      My cat, Misty, climbs in my lap while I watch TV or read. There is nothing like the unconditional love of a critter.

      Oh, Bengal. I'm sorry about your kitty. I lost the kitty who tried to groom my mostly bald head about 2 years after I completed treatment. And the other one died of old age about 9 months later. And then I was the longest I'd been without a cat since I moved into my first apartment by myself. Lost the last one the Monday before Thanksgiving 2015, and I was catless for about 5 weeks. Went and found myself a new buddy the day after Christmas that year. I was a LONG 5 weeks. She likes to be in the same room as me. Doesn't have to be on me, but close by. She'll nap on the ottoman next to my feet. Or the bottom of my bed. Or the bedroom floor. And it's been a long time since I've gone to the bathroom by myself... Gotta love our furry children!

    Has anyone here tried acupunture to help with the left over pain and side effects?

      I also have a friend who swears by it. But I've never tried it.

      It's one of the services offered at my oncology facility. I tend to be skeptical of some of these alternative treatments but was talked into trying it "just once". That's all it took. I was sold. I had continuing pain in my shoulder after surgeries and radiation. After she put the needles in and left me alone I could feel pain working down my arm, through my hand and out the ends on my fingers. Hey, I was as amazed as anyone but I'm not making this up. I always get a metallic taste in my mouth when I'm doing this. She said it's the toxins working their way out of my body. I now go in every few weeks for a treatment and come away feeling tired and refreshed all at the same time. Weird.
