My Story:
I wanted to start my profile with a few feel good, happy thoughts, but I had my 4th of 8 chemo treatments today and am really starting not so good.
The metallic taste is starting, the bad aching feeling is creepin up and it feels like I need to take a shower and go to bed.

I know, that once I go to bed, all the horrendous dreams will start. They always do after a treatment. Sometimes, I can wake up without yelling or screaming, sometimes not. I know that my husband, Mark, gets very little sleep.

So bear with me as I work on this profile. Feel free to post.
