This forum is such a lifesaver and such a wonderful place to go for advice and support. I know I have found so much support and peace of mind when reading others have my same issues and have truly made it through some rough patches because of the info on this board. I have also loved finding the posts where women share a positive story and experience. Today, I have one to share!
Last August, me and my family were set to go to Hawaii for a family vacation. Long story short... we had to cancel it because of my severe and debilitating peri symptoms. I was very deep in the weeds last July/August/September. Literally bedbound and the housebound during those months and only left my house to go to the Dr.'s to try and figure out what the hell was wrong with me! It's been 13 months of peri for me. I am now 11 months without a period and am feeling better. Well enough to go on the family vacation we missed because peri had eaten me alive last summer! I know we are all different and have a different hormonal journey, but I hope this post gives some hope that this phase of our lives is not permanent and we will all get better. Last summer I was so lost and sick and terrified I would never feel good or be myself again! I am not 100% myself yet, but I am getting there and so grateful we get to go on this vacation and create some family memories. I truly didn't know if I would ever feel good enough for me to be able to enjoy things again. Hang in there and know this crappy phase will end and we will all be able to enjoy life once more. Hugs to you all!
