Oh my god what a night never experienced aches and pains like that before also no sleep...think i was really naive to think i could fly through this i think i only preparead myself for hair loss the pain was actually quite scary it comes over you in waves at anytime i think what really hit me was i didnt want to be sick in front of the children i try and shield as much as possible but sometimes you cant escape i took my son to school and came home and cried i feel so helpless 

Mike sent you a hug.

Being an optimist, I never think anything will be bad. I underestimated how much tx would knock me down. I'd been through chemo in 1990, but I guess I forgot how trying it could be. You will get through it; just do t push your body. God bless.
