I'm Still Here

The doctors gave me about 6 months to 22 months. I'm still here and will celebrate my 2 year anniversary of my diagnosis in July along with my 64th birthday. I'm tired most days and will not take any of the chemo recommended, although I did have one slipped to me in the guise of a hormone to control spread. Bullshit. Remember this ploy and don't fall for it.

I experienced all of these horrible symptoms including hair loss, nausea, diarrhea, painful joints, muscles and bones, headaches, sleep problems, weight gain with concurrent loss of appetite, etc. I decided to look up the complete down low on it instead of the Cliff notes version. Very informative.

I quit taking them about 2 weeks ago and slowly feel the miasma lifting.

Maybe more later.
