Can anyone relate?

I am 35 years old and was diagnosed with stage four cancer with unknown primary in April of 2015. I was given 8-10 months because I had cancer in my lung, lymph nodes near my heart and I had 30-40 masses in my liver. I was placed on carboplatin/taxol chemo that worked very well. I went through 5 treatments and the doc wanted to give me a break because I was losing feeling in my hands and feet. I was put on a drug called Tarceva for a few months and I began to feel strange so I requested an early scan. Come to find out. All of my masses grew back and now I am on docitaxol chemotherapy. I just want to know if it's unrealistic for me to hope for remission. I also want to know if I should expect my body to weaken through time. i am very scared of the future at this point and am hoping To connect with a few people so I can find either some peace of mind or at least a plan of action. Thanks.
