The Next Step

January 9, 2017

I finished my first round of chemotherapy. Thank God! That Neulasta was abusive. The second round began today with an appointment with my oncologist where I had to sign papers approving the usage of Taxol and read through the 3 pages of probable and possible side effects. It makes a girl feel all warm and […]

Graceful Resolve

December 31, 2016

I’ve never been one to make resolutions. I will, however, admit that I do try to be better than I was the previous year, which honestly, isn’t all that hard.

this might be a little “rambly”

December 15, 2016

I was warned by a few people when I got sick that I would find out who my real friends were. It’s one of those sickeningly sad things that no one wants to think about, but alas, the truth- not everyone wants to stick around for the “rough stuff”. I’ve got to admit though, aside […]
