Hello Mirene, I am sorry you are struggling emotionally. Having BC is life changing. No matter your circumstances. I too felt guilt for getting angry and sad as I was very lucky and only had one mast. No chemo or rads. I felt terrible through out the recon. Sick and frustrated. I had mild depression prior to the BC and the meds took a toll on me. I saw a therapist and upped my anti depressant. it took time but it helped greatly. BC took something from you that you cherished as did you your husband. You have every right to be angry but you know your husband does not deserve the brunt of it. Get some help...Please talk to your PCP about how you feel. There are very mild anti depression meds that you can take for a short time that kind of help you get out of a funk. You may just need something like that. I have yet to have sex with out a cammi on so I understand the issues there...ugh do I!! Good luck and continue to post...the women on here are great. HUGS..
