I don't know if this is helpful, but I simply had my hair shaved off. Seemed less torturose somehow…

My doctor has prescribed Gabapentin, 1200mg. twice a day. Not perfect, but it really helps.
Merry, you are a great excuse maker. Your comments make me feel better. One time years ago, before NHL I drove to the gym, sat there in my car and then went home! Crazy. Now I am back, but it is an effort, as you now. Hang in there. gp
Great shirt and nice photo. My friend sent me a poem when I was in chemo with a roaring tiger (my nickname)
Fate whispers to the warrior,
"You can not withstand the storm."
The warrior whispers back,
"I am the storm."
Hang in there. gp
Thanks to everybody for checking in. After surgery and chemo in 2017 for stage 1 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma found on a fluke, my doc in January 2019 says I am cured and just need yearly checkups with PET scan, unless I have symptoms. So I feel pretty good, but worry about recurrences no matter what he says. I hope all of you do well. You all sound so much more challenged and braver than I feel that I have been. Hang in there, Warriors. gp
Oddly enough, I was able to exercise throughout my R-CHOP for Non hodgkins lymphoma in 2017 but now am having more trouble staying active. Recently, however, I have decided that my Bipolar, in a deperessive episode, has contributed to my stuborness regarding exercise. So my Psych Doc changed my meds, and I am back in the gym! I hope this lasts long enough for me to get back in the habit. Thanks, gp
