Wednesday I had a visit with “my” Oncologist. As you know, I have tried three different “Estrogen Blocking drugs” and with all three, I had serious side effects. Twice I wound up in the Hospital with chest pain. The other drug gave me such bad depression, I quit after one week.
I explained all this to the doctor.
She still insists I try another one.
She called the prescription into the drug store, er, pharmacy, but I have not chosen to pick it up yet. I have spent the last two days in a funk, oversleeping, eating ice cream and binge-watching Wayward Pines. After spending the last 5 months eating healthy, exercising and losing 25 pounds, I have been sent back into a spiral.
The thought of force-feeding myself another drug which will most likely send me into the hospital again has upset me. Although my doctor insists that “if the cancer comes back, it will not be in the breast this time, it will be the bones, or another organ” I just can’t force myself into chest pains again.
Someone has told me that Thyme Oil is a natural cancer preventive, so I am looking into how to buy that.
Meanwhile, please beam up some prayers for me. I know I am not handling this as well as I should.
