quick note on chemo

I know and am grateful that chemotherapy can help me but fak it can also hurt you. Think I have been constantly at odds, apart from a day or two when I went away, since the last time I had chemo. Maybe not, but it sure feels like it.
The latest is my mouth. One ulcer on the side but can barely feel it and in fact, not even sure it's still there. However,my entire mouth feels funny: the upper palate too smooth, the tongue not ideal, the taste pretty yuck. Phoned the oncology centre and they told me to continue with the "yellow daffodils" as I now call it, the emulsion for mouth thrush.
Need to cheer myself up. Hope the beautician will do that although it's one I don't know. Off for a mani and pedi.
