Where did I put me?

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Help! I can't find myself. I'm not sure where I put me. I just know that the person looking back at me from the mirror is an impostor. She's on edge. She snaps. She could cry at the drop of a pin. Her smiles are not as frequent. She feels nothing is going right. Hot flashes are way too frequent. Night sweats keep her up. To be honest, she feels like she is going crazy. No joke, this is really how she feels. This person can't be me!
Today I spoke to my doctor. I asked him if weight lose has any effect on hormones.
I thought weight lose would lessen menopause symptoms. He said estrogen is stored in fat. With my weight lose, I'm also losing my estrogen. He smiled and assured me I wasn't going crazy. He probably felt sorry for me, after all my eyes were full of tears. So after being off hormones for a year, I'm starting again. I'm not crazy after all. I can't wait to feel normal again. I can't wait to find myself!!! I've missed me very much, emoticon

    You're not going crazy ... but your body is doing wierd things. Remember when we were pre-teens, crying at the drop of a hat, being snippy to friends. We were going through major hormone changes then too. We made it through that event. We will make it through this one too.
    In the meantime, keep your focus. You CAN do this!

    Wish my doctor had told me that losing weight would change those hormones. Menopause too will evenually pass.(Just not soon enough).

    Oh, Oh, Oh... See my Spark page! I too felt like I was loosing it. & when I first began Sparking and lost 20lbs right away there went my head! I thought perhaps I was getting Alzheimer's! Luckily it was the end of my work year (I work for the school district) the only time of the year when things are not soooo crazy demanding.

    Menopause is not for weenies!

    Hang in there light at the end of menopause tunnel!
