Hi All

Yes Im alive and kicking!!! Im getting over pnemonia (sp) I was out of work for over a week with that. I had a shot for pnemonia and whooping cough last Thursday and I had an adverse reaction to it and missed 2 more days of work. I ran a temp over 101 and could not keep anything down. I still am running the temp but feel better now. My arm is bruised and feels like Magiila Gorilla slugged me!!!

I have been a little down in the dumps so I have not posted, I don't like to write to newbies when Im not as happy as I usually am.

Has anyone else had marital problems during and after all of the treatments and surgeries. We have had a very rough year and all of the medical bills have not helped much. We are not as close as we used to be and it is hard on both of us. Not to be crude but my sex drive is in the toilet thanks to going thru menopause so quickly. I had an appointment with my GP and she is going to contact my Onc about putting me on testosterone to help. Im not so sure I want to but we will see. Has anyone else had similar problems?? Any suggestions??

Thanks for thinking about me Kat & Bev  I think about all of you often and I will try to keep in better touch!

L&H to all

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well. Seems like it has been one thing after another for you. My sex drive went down the tubes also. My boy friend has been understanding. Thank goodness I didn't rack up any medical bills. The things I had done during all this were all paid for by my insurance. I din't miss much work. I guess with your surgery you and other things caused you to miss time from work. I read a story not too long ago abot a woman who had breast cancer who was doing well for herself, had to file bankruptcy because of the bills piling up and she did everything she could to try to prevent that from to moving to a smaller place etc... (not suggesting you do that) Just something that this darn disease can push you to.

This week will be my last Zoladec shot after 2 years. I am really hoping my period won't come back. I can only assume I have gone thru menopause. I have hot flashes but that's also 1 of the side effects of the Tamoxifen. My GP suggested I get a pneumonia shot also, I may have 2nd thoughts now. But he said to ask my Onc about it who I will see next month.

One thing I am pround of myself for is that I HAVE LOST 44 POUNDS since April. yeah   yeah   yeah

I joined Weigh***chers (which my doc kept pushing). I had to do something. My cholesterol was out the roof and I was one the verge of being diabetic (runs on my dads side of the family). I just went the other day for followup on my blood work (I go every 3 months) and my cholesterol has come way down and I'm also almost into the good range of not becoming a diabetic. I'm so glad I did this.

Bern, hang in there. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope that you and hubby can overcome all of this. I think about you often.
