Too much pain

Just when I hoped this couldn’t get any worse, this “trial” round of chemo is kicking my bones. One side effect of the Lapatinib pills is pain to the ever-depleting marrow. Another is soreness on the fingertips. I have it all. I can’t get comfortable. My body is wracked with excruciating pain. I’m weepy.

All I can do right now is dream of abandoning it all and running away to a vitamin treatment clinic in Tijuana.

Take care of your health!!!
