I start chemo on tuesday, and I have no idea how I even feel about this. I'm afraid one second, worried, then in denial, and so on. I can't even form thoughts well enough to tell my friends/family that I'm freaking out on the inside. Any ideas on how to relax enough to share my thoughts so I don't go crazy? Thank you!!

Remember happy thoughts, sing your favorite song, dance, be with your family and friends.. and pray to God, tell Him anything that you feel, anything that you wanna tell Him. Do mylot as long as you can, read posts and comments. I know chemo has really difficult side-effects but you go girl, put happy thoughts in your mind! We'll be here to cheer u up. God bless!

I'm so sorry you're feeling like this, jeepstergirl. But it's natural to feel scared and worried about chemo, I think. I don't talk to my family much, about how I really feel about all this cancer stuff. I think it would just upset them too much. And I figure there's no point us all being completely freaked out! They're more help to me, when they're calm. You'll have had your first treatment by now, so I hope it went ok, and you haven't had too many side-effects?
