the ultimate irony

One year ago today (exactly) I had chemo #3. I also had my last period before chemopause kicked in.

So, remember what I said about wanting “normal”? I take it back. I take it ALL back. I want routine, not normal.


Too late.

Today I started my period again. It’s as bad as being a teenager – cramps, bloating, general discomfort and oh yes, a lovely mood.

I’m just ticked. I was hoping I would never have it again. And what’s worse is that the tamoxifen that I’m on? The side effects are menopausal (hot flashes, itchy skin, sleeplessness).

Talk about irony.
