How chemotherapy might affect your everyday life

Even though chemotherapy treatment can cause unpleasant side effects, some people still manage to lead an almost normal life during their treatment. The chemotherapy may make you feel better, by relieving the symptoms of the cancer. Even if you feel unwell during your course of treatment, you may find that you recover quickly between courses and can take up your usual activities again as you begin to feel better.

You may be able to go to work and carry on with your social activities as usual, but may need to take rests during the day or shorten your working hours.

Some people feel very tired during chemotherapy. This is quite normal and may be caused by the drugs themselves and your body fighting the disease, or may simply be because you are not sleeping well. For someone who normally has a lot of energy, feeling tired all the time can be very frustrating and difficult to cope with. The hardest time may be towards the end of the course of chemotherapy.

Try to cut down on any unnecessary activities and ask your family or friends to help you with jobs such as shopping and housework. It is important not to fight your tiredness. Give yourself time to rest and if you are still working see if it is possible to reduce your hours while you are having treatment. If you are having problems with sleeping, your GP may be able to prescribe sleeping online pharmacy viagra for you. Cancerbackup can send you information on dealing with sleeping problems.

Social life

While you are having chemotherapy you may find that you cannot do some of the things you used to take for granted. But you needn't stop your social life completely. Depending on how well you feel, there is no reason to stop going out or visiting friends, especially if you can plan ahead for social occasions. For example, if you are going out for the evening, you could make sure that you get plenty of rest during the day so you have more energy for the evening. If you are planning to go out for a meal, you may find it helpful to take anti-sickness tablets before you go and to choose your food carefully from the menu.

If you have an important social event (such as a wedding) coming up, discuss with your doctor whether the time of your treatment can be changed so that you can feel as well as possible for the occasion.


For most people, having the occasional alcoholic drink will not affect the chemotherapy treatment, but it is best to check with your doctor beforehand.

Holidays and vaccinations

If you are going abroad on holiday, it is important to remember that you should not have any 'live virus' vaccines while you are having chemotherapy. These include polio, measles, rubella (German measles), MMR (the triple vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella), BCG (tuberculosis), yellow fever and typhoid medicine. There are, however, vaccines that you can have, if necessary. If you are travelling abroad, ask your doctor whether you should have other vaccines such as diphtheria, tetanus, flu, hepatitis B, hepatitis A, rabies, cholera or typhoid injection.

Sometimes people who have, or have had, cancer can find it difficult to get travel insurance to travel abroad. Cancerbackup has a list of insurance companies that may offer travel insurance for people with cancer. You may find it difficult to get travel insurance while you are actually having chemotherapy, but once your treatment is complete this is usually less of a problem.

Viagra Coffee

This elderly lady went to the doctor for a checkup. Everything checked out fine. The old lady pulled the doctor to the side and said, "Doctor, I haven't had sex for years now, and I was wondering how I can increase my husband's sex drive."

The doctor smiled and said, "Have you tried to give him online pharmacy?"

The lady frowned. "Doctor, I can't even get him to take aspirin when he has a headache," she claimed.

"Well," the doctor continued, "let me suggest something. Crush the Viagra into a powder. When you are giving him coffee, stir it into the coffee and serve it. He won't notice a thing."

The old lady was delighted. She left the doctor's office quickly.

Weeks later the old lady returned. She was frowning and the doctor asked her what was wrong. She shook her head.

"How did it go?" the doctor asked.

"Terribly, doctor, terribly."

"Did it not work?"

"Yes," the old lady said, "It worked. I did as you said and he got up and ripped his clothes off right then and there and we made mad love on the table. It was the best sex that I'd had in 25 years."

"Then what is the problem, ma'am?"

"Well," she said. "I can't ever show my face in McDonald's again."

Efecte secundare Viagra

Foarte putine medicamente functioneaza "perfect",iar cheap cialis nu este o exceptie.Aproape fiecare medicament are efecte adverse,care apar din cauza ca medicamentul se raspandeste in tot organismul,si poate afecta si alte parti decat cele pentru care a fost initial folosit.

De exemplu,aspirina este un medicament care amelioreaza durerea,si este antiimflamator,dar pe langa aceste efecte poate eroda mucoasa stomacului,si subtieaza sangele.

Si Viagra are efecte adverse,de care pacientii trebuie sa fie constienti.

Prima problema provine de la faptul ca Viagra,pe langa PDE5,mai are efect si asupra lui PDE6.PDE6 este folosit in celulele conice din retina,deci Viagra poate avea efecte negative in privinta vederii colorate.

Multi barbati care au administrat Viagra au observat o schimbare in felul in care vad culoarea verde sau albastra,sau vad lumea in nuanta albastra.Pentru acest motiv pilotii de avioane nu pot administra Viagra cu mai putin de 12 ore inaintea zborului.

O alta problema este pentru cei care administreaza medicamente cum ar nitroglicerina,pentru tratamentul anginei pectorale.Nitroglicerina functioneaza prin marirea nivelului oxidului nitric din organism,astfel ajuta la dechiderea arterelor care furnizeaza oxigen catre inima.Daca administrezi nitroglicerina si viagra impreuna,nivelul crescut de oxid nitric,impreuna cu blocarea PDE5 poate cauza probleme.

Alte probleme inrudite cu viagra sunt durerile de cap (la unii barbati,viagra relaxeaza si unele arterel din creier,rezultand o presiune excesiva la acel nivel),si probleme mai mari cum ar fi atacul de cord.

