Hey guys! Sorry I fell off the face of the Earth for a while there, it's been ridiculous around here.
Chemo's been... okay I suppose. It's really hard for the nurses to get a vein on me so I'm still working the port issue but I'm afraid I'll be done by the time my doctor is arsed to talk to me about it! My mother harassed him via inter office notes last Friday so hopefully he gets the hint that hey, I need a port. I've been asking for an appointment for weeks! But he finally gave the okay last week so I'll just have to call my nurse or something. It burns so bad almost every time too, it's awful. I feel like an idiot every week because I always end up crying.
Among other side effects, I was itchy for a while but that symptom seems to have gone away for the time being. I got some rashes all over my face and neck two weeks ago and I'm super tired of course. I went back to work though so I need to get over that, lol. Only two days a week for a few hours so I'm not working myself to death. I've also really had a sweet tooth which I found strange. I'm more of a savory person myself so. I dunno if that counts as a side effect, lol.
Along with the chemo I had to get these shots to make blood grow and that burned real bad too. They found I have a blood disease, thalassemia it's called, and that's why after surgery my blood count was low. Just one thing after another, right?
And my hair's really starting to thin out bad. Am I going to lose all of my hair? I know everybody reacts differently but it's starting to look that way.. clumps and clumps every day, my car is covered in hair. Icky icky.
I hope everyone has been doing well!! You've been in my thoughts a lot lately.
