Hi tortoisegirl, just wondered how you were feeling after your first chemo? Hope it wasn't as bad as you were expecting. I'm due to start this Friday, and am nervous as anything, making myself feel ilI with the anxiety!
Sending you a big hug
You'd be crazy not to be scared Tortoisegirl! And nobody claims that chemo is pleasant, but what we've all found is that it's doable. Read the sticky thread on tips for getting through chemo, and link up with the November Newbies, then you'll have buddies who are going through the same stuff as you at the same time.
I'm a May Moonbeam, so the chemo and radiotherapy are in the past tense for me, but I do remember the huge support I got from the other Moonbeams, and hope I gave back too. It's so much easier dealing with it with other women in real time. Plus sometimes you feel you can't dump yet more on your family and friends because they don't understand. Good news is that everyone on this site DOES understand.
Have a cyber hug <<<<<Tortoisegirl>>>>> and sleep well.
