Hi, Chemo 5 today for Stage 2, full of emotions today

Options

Hi, I’m Kristine, I was diagnosed in March 2024, and my journal has been full of mixed emotions. I’ve learned a lot from my chemo experiences and tests, as well as how relationships change with siblings on being receptive and supportive. I am trying to find different things to eat, but I’m seeing that there are a lot of things I cannot eat. I have chemo every 21 days, and get sick throughout 16 days and get my tastebuds back and smell day 17-21, which stinks because say 22 is chemo day. I hope we can connect, have a great day.
