Well Chemo was a bit of a Bitch!


Talk about sidelined! That was nothing compared to what chemo did to me. I’ll leave the more gruesome details to specfic posts in my planned ‘Surving Chemo’ page but I would like to share my journey now that I can somewhat function. It still may take me a while but it was something I wanted to do from the start. Although I haven’t been able to write as I had hoped, I have been documenting pictorially and that jogs my memory to the powerful emotions and physical horrors I have been through. 

Friday is my last dose of ‘Chemo’ and now the end is in sight I am hoping I can recover somewhat. However, it is only the end of one (extremely long and painful) chapter and I now have to ready myself for surgery and radiation which will take me through to Christmas. I am also still receiving another Chemo type drug for about a year but I’m hoping the everyday side effects aren’t too extreme so that I can start to heal and repair all the damage done by the very first dose of chemo I had. 

Apologies to the people following for food intolerances as there will be a bit of a Cancer focus for a while. However, don’t despair as there will be a bit of content you may be interested in as I have made quite a bit of progress in this area. I can now eat a plate of veges and a chicken and vege soup with short cooked stock.  So still stick around as I will also touch on my usual topics.

  1. It is fantastic that this chemo is coming to an end. It is a big relief for you to end this step. Though you have been ill and in pain during this journey you have been very brave and as always do your best in a bad situation. I admire your strength and determination. You have had down times, naturally you would, over the course of chemo. I am sorry that you suffered so much. You are strong and will continue to be so. Love to you, You Powerhouse Woman!!! (fist punch to the sky).
