    thanks to all for offers to cook, the offer means a lot to me.

    Funny i woke up this morning and felt blessed to have the friends that i do and to have the health insurance and savings that i do. I have help that comes in to clean, i get my groceries delivered. I have the absolute greatest neighbors. I still drive although not long distances.

    Life is pretty good

    Iris, that is good that you have people to help you.

    I have that with some women iin my neighborhood. They take me to my testing and to doctors appointments in town. They are all retired and so they volunteered to help when they saw me taking buses to appointments or having my hubby take a day off to take me.

    Loved reading some of this stuff. New to the site so haven't read too far back but doesn't everyone love when you get "oh you're getting a free pair of beatiful boobs, I want to get implants". Oh yeah I'm so happy I had to go through all this to get boobs people Devil Just want to slap people sometimes! Smile

    Hope everyone is doing well

    LiveLove, sorry you have had to join this crowd, but glad you found this site. It will be a wealth of info and support for you. Yes, people are so stupid....I got that response....you can get perky boobs! You should have seen their faces when I told them I was going flat. They looked at me like I surely had dementia. Hang out here and you won’t get those stupid responses!

    LomLin, I really hate that one. Sometimes I think others feel like I’m being dramatic when I tell them the best they will say is NED. Some even say, “ so cured.“.Dumb asses.

    Once you're no longer on radiation, people think you're fine, that you bounce back. But what they don't realize is that your body has been through something so incredibly difficult that your body never fully bounces back. I don't look at it as being in remission, I look at it like I'm lucky to be able to wake up to another day.

    I need that shock collar. Thanks ducky

    NED is definetly another one yogatyme

    proudtospin yes never done with treatment. Like now I am on tamoxifen, I fear my doctor will tell me another 5 years after the first 5 years of being on it. Right now in year two.

    I had 38 radiation ..8 of which were boosts...went through it with flying colors.....2 weeks later I thought I was run over by a Semi........I went on Femara/Letrozole...the SE’s were so bad I stopped taking it after 4 years...they said 5....and I know damn well they were headed to tell me 10.....the SE’s I had never completely went away......so...so much for medicine getting ‘out of your system in 3 days....and how about Neuropathy, lymphedema, skin so dried out you itch like a monkey....not for a day/week/month....for life......so go ahead ....look at me and tell me I look great....tell me how I have survived....forget WTH I went through and still go through.....so I want that damn collar so everytime someone comes up with some Stupid comment that they think makes me feel better.....I can zap the shit out of them and then say ‘....You look fine...by the way...how did that zap feel.....well some days I feel even worse then that......Amen....
