It’s coming…

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!

    Oh how I pray this all works out for you! I have seen you during ( the month) and you were so bad I thought maybe taking you to the hospital would be my only option. Fight the fight as I know you will and KNOW that I’m cheering you on! 🙂

    Now that you bring it up I realized that I too am more weepy since beginning BHRT…interesting…didn’t think that would be a side affect, but you’re right…better to be weepy than cranky 🙂

    Thanks for the advice… I had my appointment today to go over my test results and was happy to hear like all of the women on the blog, that I am hormonally imbalanced and suffer from adrenal fatigue. I couldn’t wait to get the the pharmacy to get all of my goodies. Wish it were a quicker fix. Reading your response about taking care of me starts NOW! Thanks again..
