    Is this for real, I still have two kids to raise.

    Oh No

    I think I get stressed about having to miss work, how will I take care of my family, ect. Then i think about how hard it is for kids to watch a parent go through the treatments ect. Then i fell guilty about thinking about myself when I know there are plenty of families who have gone through much more than this. Im just starting out so I hope I learn to be a better human being through all this.

    Thinking problems

    Side Effects

    I have been taking rev-dex for one week now. My head itches to beat heck, my glands behind my ears are swollen and hurt. I dont think I think right, and I just dont like how I feel. I'm always exhausted, but I was before I started the chemo. I am also mad about all this, and I sorta feel like I'm on the outside looking in at times. I'm sure it is the shock part. I'm going to spend some time with my Bible.

    Milestones

    Well it has taken me a good six months to want to get back on this site. I just want to forget my treatments and smells(l.o.l) everything that I had to do for my cancer treatment. I didnt want any reminders. Im feeling so much better now, but am not half as strong as I used to be. I'm not back to work yet and am doing physical therapy. What cancer did for me is open up a whole new world of people suffering with pain and loss ect. and a whole new appreciation for the life I have and the time I have. My life is in Christ Jesus, its in Him that I live and move and have my being, and that death has no dominion over me.We are all in Gods hands. This is my comfort, and peace. God Bless all my friends and strangers on this hard journey.
