So today is the day before my second session of chemo. How am I feeling? I now know what it feels like on the days after chemo and although it's not dreadful its still not great and I feel rough for two or three days after. I find this difficult when you've been feeling better and starting to live life again. I've had my blood results today and chemo will be going ahead tomorrow. I have to keep things in perspective..... There are people far more poorly than myself and having far more rigorous treatment than me therefore I have to suck it up and get on with it.
