The American Cancer Society has a book that just recently was released, it is a collaborative effort of many survivors who all participated in a survey about the issues and concerns of survivors. Written in the words of survivors and by survivors. It is called What Helped me get through, the main author is Julie K. Silver MD, also a survivor. I participated in the sharing of my story and was delighted to receive the book upon completion, it is fantastic.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
