Hormones suck...

Oh yes, to all women I am stating the obvious and every single woman knows exactly what a woman is referring to and can totally relate. Well, men can't. They say they do, but nope. I have two types of hormones:
  1. I am going to cry and cry for no reason
  2. I am totally on edge and anything you say might set me off
In both instances, it is horrible for people around me and I gladly own this 100%. The problem is the getting mad shit that can occur (and usually does) by the man.

As a lovely side effect of the surgery, although I was lucky to get to keep my ovaries, they have to switch blood supplies. During this time, some people (SOME people) get the joy of experiencing some menopausal symptoms. Guess what? I am SOME people!!!! I had a hot flash and said - I hope I don't have any more of these, which I haven't, but my hormones are OUTTA WHACK big time. Both 1 & 2 as described. UGH!

I have not been working out because I am still sidelined because of the surgery. I have been eating a lot better than I had been though and am hoping that I will end up maintaining as a minimum.

Yup...sounds like hormonal fluctuations. Try soy and black cohash and for the night sweats and hot flashes wicking pajamas work well.

Oh boy...I can relate to your hormone problems. Try and hang in there and know that you are not alone. I have heard about the black cohash for the hot flashes too. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
