I've been on evorel conti HRT patches for 7 weeks now, but have had an awful day today, been very weepy and "down" all day. I thought by now that I'd be feeling a bit more like "me", but some days I seem to be worrying about anything and everything. My hot flushes disappeared within 7 - 10 days of starting patches, and most days I am OK, but why do I have these dips?. Am beginning to wonder if my HRT patches are either too strong, or not strong enough. Or, am I just depressed and would be better on antidepressants? Oh I'm so confused, upset, worried, fed up. I had knee surgery in March of this year which has taken a while to recover from, my unoperated knee is now twanging (and the thought of having surgery on this makes my stomach flip), I have fribromyalgia, I'm 56 and I've just retired from work because I just couldn't face going full time, and reduced hours was not an option open to me like and on a more upsetting note my wonderful cat was killed a month ago. I'll be so glad wen this year is over and hopefully I can start afresh in January.
Thanks for letting me rant!
