Tomorrow was going to be the second round of chemo but my blood test showed my platelet count is too low for my heart condition to manage chemo. Been sick since last Friday and tried the nausea pills prescribed and they work but since no one really reads all your records, the prescription conflicts with another condition I have. Or is actually the wrong drug or apparently any other reason that suits the moment.

I can’t survive this sloppy treatment so tomorrow I’ll stop cancer treatments until answers are given to me. It being summer (vacations) and my being out of town, I never get a chance to talk to anyone with any responsibility which means I’m being given diffferent stories by assistants of assistants and it’s time to go back to the source. The only way to get attention is to refuse treatment–nothing else get you more than reassurance.

In spite of being now close to having an incident with my heart while on chemo, the consensus seems to be I’m “over-reacting” to being prescribed the wrong drug. All I can do is defend myself as best I can. This is what having no voice eventually leads to.
