Some good days, some lousy ones
Here are answers to your questions:
I’ve got stage IV [redacted] cancer. I was diagnosed completely out of the blue. Life since then has been a fog of chaotic thoughts, feelings, emotions, etc. Anger, sorrow, tears, resignation, etc.
Stage IV means it had already spread before it was diagnosed, and so it is inoperable, they tell me. I’m taking hormone therapy, and feeling ok right now. Still have all my hair! Main side-effect is being tired all the time. And, oh, the treatment takes a toll on my libido. Total drag!
Glad to hear from you, if you still want to drop me a note.
