    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Wasn't feeling right for a while, didn't think much of it. Went in for 2 weeks of coughing. Test, tests, more test, hospital admission for tests, diagnosis.

    Prednisone to shrink Lymphoma before chemo.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Don' t feel sick anymore, not tired, but only sleep 4 hours a night.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Vision Problems

    Side Effects

    Hard first week after first chemo treatment. Fainting, dehydration, blurred vision, super tired, and feel out of it.

    Celebration

    So far doing much better after second treatment. Doctor switched out the Benadryl for something else so I'm actually awake today. Slow and shaky, but fully awake and functioning otherwise!
