I'm HOT!....NO Really...I am...SIZZILIN'

I can sum it all up in one word...MENOPAUSE !!!

Yeah, it is supposed to happen much later in life but don't let anyone tell ya it's not HARD CORE. The type of cancer HAD was estrogen receptor positive so my treatment has been Lupron shots for 3 years and tamoxifen. The Lupron is a form of Chemo but basically those shots and the daily tamoxifen pill is supposed to shut my ovaries down completely OUCH!

...So for the past few years I have been soaking my sheets nightly and feeling oh so attractive with my hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido and THAT'S bad because this girl LOVES sleep! I would have added hair loss and dry skin but that was back in the day(2 years ago) before No More Scary Hairy and Brallywood Butta which has saved me and my vanity(sorry for those of you that think I'm being petty and think I should be thankful just to be alive...hey...I am...but can't a girl look good while she's livin'?).

I am thankfully now off the Lupron and I will be off Tamoxifen next year!!!YIPPY!

Girls please be reassured that I know how lucky I am because I have mentioned it before so with that said... I have embraced feeling like a drowned rat at 2am while my hands and feet feel like they're on fire, walking around like a zombie on occasion due to the lack of zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's and...oh! Trouble hookin' up with the hubby was....only temporary! Now that's AMORE...
All these little hiccups are a small price to pay if your goal is...Stayin' Alive aye aye aye ....Stayin' Alive...ahhhh....I miss the Bee Gees!
