My husband and I don't have children, we have "furbabies" instead. Only those who are "animal people" can understand how much my 3 rescue dogs have helped me through this ordeal. They snuggle with me when I'm depressed or scared. They make me laugh when I'm down, and most of all, they love me unconditionally. Breasts or no breasts, they don't see me any differently, and that's more than I can say for most of the people in my life.

Well, dang... I will give this a try again... I made a mistake last time when I tried posting here.

I love everyone's furkids!!  I am owned by a half Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (and part Yorkie-Poo) named Maddie... she is my whole world.

My guinea pig is the only living creature I have in my life/home 24/7. Bro lives too far away, don't get on much with fam, and my one bf 6 miles away is too busy with her own life/fam issues so I see her now maybe once a month. It's been 5 weeks now. During dx and txs bro and bf paid more attention to me. Seems now even though I have se issues and such, they don't show as much. Sucks when you live literally alone.

Dx'd at 50. Doing it all, all by myself. Stopped Letrozole after 5 weeks. Debilitating se's. Back on Tamox now.

I have, should say had 3 furbabies. Lost Reggie, my oldest, ten days ago. He was the middle sized dog, a beagle/Australian shepherd mix. Still have my big dog, Oliver, an 82 pound boxer, and Cookie Dough, a 16 pound Pekachon (Pekingese/Bichon Frieze). When everyone stopped visiting, they took wonderful care of me. They all made sure to check on me and love on me whenever they could. The love on their faces really helps.
