Annette Posted July 21, 2011 Share Posted July 21, 2011 I may have made a mistake by taking myself off my antidepressant medications. I am just so tired to taking drugs everyday. I am feeling very low - I started working for my company in 1985 (technically before I was born since I am only 29 - LOL). One of my bosses' wife had breast cancer 16 years ago and had a lumpectomy and radiation. I found out yesterday that they performed a double mastectomy last week because the cancer was back with a vengeance in both breasts. They won't be able to do radiation because of the damage done the first time. I don't really know what the follow-up to surgery will be - but it just sucks because she is a wonderful person. I told her husband that everything will be alright because since he retired 4 years ago he has been volunteering for the cancer center and driving patients to get chemo. He said he has a new understanding of how hard it is to deal with the disease (cancer) with support - much less with no one to go with you. He doesn't have to sit with them as part of the volunteer program - he just does. If you have a few extra prayers I'm sure that John and Carol would appreciate them. Thanks for listening...
