    Cat scan coming up

    Oh No

    My doctor wants me to get a cat scan this week to see how the chemo is doing. I am worried because I hope that everything is going planned but I am worried that it might be spreading and I am already having a hard time with this chemo already.

    Work problems

    Oh No

    After being diagnosed last year I have had to stop working, and my daughter has had to take over a full-time job to support for both her and I. She is 20 years old and going to school full-time and I am feeling role-strain because I should be the one providing for her. I want to start working again to take some of the load off my daughter but she will not let me because I am currently receiving treatment which is everyother week.
