Tamoxiphen Scurge

Type: 
Article
Description: 

The scurg of gaining weight, while on the chemo drug Tamoxifen, is happening with more patients lately. It is mainly just a maintence drug the doctors put you on when there is nothing else they can do about your cancer. I have ovarian cancer but am stable now but I am on Tamoxiphen. My doctor told me that the main side effect is gaining weight. He sure was right. I gained 70 lbs in 6 mos.. That is all the doctor seemed to be concerned about. They are good doctors but never mentioned weight control. Being in this state I let the weight come on because I was ready to die. Cancer means death but as the weight came on I became one of the walking dead and I am only 54 years old. I asked myself what would Jesus do in this situation? Would he just sit around and let it happen. No! I got my mind organized, realized I was helping death come with my weight and did something about it. I am in my 2nd week with Weight Watches. I have lost 7 lbs. and 2 Inches around my belly. I have more energy and I just enjoy the company of the meetings. So Please consider joining. It is worth the money.

Surviving Breast Cancer; There Is A Child Within Us

Type: 
Article
Description: 

I wrote this book as a means to help me heal emotionally and I wanted to share my journey with others to let them know that they are not alone. Survivorship is a long and difficult path. It is a state of mind that is dictated by oneself and not others. After the surgery and treatments are over we find that speration anxiety can take control, and we have to learn how to survive on our own. Friends, co-workers, and sometimes families think that every thing is back to normal. Nothing could be further from the truth.We learn that nothing will ever be normal again, and we learn how to rediscover ourselves and our life.

I have also developed a web page; www.survivngbreastcancer.com. Enjoy and share your journey.
