Over the last week, since my counselor hypnotized me, I have been incredibly upbeat and full of energy.  I’m not sure if it’s the hypnosis suggestions regarding positivity or what but it’s really been a positive thing for me this week as I head into my 8th and final chemo treatment.

Found Some Words

I’ve been trying to blog for days and days.  There’s so much going on in my brain lately and I have to sort it out.  Feels as if I've written this blog before.  I'm in the midst of cycles of chemo so I cycle through the same set of feelings/issues every couple of weeks--some themes are …
