After being diagnosed with Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia or ADH, I had a lumpectomy and started a 5 year regime of taking Tamoxifen once a day. One of the side effects is hot flashes despite still being in my 30’s.
At the Oncologists office last year:
Me: “Sweet! That means my period is going to stop right? Hot flashes equal no period, right?”
Oh my God so exciting! No more period!!!
Oncologist: “No, I’m sorry. You will still get your period.”
Me: “What the hell?”
Oncologist: “I know.”
I also found out Tamoxifen is an appetite suppressant so I was willing to bend a little on the period thing.
I absolutely love my doctors. Can’t say enough about them. I just happened to catch something they didn’t after a little research. Turns out the antidepressants I was taking, cancelled out the Tamoxifen. From what I’m to understand, if I don’t take Tamoxifen, you know-business as usual, my chances of breast cancer increases four-fold. In a nut shell, I pretty much need this medicine till 2020.
So, I can’t use anti-depressants. This fact completely blows so I self medicate with comedy. Much of what makes me laugh comes from You Tube. God bless You Tube. So for a night or two, I would love to share the videos that make me laugh, sometimes laughing till I cry. Right now, I need this funny shit. I have no problem watching it over and over again and I really wish there was a clean version as I would love to share it with my sons. I present to you my top favorite videos:
VIDEO 1: (give this till she is in the recording booth, your welcome)
Amy Schumer- Acting Off Camera
This video is not available in my country. WTH?!? What do you people have against Canadians … we like laughing too. I’m going to go cuddle in my igloo with my dog sled team and drink some maple syrup…take that for a natural antidepressant
No, no no! This isn’t right! You need this laughter. Crap. Let me see what I can find. You will die when you see this. Shit, Canada is closer to me then Tennessee.
Ok, try this one: http://www.cc.com/video-clips/5fym2n/inside-amy-schumer-acting-off-camera
Nope but this one does give me a message that roughly translates to “Hey you lousy Canadian, go find your own version of this video on one of your own sites but be warned it won’t be as funny as our version, because everything is better in ‘Merica” Going to see if I can find it now…stay tuned
Don’t be mad at me but I totally just laughed at your “Merica” comment bc we say it too jokingly- it’s not “merican”. Shit, my auto correct literally changed “merican” to America. Crap, this is a crisis bc I want all to enjoy. Pls google Amy Schumer-acting off camera. Do you get anything? If not, swear to God I’m sending messages to you tube and comedy central.
No more joking…seriously Canada really hates Amy Schumer. I CANNOT get this video. Every link I try says it’s not available in my country. What the heck is the video about?!? Wait don’t tell me…you might have to kill me :
It’s hilarious and I am going to figure out why you can’t get it. I don’t care if I have to go Michael Moore here, this is so stupid. This isn’t national secrets here; it’s fucking merecats and pantless characters.
You have to laugh when Amy is under the spotlight! Thanks G-uno
Yes, yes you do! 😉
