Hi i came across your post today and was feeling exactly the same. I'm 3 months post treatment and beginning to feel pretty lonely. I've struggled emotionally with it all but the longer I feel like this the less I feel I can talk about it to them. I'm trying to just tell everyone I'm fine but it's a struggle cos every so often I need to let it all out. I'm struggling with anxiety too which is quite overwhelming and I don't understand. It seems to strike when I'm not particularly thinking about what's happened to me. I didn't have chemo but I do know that it's a fact that people really struggle after. Youve been through so much that you're never going to be the same person again but unfortunately other people don't realise that. Take care of yourself 💖

I am 66 years old and have been on Anastrozole for 5 years. I was also told that I should stay on them for 10 years. A few months ago I developed pain in my right thumb and TMJ in my left jaw. My arthritis escalated after chemo. I also have neuropathy in my feet that is unbearable. The fear of cancer recurring makes the decision to get off these pills difficult. The comment about chemicals in your system causing more problems really makes sense. I sure hope I get the strength to quit these pills because I’m convinced that they are causing my health issues now. Good luck to you all that have survived breast cancer and have to live with taking AIs.
