Hi there! This is my first post....it's nice to find a place to talk and hopefully learn from others who have already been there.
I am now in the Tamoxifen phase. At first, it was okay, just a hot flash now and then...now, it seems like the effects are worsening. More emotions, forgetfulness, and general air-headedness. I find that I have a short temper (unlike me)...and I can also cry uncontrollably at the drop of a hat.
So, just wondering... is anyone else here or made it through this phase...and how did you do it? I made it through chemo, surgery and radiation with the best attitude and upbeat thoughts...now it seems to be crashing all around me. Did anyone else hit bottom afterwards?
Now everyone around me thinks I should be fine now.
I don't know that I consider myself out of treatment....Tamoxifen is kicking my butt!
