So here I am.  Out of active treatment.  Found out that looking forward to "it getting easier" and "getting back to a "normal" hasn't happened.  Instead, I discovered that the journey only began - that I will forever fight this disease, my mental health continues to be challenged and making "changes" to avoid reoccurance just makes me feel like Cancer gets to control my quality...screwed up, right?

So, here it is...Fuzzy's Romp Room.  I'm so ready to drop F Bombs and smack stupid people for the insensitive crap that they say and do.  I'm sick of medications "getting me through."  I have had just about enough of people on the other side who just don't get it, yet feel they need to say something to make a cancer patient "feel better about themselves" or whatever that reasoning is...

I'm hoping that this thread will just give a place to be 100% open.  I do love to write, and I do love all of my sisters here.  I do not want to offend anyone, ever.  I just need to let it out...feel free to do the same.  I thought by opening up my own thread, it would keep me from offending anyone else on thread's that they have built.  I'm just such a friggin' mess and I need some help to get it together ...

Fuzzy's Romp Room comes complete with padded walls, restrictive clothing/accessories (for the really bad days) and an endless supply of love to all of ya all.  Believe it or not, I do have tons of love and forgiveness in my heart ... it's just my head that's a wreck.

Crog- I was on gabepentin /neurontin for only a month  after the brain surgery. Stopped after the prescription ended. No untoward response. But that I think is different then long term use . It's a search project. Call your pharmacist for guidance first even before doc. They know the drugs better than the doc's. Take the pharmacists info to the doc and then talk.

Fuzzy --bummer missed your call, out to church. Glad to hear you were feeling better.  Please, Effexor is a BITCH to get off of, BUT at least we know we are talking SSNRI. EFFEXOR seems to have the worst reputation for getting off of. Your MH doc has reason to be worried. 20 days is not enough. 75 mgs every other day is not the best approach either. You are dealing with a Selective Serotonin Norepinephrine Re-uptake Inhibitor. By doing it every other day you are offering the brain a block for the re-uptake of Serotonin. So, on one day it's happy --then the level falls. The brain reacts. "DUH what have you done--where's my Serotonin". You are creating and up and down------so, your brain feel's really screwy. We talk about messing with estrogen levels. Serotonin makes estrogen a minor player by comparison.

Don't want to scare you, but this will----My Dh's MO told him to quit Zoloft(ssri). I said he had to wean over several weeks , best no more than 5 mg per week . He ignored me and weaned over 8 days, at levels that I told him he was going to get into trouble with. Within 24-48 hrs after last dose he lost all feeling in arms and legs. Subsequent testing showed he would regain feeling in muscles, but would never regain feeling in his skin.  His Mo blamed it on Chemo, but he was post chemo by six weeks.  He was post Zoloft(ssri) by < than 48 hours. Cause and effect. ---Some of the worst words from my Dh were "I can see myself petting Schatzi, but I feel nothing".

I agree , you should never have been put on it, but now you have to prevent permanent damage to you by getting off of it. That's why I posted all the SSRI's and SSNRI's --doc's take these drugs to complacently. They haven't taken them, they just prescribe, based on PDR, Journals, etc.

I will try a search on a realistic approach to discontinuing. But your approach of cold turkey is not good. It's not the same as cutting out other drugs-----this is a brain neurotransmitter. World of difference.

BTW---i blew in with out the above info to try to make you understand the seriousness of what you were doing . SpecialK---comes in with her beautiful description of ----I was ready to sleep by the time I got done reading her post. AHHHH spk-------you are such a treasure

Hi ladies. Ive been away for a while, and I've missed a ton here. Work has been keeping me so busy, not to mention everything going on with end of school stuff, recitals, etc.

We have our town's Relay for Life on Saturday and I'm hoping I can participate. My exchange is Wednesday, so I'm super excited. But I wanted to let you all know I'm dedicating a luminaria to all my BCO sisters. You have been the most incredible support system over the past 5 months, and I don't know if I could have done it without you. So this is my way of saying thanks, and I love you all.

I hope you are all feeling well and enjoying the start to the summer. I miss you guys when I not here for a few days so I'm just popping in to say hi. I'll let you know how the exchange goes. I'm ready to get rid of these horrid TE's!

Hi, Ladies...long time no post.

Spelling Errors - an intern in our office once sent out flyers all over the university about a Public Event. You guessed it...he left out the "L"...

Glasses - I can no longer afford $500 for a pair of glasses (no more vision insurance) so I get all my new glasses at Zenni.com.  Prices start at $6.95 - and that is for frame AND lens. You'll need your prescription and your PD (pupillary distance - the measurement between your pupils) to order. You can "try on" glasses on several different types of faces. Hint: set up an account and add frames you like to your "Favorites" or else you'll get lost amongst the 4,000 pairs they have. I ordered a really cheap pair to start, and had my Optometrist check them. He said the prescription was spot on.

Diet - I'm on Optifast through Kaiser (open also to non-Kaiser members). Has worked VERY well for me - I'm down 40 pounds from my highest (pre-BC) weight.

Rigid, stupid employers - Start each sentence with the words "My attorney has advised me...."

Weather - last week it was 104 degrees. Put away the winter clothes. Today it's 64 degrees, windy, rainy, and cold. Wearing shorts with a big fleece lumberjack shirt. Hey, it's a look.....

Embarrassing accidents - my broken thumb is healing. Won't lose the nail after all. Sure is hard to text, though...

Big comfort hugs and healing prayers for all those going through challenges these days...

P.S. I did NOT fart.

