Number 3 tomorrow?

After a week off due to low WBC counts, I will present myself tomorrow afternoon for treatment 3.  I hope I can do it.  Am a bit concerned as the neuro side effects have lingered on, appearing sporadically through the week, even after skipping a dose.   I know I shouldn't compare myself to others, but a gentleman that began his treatments (same protocol) at the same time I did has had VERY MINIMAL reaction to anything  --- and he has 25 years on me!  My onc. says everyone's enzymes react differently and I shouldn't be discouraged.  My hair is still falling out too, a little bit everyday, so I proactively bought a wig on Friday.  Maybe I won't need it, but it made me feel better.  Trying very hard to stay off the self-pity bandwagon and focus on my many blessings.  On the upside, the weekend has been beautiful, weather-wise, and I have been able to go for lots of walks and drink cold beverages the last several days!!  I may even have ice cream tonight, not that I need it -lol.

Hey Sally...
you are doing just what you need to do and that is to look towards each day as a blessing and to do what you need to do to get through this ordeal. Be strong and focus on every thing you go through is one less to do. Play mind games
with yourself..it helps. I am cheering for you!!
