I try to look around me each day and find things to be thankful for, like being able to enjoy going out for lunch with family of friends of watching the birds on the bird table outside my window, although life is tough there is still so much I am thankful for. I have a strong faith in God which gives me peace about my future, whatever the outcome.
I do still have days when I struggle and I get very frustrated with the NHS and the deterioration in the service since I had my primary cancer in 2004 and the way patients with secondary BC are treated, but when I start getting negative I try to think of something positive instead.
I am on the same regime as you, 6 cycles of Cape so far, the last one I also had vinorelbine. I found that I felt very tired for a couple of days after taking the vinorelbine and was hit with the big D about 8 hours after taking the capsules but apart from that I was fine. I don't think vinorelbine is supposed to cause hair loss but it may cause thinning. I normally have my hair coloured but have decided to stop for now.
Why don't you join in on the main cape thread, just use the reply button and post your question or comment there, when you post as a new topic people can very easily miss it. Posting on the main cape thread makes it easier for members to look back and read what problems other members have had when taking cape and how they have coped.
Treatment is really tough, I know I often resent the amount of time I have to sit around waiting at the hospital for different things and fell sorry for my husband having to spend so much time there with me but I try to be thankful for what I do have and enjoy the small things that I can still do.
Sending lots of hugs and hope everything goes well with the new drug.
