Boy you sure have went through the wringer, and I know how tough this has been on you. Chemo can just plain knock you off your feet! Have you had any problems with severe neausea or vomiting, or have they been able to keep that pretty well in check?. mrsm123 hit upon some important points. Chemo can make your neutraphils plummet, and those are the cells in your blood that protect you from getting colds and infections, so please becareful about keeping away from any body that even appears to be sick or have a cold! I am sure that you have heard all this before. You are so young to have to go through all of this, and it is by no means a picnic! Try and be strong Buttercup, your attitude can make the difference, remember when the going gets tough, the tough get going! You have to be tough Buttercup! You have all of us here giving you our support, and I keep you in my prayers!!!
I am sorry that your parents appear to be rude to you. But you know Buttercup I bet they are just scared, frightened, and they are trying to act brave and tough for you! You now parents often put up a front, and try to act brave and stern, when really inside they are just as scared and confused about it all as you are! But they feel they can't show that, because parents are suppose to be strong, and be able to fix things for their kids! When they can't they often feel helpless and out of control, ( which in fact they really are) but they are afraid to let you know that, so they put on the stern and sometime rude appearing front! I am not excusing their actions, I am just possibly trying to maybe explain the reason for it, to you. I have raise two daughters of my own, and believe me when I tell you, your parents are really concerned about you right now, more than you probably know!
You will get through this Buttercup, I wish you all the best!
