I started chemotherapy a week ago. My mouth tastes like metal whatever I eat or drink. My head’s itchy from sunburn or it could be one of the many side effects starting up. Both of these are not bad, just reminders of what’s in my system.
When you think of chemo the grim image of severe nausea and vomiting comes to mind. I’m glad to say the nausea hasn’t taken over – the drugs, the drugs are good. I’m floppy and exist in a chemical and body-ill haze. So far, I’m doing alright.
