I almost wish I'd been born a man!

carla17March 25, 2008

I had Graves disease and that was why I was hot. I had my thyroid ablated (killed), had no choice. Now I can discern that I'm having hot flashes and irritable as I can be. I am almost ready to go on synthetic hormones, dangerous as they may be. Wouldn't quality of life be better than quantity. I know that sounds harsh, I am so over this &^%%(&*(&*()(* menopause!!!

Someone else want to vent, rant, or complain, go for it.

Please consider bioidentical hormones instead of synthetic. They are sooooo much better for you. They come in creams, gels, patches and pellets. I have the pellets which are implanted every 3-4 months under the skin on my hip. They drastically changed my life for the better!
