What an awesome group we have on our T train. I'm so glad we'll have each other to lean on and learn from.
Harley - sorry to hear about the RLS and insomnia with the higher Effexor dose. I'm glad you can handle the lower dose. I don't know what I would do if the Ativan didn't help me sleep at night. My children are not very sympathetic when I don't want to get out of bed in the morning. lol
Layne - loved your ovulating story. Congrats on finishing rads! How is your skin doing?
MOTC - how long did the bleeding last? I really don't want to have a period that lasts forever, not that I have any choice in the matter. I guess anything is possible with Tamoxifen.
Lisa - I spent my childhood in Youngstown, Ohio. My dad was born and raised there. I'm glad your hot flashes come in handy with the weather. It would be nice if we could at least control when we have a hot flash, then we'd never be cold again. You're running???!!! Wow, I feel tired just thinking about running. I guess I should push myself more.
Basha - your cupcakes sound so good! I told a friend about them and she said she'd have to put a peanut butter cup on top. lol Sorry, probably tmi.
lisettemac - welcome to our group. That's awful about the nausea, but I'm glad it eventually went away. I so did not want to have that particular side effect - it was one of the worst parts of being pregnant for me. And, I don't eat when I'm nauseous, so not eating for a couple of months would be bad. lol
Is anyone's white count still low? Mine was 2.3 a couple of weeks ago and I still have a mouth sore. I wonder how long before my body starts to recover from chemo/rads. It's funny, but my rad onc said my low wt count is from chemo, and my med onc says it's from rads. I say it's from both of them, thank you very much.
Have a good evening, all!
