    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Hormone therapy): I was forced to take Arimidex when I restarted testosterone hormone therapy as an FTM.

    Other Care (Psychosocial): Two weeks after my mastectomy, my morbid depression returned in full force. I suppose that just a moderate amount of the depression was actually related to the BC, as I was horribly depressed before diagnosis.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): I was glad to have my breast removed and have pecs formed as I am an FTM transgender man.

    Celebration (mastectomy and male chest reconstruction): This was the silver lining of my BC diagnosis. I am an FTM transman, so having my breasts surgically removed and having pecs formed was actually a plus for me.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Diagnosis. I was already suffering from an extreme, morbid depression.
