Jjpope1 - I'm sorry to hear you are having a rough go. I know that losing your hair can be emotionally charged, but I have heard that for some women as it falls out it causes headaches and discomfort. How long is your hair? Could it be a contributing factor? Remind me what your cocktail is? I'm glad you're better managing the nausea.
I'm off to chemo today at 11:30. Steroids completely screwed up my sleep. Finally fell asleep around 2:00 am and got a few restless hours in. Nerves have picked up, but not nearly as bad as the first go around.
I'm lucky that my work healthcare provider covered up to $1,000 for a wig(s). Can only imagine how difficult it is if you don't have adequate coverage or qualify for a free wig. I bought two online, each in the $250 /$350 range ONLY because I had coverage. I plan on rocking my bad ass self bald. In fact, went to a restaurant yesterday with no covering (gets too warm) and frankly, no one noticed.
Thinking of you all,even when I am not posting. I marvel at how incredibly strong we are and how proud I am of all of us.
