects on 2nd day most likely rather than the day after. Just my stomach is a little acidy, nothing else. Yes, the hair thing will be a challenge. I'm glad you don't have the worries alot of us have, like me. I don't have a large family. Husband and 2 teen girls, a sister who helps and a few friends say call if I need anything. I think it will work out. Money is a situation, I missed 2 weeks of work, but that will pick up soon. Glad you're doing well and have great support. This site has helped me alot, too!