Din cauza posibilatatii unui atac de cord,Viagra este un medicament care este prescris de catre medic.Medicul trebuie sa cunoasca istoria sanatatii tale,si sa se asigure ca Viagra nu iti va provoca atac de cord.Uneori cei care administreaza Viagra® se plang de erectii foarte puternice si dureroase,si apeleaza la un medic pentru rezolvarea problemei.

In final,sunt anumite ingrijorari din cauza tinerilor care administreaza Viagra fara a avea nevoie de ea.Acestia pot deveni dependenti de acest medicament,fiind incapabili sa mentina o erectie fara administrarea Viagrei.

Burundanga business cards ... Is it True. Are you in Danger?
Burundanga business cards ... Is it True. Are you in Danger?

Hi Mel,
I hope this is a bit helpful to you. What I have found ( and this is not totally conclusive) but I think it can serve as a fairly good guide. If I discover other situations I will let you know, as far as the Burundanga business card thing goes. You are wise to note that you weren't sure if it was right or not. I am sure you will be relive to know that it is not true. To have a potent psychoactive dose on a business card; that would have to be some powerful s_ _t!
When stories get out of hand like this it is known as a "Urban Myth". It is nothing but people just not knowing or at worst fear mongering based on a half truth. A far as I can tell, you have nothing to worry about with business cards. The active alkaloid in burundanga is scopolamine which has been known and used by medicine for years. It’s nothing new.
But there is much more to say. This drug (scopolamine) is real but one would need a much stronger dose to have the alleged effect. If it is in a drink or ingested in some manner is a very different matter. The rest I am sure you know, probably more about than I do. But it is interesting to know that women use these drugs on men; not for sex but for money. The abuse is apparently wide spread in Columbia where 1 in 5 poisoning cases at the hospital is from scopolamine poisoning. Norway is a lot closer to home for you in Germany which has had 20 documented cases where Rohypnol (Rohypnol comes as a pill that dissolves in liquids. Some are small, round, and white. Newer pills are oval and green-gray in color. When slipped into a drink, a dye in these new pills makes clear liquids turn bright blue and dark drinks turn cloudy. But this color change might be hard to see in a dark drink, like cola or dark beer, or in a dark room. Also, the pills with no dye are still available. The pills may be ground up into a powder) purchase cialis contain scopolamine. Either way if someone has ingested rohypnol, scopolamine or something similar, they could have a problem. This is what you need to be acutely aware of. I've included a few links for you in case you want to look into this more.

I highly recommend you go to:

FYI Where I live here in the Arizona desert we have this plant they talk about. It has several names; Jimson Weed, Local Weed, Sacred Datura, and others. It has been used by the Native American Indians for centuries as a ritual ceremony. It is very dangerous if abused and can cause insanity. Hence the names. I don't know about Jimson, maybe he's crazy. I don't know. But the stories go that many miners were, some we are sure because of the Jimson Weed. It does have a very strong pungent and (and maybe intoxicating) smell when cut. It always reminded me of an interesting peanut butter (a little bit seductive) and yes the smell is almost enough to send you somewhere. The plant grows surprisingly fast and large all in one season. It is soft and fleshy and one chop with a spade kills it. Then you smell it. It has the most beautiful lily white trumpet shaped flowers.
Doctors have used and chemical alkaloid, scopolamine at one time to assist birthing mothers with the delivery of her child. I had a number of beneficial effects for her. Mostly she forgot about it all because it can cause amnesia.

Indeed, the quantity of toxin diffusing through the skin barrier after one short contact of the fingers with an object is much too small to be readily absorbed in the body and to have any significant effect.
In recent years the criminal use of scopolamine has become epidemic in Colombia. Approximately one in five emergency room admissions for poisoning in Bogotá have been attributed to scopolamine.[14] In a bizarre case, a band of female thieves would impregnate their breasts with scopolamine and then would lure potential victims to lick their nipples. "Losing all willpower, the men readily gave up their bank access codes. The breast-temptress thieves then held them hostage for days while draining their accounts."[15] In June 2008, more than 20 people were hospitalized with psychosis in Norway after ingesting counterfeit Rohypnol cialis containing scopolamine. [3] There have been many reports of tourists robbed after having scopolamine slipped into drinks in bars, as well as food saturated with scopolamine being served to tourists in fast-food stands in various Asian countries. Most recently, these incidents have been reported in Thailand. [16]

Popular culture
The fictional use of scopolamine as a truth serum is featured in a number of works including Farewell, My Lovely, Where Eagles Dare and The Guns of Navarone. In 1957, scopolamine achieved a moderate level of notoriety via its mention in the film I Was a Teenage Werewolf, where Dr. Alfred Brandon uses it as part of his endeavor to regress the titular character to his "primitive roots." According to Dr. Liz Kingsley's film review site And You Call Yourself a Scientist, Brandon's line "Prepare the scopolamine!" is "the only scientifically accurate line in the whole film." In Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson, Dr. Gonzo mentions an incident in which he was given an entire datura root as a gift, ate the entire thing at once, and subsequently went blind, had to be taken back to his house in a wheelbarrow, and started making noises like a raccoon. In Carlos Castaneda's series of books The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge, the datura plant is the favored shamanic, revelatory drug of the titular character. The book explores, in depth, Castaneda's alleged experiences under the influence of the drug, as well as the alleged rites surrounding its use and preparation. It was also used as an interrogation tool during Episode 9 of NBC's Kidnapped (TV series). It was also featured in the season 10 episode "Smut" of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit wherein a rapist was using the drug to prevent the women he raped from resisting him and from forming memories.
