It will be five years in November since my diagnosis of stage four breast cancer with bone mets. Although my meds have kept me pretty much stable, I'm experiencing severe pain in my left hip, pelvic area and ribs. These are the areas I have mets. I'm taking dilauded and wear a fentynal patch for the pain. There are days it's bearable and days I can barely function. I'm on lexapro for the depression and mood swings, but, I'm finding it more difficult to pull myself out of the depressive funk I get in. I get to the point where I can't take it and wish I hadn't survived this long.
Although people say they understand, they really don't unless they've gone through it.
I'm looking to talk to people who are going through the same thing and who understand the mind set of living with MBC.
