It sucketh mightily.

My sister has finished her second round of chemo and has been put on Zejula for life or until she can't tolerate the side effects. The nurses say if she makes it through the first month it'll be much better.

I don't know that one. What are the side effects?

I'm not dead yet.

From memory, just about everything. GI problems and leukemia (! rare, though) are what sticks in my mind.

I wish I'd heard you say that four years ago when I was doing the toxic chemo performance. A hellishly unfunny experience otherwise.

The only things worse than the effects of having chemo are the effects of not being able to have chemo.

A friend has an aggressive stage 4 cancerous brain tumour, discovered while on holiday on a break from her PhD studies. She's 25. Devastatingly unfair, particularly as cancer has stalked her family before. Fuck cancer.

A mix of [Mad] and [Votive] .

Dammit, Pomona. I'm so sorry.

((Pomona's friend)) - hope she'll pardon the liberty...

[Votive] and [Mad] indeed.

I utterly inadequately apologize.
