    How do others deal with the depression concerning one's gross appearance when naked? Also, the depression caused by getting off estrogen/progesterone? I finally had to get back on the hormones, even though I have estrogen receptive and progesterone receptive cancer. I got back on a much smaller dose than before the diagnosis. Still, taking hormones is crazy, but being without them was making life not worth living. How do others deal with this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      HI Buster and welcome to the site! That is a common problem for a lot of us, having to deal with changing body images. There are a lot of great people here that can help with that.

      I noticed you posted this as an update, if you will post this as a question in the "questions" tab at the top of any page, more people will see it, and it also gets sent to all the people who have a like diagnoses as you.

      Give it a try, repost it and let the great people on WhatNext give you some feedback.

      thanks for being here, let me know if I can help with anything on the site.
