    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I just had my first round of chemo three weeks ago. I thought most everyone worked while undergoing chemo so that's what I did...straight through my first round. I had no idea. As soon as I got to my car I couldn't stop vomiting. I've never experienced the kind of pain where it hurt to even let my top row of teeth touch the bottom row. Someone had called in sick so I couldn't not let the workplace perform to it's usual standards.

    Easy to Do: Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree
