    How do you keep occupied during chemo? It can take 6 to sometimes 8 hours. I get bored.

    I take my phone but you can only look at Facebook for so long. What else do you do to keep from going nuts?

      Hey, LisaR, I have an eccentric question if it's OK: You can't be an only child---how many kids were in your family, and how many people are in your current household? (I'm asking to see if you fit the theory that only children never get bored because they're used to being alone, and that people who are used to being with people don't know what to do alone.)

      Hey Barb,
      Good comment!
      I rarely get bored, & am an only child & enjoy being alone. I would go nuts if constantly surrounded by a bunch of loud chattering people! I have friends who have huge families and don't know how they manage to keep their sanity, but I guess, it's what you're brought up with.

      Me, too, Molly! I look forward to being alone to do my "stuff" and I never get around to everything. I thought I'd organize all my photographs when I retired and still haven't done that, plus other things, like reading!
