    I'm so tired of doing this chemo thing (since March) and never feeling like myself anymore. Having a down day today. It feels like my support has up and left me. My family has gone about their lives and never bother. Wish could crawl in a hole and forget the whole thing. How much of this 'feeling down' can be from the chemo? A friend thinks I should get counseling, and I have no energy to even begin fighting the insurance company for it. Any advise?

    Thank you for the help. I think it is more from the anti-nausea drug than the chemo. My doctor has given me a prescription to try. I've lost 4 lbs in 4 days because I can't eat anything other than applesauce (and that's getting old real fast). I'll let you all know if prescription helps.

      I used a product called Oasis Dry Mouth Spray. It really helped, especially at night.

      Always keep a bottle of water on hand, and chewing gum helps or sucking on a hard candy too.
