Hi Rachael, just wanted to send you good wishes on your tx. Not everyone gets the side effects so let't hope they are mild for you. I have heard of mild sx and some days I almost feel normal, not today lol
but maybe tomorrow
I tll myself, "it will be beter tomorrow"
thanks for the note. i had a great time fishing in the sierra's. i felt somewhat normal the whole time up there. i think i was too busy to notice sx. since i've been home i've had some bad days and great days. not sure how long i have to go but my study nurse said i'll know at 24 weeks. right now i'm at week 15. good luck on starting your journey. i wish you the best!! remember to drink LOTS of water. it really helps!!! keep me posted. belle
