This is my own story of life with advanced ovarian cancer. I do not offer medical advice, and my treatment decisions are my own. Please talk to your physician or healer and gain as much information as you can about this dreadful disease called cancer. Remember, knowledge is Power!

Bitchy McBitcherson

I'm at that point in chemo (1 more month to go, 3 more blasts) where the cumulative effects are kickin my ass. It's a beautiful day outside and I want to be lounging by the pool with an ice cold beer. But I have to stay out of the sun, and I feel too pukey for a beer. Woe is me. :( I got the Neulasta shot with my chemo on Monday and feel like I've been hit by a truck. Percocet is not my friend today. Got the itch-fest going on with that, and the hot flashes are way out of control. Did I say woe is me?

Yeah, I'm whining, I know. But it's better to get it out here than let loose on some asshole who desperately deserves it (or not). Today is not a good day to fuck with me. I am in a mood. And I feel like shit.



  1. You earned the right to whine... so whine away... I was in your shoes and it sucked..get the doctor to pump you up with some clear fluids via the IV .. that use to bring me back just a little... I use to use one of the headbands that I tied on my bald head and soak it with ice and cold water and wrap it around my neck that way it was handy when the flash hit..hang in there... I use to think because I felt so shitty that the chemo was working and I was right it did...

  2. Thanks for the comment! I was also one who thought the chemo was working my first time around. It just didn't work well enough, cuz here I am doing it again.

    I'm glad your treatment worked and you are living life again. I'm working on it!


  3. bitch away darlin... but I tell ya, I have had one of those days as well and ready to let loose.
    Neulasta sucks the big one, I think every cancer doc that says it's no big deal should get a few of those beauties.

    some good things.. you prob have more hair then me! and you have enough energy to be pissed off.
    love you, deb
