Fuck my life.

Last round of chemo, all of a sudden I had severe pain in my arm. They stopped the treatment, wrapped my arm in hot blankets, and started it up again. Business as usual.

Eleven days later, my arm hurts. It still hurts, and it's spreading. The vein is swollen, as is the tissue around it. Oh. It would seem that's pretty much classic vein damage from chemotherapy.

I'm so sick of this fucking cancer!

If this port doesn't work, heads will fucking roll.

Deborah: I really hope so. Then again, looks like I'm stuck with another round of chemo through the veins. fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck. All this because some little shit at the hospital screwed up my scheduling the first time around, for the port insertion.

Holly: Did anything work for you, to help heal it up? I've read about putting heat on it and slowly stretching it... I've been doing that, but it seems to hurt more and more each day...
