Dear Cancer....You lost! I refuse to sink!

You know Cancer...You have really been something else! We go up and down no matter if you are around anymore or not. I hate what you have left me with! You've been a bad taste in my mouth since i met you. It seems like i try to cheer everyone up when you come around. Even though i know there is nothing about you that makes anyone smile,...You drain good and bad energy...but worst of all the greedy stand by you...little do they know your lil friends insurance have just showed the greed on earth u help cause. OH I HATE U...with every tear that rolls from my eye is how much I want you FOREVER out my LIFE!

I have a question, I am a stage 3A breast cancer survivor. I googled emphysema as I was told I now have the start of it & no I was never a smoker. I was on & it says it can be a side effect from having chemo, radiation & on hormone pills. I was wonder if any of you have it, or have heard of any one having it.

Anyone else on Tamoxifen feel like it's chemo all over again?
