Ta-Moxifen Or Not Ta-Moxifen?... That Is The Question

All of my cancer treatments have finally come to an end and I'm doing my HAPPY DANCE!! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can finally start living again. Now the big question was whether I was moving forward with Tamoxifen or not. My instant response was "Heck No!!". After months and months of delegating, I gave in and I'm 2 and a half weeks into taking the pill. The written side effects are really horrible, but if this means I get to continue to live a cancer free life, I will take it like a champ! So far it hasn't been too bad, just mild headaches, hot flashes and nausea. I'm really hoping it doesn't get much worse than this, because I can handle this! 

I remind myself every night I take the pill, "This pill is going to keep me cancer free". I try to be as optimistic as possible taking it, and that is the only way I can do it. 

New Year, New life and I'm so happy to be alive!!
