Bring the tears! I start chemotherapy tomorrow for stage 2b breast cancer, today I was busy talking to nurses about what to expect, arranging home care for my PICC line and the pharmacy about supplies and meds, I even did a teams meeting for lymphedema. I was fine, just focused on organizing etc, then the chemo nurse told me I can’t swim with a picc line and this was the straw today, I bawled for a good minute! Gah!! I’m sure many of you have similar incidents, hugs!!
Two weeks after my diagnosis I was out walking and a neighbour asked where my dog was. An explosion of tears flooded out and this poor man (that I am not close to) didn’t know what to say. You can only be brave for so long before those emotions bubble up.
Hoping everything goes well with chemo for you. I know it has a bad rap but chemo has been the gentlest part of my journey. Wishing you few side effects with all of them temporary. ❤️
