I'm still receiving chemo, so I'm not sure of the final effects, but so far I seem to be handling it physically pretty well but emotionally it's tough.

    Dear Pie, I understand what you mean by being emotionally difficult. I did not have to have chemo but I, like you found it very difficult emotionally. I felt I could do the physical stuff (surgery), easily but cancer treatment sure takes an emotional toll. I am still trying to deal with it after almost 2 years.
    God be with us and bless us all. Denise

    I'm sorry, I meant to say that even though I didn't have to have Chemo, I did have radiation treatments. Ugh! Sometimes my mind works faster than my typing fingers.

    It will get better, but it may get a bit harder first if you feel bad about hairloss and other things. I like what someone said above, emrace it. It is life giving. I had chemo before surgery, had surgery, and then found out i needed more chemo (ugh). But in this second round i know more what to expect. And most importantly, i know it will end. I have eyebrows, hair and fingernails now--that i will lose again this time--but i have seen that things grow back. And i am increasingly grateful for my life. Good luck. I hope this gives you some peace.
