The Complicated and the Simple
The complicated version of my treatment regimen of the moment is: Rituximab, Cytoxan, Doxorubicin, Vincristine and Prednisone. Slightly less complicated is the acronym: R-CHOP. Simply put: "chemotherapy". Radiation will undoubtedly be a factor, but we're not there yet.
The complicated version is that I'm a forty-year old divorced mother of two teenaged kids. I have a full time job I'd like to get back to. I have a mortgage. I have hobbies, vocations and avocations. I have friends and family. I have responsibilities to myself and others. I'd like to think I have potential not yet realized.
Slightly less complicated is the phrase: I have quite a lot to live for.
Simply put: I don't actually want to die.
