January 4th, 2012. Some thoughts: The last few days have been sheer misery both for me AND for Tom. I didn’t know what was going on with me; I only knew that I was more irritable than ever, I didn’t want to do anything, I couldn’t sleep, everything set me off, I could cry at the drop of a hat, and I wanted to snap and swear at the world around me.
Then I had the sudden realization that I’d run out of my hormone medication and stopped taking it. I chose not to stay on it for a number of reasons, but mainly because I don’t currently have insurance, and I didn’t want to find a doc and go through all that just to get something I could probably do without. I started doing some reading, and then last evening Kathy Gay and I found a great natural food store where I got some great advice for what I should be taking to calm and alleviate these symptoms. I’m actually finally hopeful that I may turn a corner on these awful and scary feelings I have been having. Time will tell.
