I firmly believe that successful treatment has to be accompanied by a positive attitude. I have never been a "OH why is this happening to me" person. I look at things more like this is another part of my life's journey and I will deal with it and move onto the next one. I have made an appointment at the local cancer center here to see about getting a wig but I am also in love with scarves so I might just use those for hair loss. I am also going to a "Look Good, Feel Better" class at the local hospital so I can learn ways to make me look better while I am going through the chemo. I have never really been into being overly concerned about my looks but I think anything I do that is positive will have a positive effect on my overall healing process.
My oncologist has told me there will be plenty of ways to deal with any side effects I might have so I am not really afraid of the chemo...a bit nervous but not afraid. I tend to get nauseous with just about any new medication I take so I think that might be an issue but, like you, I have already stocked up on medication to help me get through that. I am retired so I don't have to worry about getting up and trying to get to a job so it will be easy to just relax when I need to. And I have already seen that there are days when I am full of energy and others when I just need to get a good book and relax.
Thanks for your support.
