I have had the first chemo treatment. That was 9 days ago. I'm sick and drugged out and just sick all over.

My white blood cell count is so low they put me on antibiotics as a preventative. I'm supposed to have the next chemo treatment this coming Thursday.

I'm starting to wonder if I can survive this. I'm not giving up.

I don't care about my hair or weight any more. Well, sorta, since I'm down to 149.6 and have lost almost no hair. So, since I know, I must care. Idk. n/m.

ok, had a good cry, and I feel better. Love you guys. Thanks for listening.

What IS your diet currently like mommanature?


Diet is something doctors barely know anything about but can seriously affect how you are feeling.

a good diet designed to fight nausea and boost the immune system is definitely needed.




also.
seriously.
Do you need anything?

if there is anything AT ALL you think i might be able to help you with PLEASEEE send me a message.
Id really like to be able to do something for you so i dont feel as helpless as i do.

even if you dont think that i can personally help you with it, i might know someone who can... so please dont hesitate to ask.


much love mothernature.
Sending healing energy your way.

At this point there is no reason to think you can't survive this. Of course we will all die some day.

I'm sure you would viddy good with no hair, though no doubt you would miss it. It will grow back eventually in any case.

Love and hugs .

You got this MommaNature! FWIW, I'd say take this time to live life to its fullest. There's little better medicine than feeling good and being happy, after all. Were it myself, I'd imagine it being very easy to get caught up in the worry and the stress of it all. Maybe I'm just projecting, but why not take every day to its fullest?

Like I said, YOU GOT THIIIIS!!!

Hello dear friends.

Tomorrow I go for the next chemo treatment. 10am.

They do different cocktails each time and I'm hoping this next one will be the 'uppy' one. I know it's not the same one as last time and I'm grateful for that. Knocked my ass down.

I couldn't stand those antibiotics anymore. They weren't letting me eat well. I just isolated myself instead, which wasn't really hard, since I feel so crappy. I took them for 4 1/2 days (outta 7), so I'm not too bad.

I think I'm eating pretty good, considering I can't have any fresh fruits or veggies. Cooked only. I miss my grapes. I've got 2 cases of Pedia-sure and some other nutrient drinks. They are tolerable. I'm not eating any junk food at all, but really, I just don't want it. I've been eating a lot of chicken, cottage cheese & apple sauce and I drink about a jug of V8 splash everyday. Tonight I'm gonna have peas (frozen) with some real butter. Mint would be good on those, but it's fresh. I guess I can microwave it. Naw, I'm not gonna risk it.

I hate to ask the doc for yet another pill, but I have indigestion so bad, it's bumming me out bad. I know it's just a chemo side effect. And another side effect is that I sweat constantly. Weird.

One thing for sure is that weed really helps. It helps with the nausea and more. It's like it takes the edge off of a lot of the minor chemo effects. The only down side is it doesn't last long enough. I wish I lived in a place where I could shop around for the cultivar that fit my needs.

My sister sent me some new books, so I'm enjoying those and have watched way too many Futuramas and South Parks.

Love y'all.

Hi Mothernature

8 chemo treatments, 31 rads, 2 surgeries. (2006)

I wish you weren't going through this but wanted to tell you from one survivor to another..its doable. Its shitty but its doable. I remember when I was facing chemo and someone said that to me. It helped so I am passing it on to you.

Tips that I learned

Drink lots of water. It will help flush the chemo drugs out of your system.

get some lotion, take care of your skin...add epsom to your bath water...its good for your aches and will help ground you.

a bit of myrh gum is good to rinse your mouth with. salt water works too.

ginger tea will help with the indigestion

Close your eyes during chemo and take yourself someplace else.

good luck tomorrow. I'm sending you healing energy.

Thanks loved ones.

Jenna, thank you so much for coming back to Yahooka at this time. I know you've been missed around here. Thank you for your advice. It helps to know you are a survivor. Please feel free to advise me at any time.

Bendy, I'm really not sure about eating it. I have a budget and I'm not sure about the cost. It's funny tho, when I'm the sickest, I seem to smoke less. It's the times when I almost feel decent that I smoke more.

Today I get 'the shot', and I'm not afraid to say, it hurts like a motherfucker. And it's a slow shot. Then my bones hurt and shit and all that, all over again. So, you won't see me for a few days, when that kicks in.

Don't think you can be bad though, cause I got my spies. Wahahahaha.

Naw, for real, I love you guys. Thanks for helping me so much. Seeing the kind words, the thanks, emotes, all that shit, really does brighten my day. So, please don't think you aren't doing anything, because you are.

Just remember that so many people get some form of cancer these days that it's almost fashionable.
Also remember that the majority survive because the treatments are so advanced.
And then remember that your body is so strong that it can handle all of the poison that they are pumping into you.
Stay positive at all times and try to 'enjoy' being sick. You can be as lazy, foul tempered, annoying, critical as you like and everyone will forgive you!

More importantly, you will have a lot of time on your hands, use it wisely and try and get something spiritual out of the whole experience, it really is a very spiritual experience possibly the most that can be.

2 down, 6 to go. This second one knocked me down way more than the first.

This has quickly totally consumed my life. Everything is about being sick. It's boring, I hate it. It's hard. I just don't feel good and it's hard to eat. I'm at 141 pounds.

I did get this special care package tho. Tasty!

So yeah, last Fri., my scalp started itching and sorta a light burning feeling. By Sunday, I had lost 99.99% of my hair. I cut what was left to about an inch. I'm almost completely bald and I don't care.

I haven't read the news, played a game or even been on the computer in days. What's the buzz? Did we invade Syria yet? Any good news?

You really should make an effort to talk to people rather than ruminating.

Just hang on until this is over.

Then we can go back to me asking you sexually inappropriate questions whenever you stumble into IRC.

Just like old times. <3
