Days after announcing to her fans that her cancer had spread into her lymph nodes from her breasts, actress Shannen Doherty took to her Instagram to tell the world about her struggle with chemotherapy.

“Each persons cancer journey is different,” Doherty writes.

“For me, chemo has been terrible and believe me, we have tried almost everything. So days like this have become a bit of the norm. I’m learning that it’s ok to fall into bed and give in to the exhaustion or nausea or aches.”

“I’ve learned a lot of that thru all the beautiful people who have shared their personal stories with me right here on Instagram,” Doherty writes.

“Thank you. Btw, it doesn’t hurt to have#msbowie comfort me So back to my nap. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes and stories. They help so much.#blessed 📸 by #mamarosa

Earlier in the week Doherty spoke to “Entertainment Tonight” about the lessons she’s learned about life thanks to her battle.

“You realize how many people in the world are going through the same struggle as you and that you have such a larger family than you thought,” she said.

“Because the cancer family is a really large family, and they’re wonderful and embracing and so willing to share their own story with you — and also inspire you and be inspired by you. That amount of love has changed me, it’s just made me appreciate people. I always did, but it’s like a new kind of appreciation.”
