So what do I think about all this? The chemotherapy and radiation therapy helps to kill my cancer but since the treatment is so strong, it affects my body in other ways. The first thing that happened is that I lost all my hair on my head. I also lost my appetite and I get sick and nauseous all the time and I do not like to eat too much. All the foods that I like taste very different from the way they used to or don’t have any taste at all. All of these things are making me lose weight. I also don’t have very much energy because a lot of the strength in my body is going to replace the good cells that are killed along with the bad cancer cells.
One of the things that I learned is that whatever your life feels like, you should always be thankful for the little things. I would be so happy to be able to run across the playground at full speed and not be tired. I would love to eat my favorite pepperoni pizza and wish that it tasted the way that it used to. The other thing that I learned is that you should enjoy the things in life that are important to you because you never know if you will be able to do them tomorrow.
