Posted , 8 users are following.

Omg ..... I’m on the estrogen patch and got my time of the month today . I feel soooooo normal paid bills folded laundry done a facial like the old me boy do I miss her ! If I could feel like this everyday 😩 

The rest of the time I’m just lying on the bed all day depressed .

      Ah thx Katie. I know it’s just because my period came but even a glimpse of my old self ... even if it’s just for a day or two ... I’m grateful 🙏🏻 

      Being this way for so long I forgot what normal feels like ... it’s a crying shame 😩

    Fabulous Lori!!! Hopefully you will stay that way, that would be great... And if symptoms do return, maybe they will just cycle themselves monthly instead of them staying with you 24/7 at least if you journal daily then you'll know when to expect them to come and then go.. But fingers and toes both crossed you stay feeling fabulous !!!!😄

      Lori - I am SO happy for you! I think what Gypsy shared about the journaling is a great idea. I am realizing that even though I may only have 1 or 2 good days - I cling to them!

      Maybe we will eventually see that those 1 or 2 days become 3 and 4 etc. It's so hard to take the time to write it down each day - today I am also having a better day! So thankful to read your post!

      I’ve definitely made a mental note as the 2 days before it started we’re AWFUL ! Felt ill

      Dizzy and so so tired . I didn’t get pms so bad before the patch .... if it ends up giving me mostly good days I’ll take a few awful days and be prepared for it !

    Wow, just like that?? I’m in perimenopause now but 3 days late for my monthly and I feel absolutely wretched physically and emotionally..this may be something for me to look into, the estrogen patch..I started these symptoms about a year ago, I’m 47...just seeing how long this may last is depressing but if there is something that helps I’m all for it! Glad you’re doing so great, that’s really amazing!🙂

    Hi Lori,

    Glad to hear that you are having such success with the patch. How did they come to find out that you needed the patch? Had you stopped seeing your period already? I'm asking because I didn't think they gave HRT unless you were already in menopause.