Hey SpecialK. Ah, the birds went to Grammy's house for a week, while I went to visit a friend in North Carolina. Grammy made them all stay in the cage all week, so they were enjoying their freedom today. Thanks for asking.

Blessings, thanks for the tip about the glasses. That may come in very handy for me.

I'm turning in my resignation tomorrow. Excuse me if I have already mentioned this. My head is all over the place. My stomach is in knots. I barely know what I am doing. Maybe I don't know what I am doing. LOL. I am hoping that I will calm down at least a little after I let my boss know I am leaving. I still don't know what kind of income I will be getting, but I do know that I will qualify for food stamps. Wow. It just sucks to come this far in life only to end up so far below where I started out. Oh well. I guess it is how I did my life. Still, I would love to scream at my boss how he ruined my life. But he probably wouldn't care. So, my best revenge is to not let him ruin my life. I will take my retirement and make do with whatever I get. If I have to walk away from my house and mortgage, that's what I will do. I'll just do whatever I have to do to survive. Probably, my mom's neighbor would be willing to take the birds if I am unable to take care of them. But I just have to wait and see. I'm just not a good wait and see kind of person, at least not when I am scared. I suppose this will be a growth experience.

Supposedly whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Frankly, I take issue with that. LOL  Back in 1999 I was shot while driving down the road. It was a random act of violence and I was only hit in the leg. However, to this day I am terrified when someone pulls up next to me on the road. So, I don't see how that made me stronger. There are other examples, but that makes my point.

Gosh, I'm in the countdown now: only 19 more days of work to go. It will actually be even less, since I have doctor's appointments (shrink, PT, 3 month surgery follow up) that I will take off. For those who pray, please pray that I am able to keep my big whiney mouth shut and not say or do anything inappropriate. I'm in the final stretch, and if I behave, I will make it.

DUNE, your talk of birds reminded me of Judy Collins' rendition of "Where the time goes."  The part I occasionally recall is something like, "So come the storms of winter, and then the birds in spring again, I do not count the time."  Dune, I really feel for you, kid, and your whole blasted work thing.  But you'll feel free when you leave, and suddenly the whole wide world is yours.  This is following a healthy time wallowing on the couch in front of the TV, of course!  Glad you can get the food at least.  Most people as they age downsize in their stuff, so no biggy.  And glad resignation goes in today, we'll all be in your pocket for that one.  GG

Fuzzy, if you haven't read those links please do. The first link gives a way to safely decrease and switching to Prozac for the last couple of weeks. Serotonin/norepinephrine take awhile to regenerate to a normal level. There will be an absence of these neurotransmitters, The body can't handle that. It's not like getting off narcotics/alcohol/or cigarettes. Someone mentioned serotonin withdrawal syndrome. I'll try to edit with the description.

Here is something for you all to pass around to the various groups you belong to:Please join us on Monday, June 25th or Tuesday, June 26th for an important free webinar: Take Back Our Genes: Ending the Patent on Breast Cancer Genes to learn about how one company's control of the "breast cancer genes" creates barriers to research and testing that could endanger your health and compromise the healthcare of hundreds of thousands of women.

In 2009, Breast Cancer Action signed on as a plaintiff in the lawsuit challenging Myriad Genetics' patents on our genes. The lawsuit, filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Public Patent Foundation, challenges the legality of the patents that grant Myriad Genetics control over the BRCA1 and BRCA2 (the "breast cancer") genes.

Myriad's monopoly prevents anyone else from so much as examining the genes, and creates barriers to scientific research and medical care relating to breast and ovarian cancer. It also limits women's ability to get second opinions when they receive ambiguous test results, which happens disproportionately to women from ethnic minorities, including African-Americans, Hispanics and Asian-Americans.

Breast Cancer Action is the only national breast cancer organization named as a plaintiff in the lawsuit. We are able to take this stand because we have no conflicts of interest: we don't take money from companies that profit from or contribute to cancer, and because our work demands that patients must always come before profits.

The webinar will be presented by BCAction's executive director Karuna Jaggar, Sandra Park, Staff Attorney for the Women's Rights Project at the ACLU and Runi Limary, breast cancer survivor and plaintiff. Topics we'll cover include:

Why BCAction opposes gene patenting and why the issue is important for women
The impact of gene patenting on underserved communities
The current status of the ACLU's lawsuit challenging the legality of patents on human genes
Real stories of women's experiences with gene patenting
How you can get involved

Join us on Monday June 25th 3pm PDT/6pm EDT or Tuesday June 26th 10am PDT/1pm EDT for this free one-hour webinar to hear the real story about the effects of gene patents on women's health and to join us in opposing corporate control over our bodies, our genes, and our health.

Just some random thoughts of a long ago government action. This will probably be covered in the webinar. Our US Congress allowed the patenting of genes b/c it was seen at the time as "an only" way to promote the research in all things genetic.. It was a financial incentive, to get entities to search out genetic causes of disease. Our government supported research universities and were given government funding to do the research and then patent the rights, but these rights didn't go to the people. They went to private researchers and corporations --paid for by tax dollars. Then we as taxpayers(plus our insurance companies) turn around and have to pay thousands of dollars for testing. This lawsuit is way late in coming. It may be difficult to get a positive adjudication for the people(us) b/c of the law that was written by congress(and lobbyist). But by history, our laws and governing have been changed by the WILL OF THE PEOPLE. Listening to this webinar, may guide us to that end.

I'm really feeling good about turning in my retirement notice. I have a few more papers to have filled out (by my bank, by my boss, and by me). Just those 3 and then hope the docs send their's in. I had no second thoughts about this today. I am certain I made the right decision.
