    Side Effects (Depression/Anxiety): I have had two chemo treatments so far. I had a panic attack during both.I had racing heart and trembling all over. They say it's from the taxol but I'm suspicious of the Benadryl.

    Procedure or Surgery (Hysterectomy): I'm 37 and going through menopause. I don't know anything about menopause. I don't have any women in my life I can talk to. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh No (Health insurance issue): I didn't have health insurance the day of my diagnosis. I had to jump right on that. Lots of phone calls. It turned out really well though thanks to Medicaid and Affordable Health Care Act. I haven't payed a dime.
