{insert swear word here}

I fear I am not a 'robocop' and infact my hair is thinning out Beeeeeeeg time. I comb my hair every morning with the utmost precautions over the sink and every morning I swear infront of the mirror hoping it's just my hair thinning and not actually falling out. 'Maybe just maybe it'll stop doing this' I tell myself. 3 months later seems a bit delayed compared to the normal 'after one treatment'. Suppose if it happens it happens but a young womens hair is more than you think. The silver lining : goodbye damaged hair hello healthier hair???? ...Always trying for a positive side. I tried :p
On another note I am starting on my 4th cycle of treatment (every month is a cycle) but I think my body (and hair) is starting to feel it now. I feel more and more tired lately and I'm finding I need my naps - can't concentrate to save my life either it seems when I reach mid day.
Have a good weekend all :)

and so it continues...

I got a bit of a surprise yesterday when at treatment. It turns out it's not 3 months long but 6 instead! 
The trials department seems a bit confused and now I will be continuing the 'journey' to get better..
I'm definately not against it because I am certainly hoping that it 'zaps' the rest of the cancer away but it does leave me a bit worried about work. I am only working 3x a week and I am basically out of leave by now. It's a bit worrying but it's the least of my worries I suppose...
Feeling good today - just a bit drained so doing stuff from bed and listening to some good tunes...

Man (Lady) Down!!

No treatment yesterday - extremely ill with flu. Let me tell you something - it knocks you big time!!
My blood count for the first time ever was pretty bad. White blood cells were sky high. 
Was no option really - doc basically told me I will definately be in hospital within a few days if I did go through treatment. It's not a good thing at all but we'll take it as it comes.
People, if you are sick - please don't consider me rude if I run for the hills. Trust me - don't want to feel this sick ever again in my life.
