Everyday I thank God – because it could always be worse.


Let’s talk side effects.  A quick rundown.  Headache, nausea, neuropathy,  cramps, constipation, diarrhea, back spasms, mouth sores and numbness, nosebleeds, constant nasal drip – then the skin peels under my nose and lips.  As that’s not enough then my hands burn as if I had 3rd degree burns, they peel and are beet red. Eyes tear, blurred vision – not from the vodka.  A salty taste in my mouth that never fades and did I mention I’m emotional? 😭 Last but certainly not least is hair loss.  Ouch!   And just as I am feeling better, it’s time to go again.

Thanks Carboplatin, Taxitiera, Herceptin, Projeta and last but not least Nuelasta.  You have replaced my vodka.   Every 3 weeks for 18 weeks.  7 hours of iv’s.  😒  Then I get 1 iv every 3 weeks for the rest of a year!  Yeah!   See, it could always be worse.

I prefer Stoli any day of the week.  Neet please!  🍸

Having been diagnosed with Cancer recently, not feeling great & not having worked in 6 months I decided to share my story. I've worked selling real estate for 30+ years. Kept myself busy at all times. Now I spend my days recuperating and looking forward to closing this chapter in my life. I know. I still have a ways to go, but a God willing I will get there.
