Hello, I was originally diagnosed in 2007 with stage 2b. After mastectomy, lymph removal, and chemo, I was told I was “cured”. Wow. In 2010, I had a bone met in my sternum. Radiation,. In 2012 I had a met in my lung...change up drugs. Then 5 glorious years. In 2016, the same bone met reappeared. I reradiated. Then another lung met in later 2017, to which I am now taking Tykerb, arimidex, and Zolodex. I find myself tired. Emotionally, brain tired. I don’t want to fight anymore. This disease is taking me down and I don’t know how to stop the slippery slope.
How do y’all stay positive? I am normally a fighter, have fought this for 10 years. But this time, I am so tired. I cry all the time. I am 45, generally feel ok, but I can’t snap myself back. Everything seems to be falling apart. I just put my 16yo dog to sleep. I miss her terribly. My husband doesn’t understand. I am spiritual, but feel very empty. Thank for letting me vent,
