My new friend, Tami.

I have just received my mail ordered medication, Tamoxifen.  I will condition myself to take a tiny pill daily for the next 5 years.  She and I will have to conform to one another.  She will actually be instrumental in prolonging a healthy life if I take her with a full glass of water with or without food. 

We gazed upon one another and I could hear her say; “Don’t miss a dose”  “Tell your doc if you experience any side effects such as numbness, weakness, headaches, and any other lumps or bruises associated with your diagnosis…”  I nod in agreement. 

My initial reaction to Tami brought on a wave of sadness.  But on second thought, she will be my “female hero”, my “warrior princess” to treat my ailment because after all, I am a survivor!
