It’s been a while…
It’s been a few months since I’ve blogged. I’ve been really busy with work and the kids, but I thought I’d drop in and say hi. Last time I blogged was back in April, when I was still in the early stages of treatment. I was getting nervous that the bioidenticals weren’t working because I wasn’t feeling much better than before starting BHRT. After a few weeks, things started change – in a good way. I don’t know how to explain it other than I just felt like my life was more managable. Nothing in my life changed much – still had the same responsibilities, I just was able to tackle it all easier than years prior.
Even my husband noticed the change in me. He says that I’m not as “crazy” as I used to be. I have to admit, I was like a walking volcano, ready to erupt at any moment. Unfortunately, he would bear the brunt of my rage. But things are different now. It’s amazing how something as a simple as balancing your hormones can make such a dramatic difference in your life. I was definitely skeptical at first. I didn’t want to buy into the hype. Also, I heard a lot of negative things on the internet about how bioidentical hormones can cause breast cancer and whatnot. The decision wasn’t easy, but I’m glad I tried it.
I still have my “off” days, but nothing out of the ordinary. I can honestly say that treatment REALLY DOES work. You just have to be patient. And it’s more than just hormones – it’s about your lifestyle too. Diet, exercise and stress reduction are also a big part of the new me.
