What’s coming, you ask? If you follow me on Facebook, you would know my daughter is coming for a visit, but I don’t dare call her “It.” No, I am talking about PMS week. That dreaded week when I walk around with a dark cape scowling and hissing at those around me.
Since starting bioidentical hormone therapy, I have been tracking my moods, weight, symptoms, medications, hours of sleep….heck what am I NOT tracking! I don’t think I have ever been so in-tune with my body and my symptoms. I will be honest; I have been a little weepy. Last night I was sitting on the couch with Mr. Manic – we were holding hands and watching TV. I looked at him and said “Pause the TV, honey.” I went on to say “Mr. Maniac, I love you so much. I don’t know what I would do without my BFF.” Then I cried. Then he laughed. Then I laughed. Then I cried some more. True story!
Given a choice, I would rather be weepy than hissy! It is quite inconvenient that the weepiness is not just for home enjoyment. Work weeping is especially problematic. Someone tells me a sad story and I can feel my eyes welling up. I am saying to myself “don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry!” Eh, they probably just think I am super-empathetic.
It’s been about 2 ½ weeks since I started the BHRT. I am remaining patient knowing that it could take months to see results. I hope that weepiness is all I get this month and I don’t wear my cape even one day!
