I finally accepted my docs advise and I am on Lexapro *antidepressant* - the world seems brighter, but now I don't seem to care if the cancer comes back or not, I feel chemically altered, but I don' t care. Is this normal? radiation girl :)

    We have to think about the cancer but you can't let it consume you. It is ok to take help because breast cancer is a life altering event. We have to live through it to get to our best selves.

    I am on Effexor and feel the same way. It's better than crying all the time. Prayers to you.

    It can take up to 6 weeks to build up in your system. It is normal how you're feeling right now. You will start to feel better after a while.

    Lexapro did not work for 6 weeks for me. It has definitely helped me cope.
