    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I could take the chemo anyday if it didn't include the steroids after the treatment. 5 pills daily for 4 days...and those four days were XXX...which as some points I was not sure what was truth and what the side effects of the steroids. Each and every time I felt like I was going crazy, coming very close to putting myself in the hospital for the mentally ill. Each day was a roller coaster which at times could go from sad to anguish to fear to paranoia in as little as 3 doc finally spaced out the amount to include more days and it helped but not enough for me to believe it is over and I will not have to do them again...I hated each and every second of taking them.
