Seriously, what are us forty-somethings doing about hormones run amok? Is it just me? I’m a leaky little boat bucked about on the hormone tide and I have had quite enough.
The latest is:
Continual night sweats
Boobs that hurt
Joints that hurt
Head that hurts
Uterus that hurts
Heat waves of hotness
Intense irritability of epicness
General feelings of suck
I’ve been to so many doctor appointments and had so many tests and I have no idea what to do next. I suppose I haven’t found the right doctor (WHERE ARE THEY??? The ones that know of the hormones and the havoc they wreak?) or eaten the right supplement (HOW MANY MORE AM I SUPPOSED TO TAKE?) or done the right yoga pose (COULD YOGA LESSONS BE ANY MORE EXPENSIVE???).
Honestly? I’m beside myself. I’ve never been more challenged by a condition in my entire life. There is no road map. I would like a road map, please.
*Mixed metaphors…another little-known symptom of hormonal imbalance.
UPDATED: I found a doctor. She’s going to work with me. She even used a water metaphor (my favorite) to describe what I’m going through…maybe I won’t be a leaky little boat anymore! I’ll tell you all about my journey as it happens…
