Re: I feel good!!

George asks ...

"Does anyone else think that all this hormone manipulation we've gone through plays havoc with our emotions?"


I took my last Lupron injection at the beginning of December and I can tell the difference already. The hot flashes are about gone and my spouse tells me that my "moods" are much better now.

Couple that with having just completed five weeks of radiation two weeks ago, I feel much better about all this stuff.

Now, if I could just delete four simple words from my vocabulary (frequency/urgency/pain/burning) life would be fantastic. Maybe in time.

Congratulations Terry ... good stuff to hear and I'm not too full of glee to realize that the "PSA anxiety" will be my constant companion for the rest of my life.

But right now my glass is half full, not half empty.

Re: I feel good!!

Was going to call you to hear the results. Your good news saved me a Skype. Hang in there


Re: I feel good!!

Thank you all, my friends.

Food for thought in those replies. I must admit, I guess I even feel a little better for actually coming out and admitting the depression.

I could best describe my feelings as being a "crisis of confidence" and I am longing now to get that confidence back into my life.

The doc did give me the higher dose SSRIs so I should see a big difference in a few weeks.

In the meantime I'm doing my best to kick my own ass on a daily basis.

Good luck and warrmest wishes to you all,
