    Where can I get help with "skills for living?" Cooking--I started a fire, and cut myself with a knife. Balance--I have difficulty walking, especially on uneven ground, changing directions. I cannot stand on one leg.

    I feel like an accident waiting to happen. I have difficulty with sequencing, I can't seem to get and stay organized. Where should I go for help?

      Have you contacted the American Cancer Society? Their phone number is to the right and bottom of this page. They can tell you what local resources are available. Additionally, you can contact your cancer center/hospital. They may have a suggestion, too.

    Side Effects (Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy))

    Side Effects (Chemo brain): I'm beginning to sense what side effects will be permanent, I.e. Chemobrain, neuropathy (including difficulty swallowing, restless legs, and poor balance.)
    I need to make some changes, and I want help with this.

      hey! doing really well with taxol!
      Scarey thing today though, my job is running out in Sept so I had to go on a job interview today (always scarey), but with no hair, do you think they'll notice I am fighting cancer? Due to regulations, they can't ask about my health--but it's like chatting while a very large elephant in sitting in your living room....I did wear a pretty head scarf. No questions were asked about my health but it was WEIRD anyway! Wonder if they will offer me the job? Humm...

      Great to hear from you. Those last few treatments are hard, I know. But let me know how you feel after the last one. I had this like lost feeling, like, what do I do now? Finally after a year I no longer feel so much like a cancer patient, and ready to move on. It sounds good to me! Take care, I'm always thinking of you.
