Study suggests mental fog, fatigue tied to chemotherapy may be partly due to stress

I had 'mental fog' & fatigue weeks before my seizure, which led to my diagnosis. (GBM)

.... part 2:I also had extreme mood-swings during those weeks.

I can answer this very easily BECAUSE CHEMOTHERAPY makes the CANCER REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I was fine with the double masectomy, even my breast cancer diagnoses at age 44, the drains pain and all. But once they told me i have to have chemo, I lost it....all rational thoughts were gone....I did not want to do it, and even though i am doing it ( i was told i must) I hate it so much, it makes you depressed, sad , in a lot of pain and of course it messes with your head. If it doesnt there is something wrong with you. I would rather have another surgery than chemo.

I had a stage IV GBM six years ago, and never paniced because my astrologer told me it wasn't going to kill me, and after emergency surgery followed by concurrent radiation and chemo I have kept it from coming back with the Budwig diet (see Bill Henderson's book "How to cure almost any cancer at home for $5.15 a day" combined with following Otto Warburg's findings; google "Cancer loves sugar", and maintaining an alkaline pH. But when I went off the diet and dietary regimen, my MRI showed the tumor starting to grow again, so I went right back on with NO CHEATING! and the cancer disappeared.
