Mods:

I just finished chemo yesterday but my cancer is hormone receptor positive so I have to stay supressed and this might last a while. It's not so bad though. It's just that I usually get in to bed cold and wake up just right and now I get in to bed cold and wake up to rip all of the blankets off, only to put one back on two minutes later and then rip it off one minute later. But I hope this will save me on heating this winter.
