I’m a terrible blogger lately, I know.
I can’t figure out if I’m going to renew the URL come summer or not. I like having a place to express my thoughts about health, but after five years of it, I felt that it was getting to be too repetitive. A break was very necessary, and I’m glad that I took one, even though I’ve probably alienated a few readers in the process.
I’ve been thinking of attempting to compile the best posts into an ebook – I’d prefer an actual printed book, but an ebook seems like a less lofty goal right now. That maybe what this all turns into, who knows right?
As I sit here typing this, I’m being assaulted by mega endometriosis pain. I see the endocrinologist on Monday to decide what my other options are, as this hormonal treatment, while seriously effective while I’m on it, really is not working in the off periods. I’m not even sure if there is a solution that is going to work for me. It worries me, as the only two options I know of are Lupron and/or a hysterectomy (in terms of hormone stability, not so much endometriosis), and both of these options are just FULL of nasty side effects.
I’m not looking forward to any of it, that is for sure, but my pain, anxiety, acne, mood swings, hot flashes, and lactation problems are all back in full force.
Have any of you gone down the road of hormone replacements? Do you have any advice?
