    Going for my second radiation treatment today.

    I can see this getting tiring. 3 times a week for 9 weeks. I really wish I had someone to go with me. It's only about a 45 minute drive, but it seems so long by myself. I hate feeling lonely and unloved. And soon I'm sure I'll be looking like a freak.
