    Side Effects (mosquitos hated me during chemo!): Mosquitos love me, but when I was taking chemotherapy I could sit outside all night long and never get a mosquito bite! I love sitting outside on my porch, and I have to use repellant now, but the summer of 2001 I could enjoy my porch without getting one mosquito bite! Has anyone else experienced this?

    Side Effects (Nausea/Vomiting): In addition to my anti-nausea medicine, I also sucked on peppermints. For some reason, the peppermints worked. I was able to continue working while I was taking my chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In fact, I took my radiation treatments during my lunch hour. It's amazing what a person can do when he/she decides that cancer is not going to rule that person's life.
