Our Little House Of Horrors

So my doc altered my bio identical hormone compound last week, and like I said in my previous post, I’m nicer. I think.

But I’m not out of the woods yet. My body is still acclimating to the estrogen. And the side effects of estrogen are rough, especially when you go from pretty much zero estrogen, to a normal level overnight. I know I waited too long; I went too many weeks with zeroed out estrogen levels, and now my estrogen receptors are revolting; complete with cannons and rocket launchers and I’m miserable; but nicer. Really.

And logically I know the estrogen side effects will subside; I know the bladder cramps will fade away; I know that I’ve probably got the flu, and not hormone related morning sickness, because I found a note taped to my seventeen year old son’s door this morning that read: don’t wake me up, I puked my guts out last night.

But I went online anyway, and I played internet doctor. And now I firmly believe I am near death; my bladder is going to fall out of my vagina at any minute, and I definitely have permanent morning sickness, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Hmmm. Maybe my son’s guts really did come out of his mouth last night. I should Google that too…
