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

I’m Nicer, I Think

Why do Doctors think that women suffering from menopause symptoms are candidates for cosmetic treatments? What part of my desire for my body to feel normal and react normally again screams vanity? I don’t want to cry because my waitress delivers burned toast or because a distant relative’s neighbor’s son is graduating high school. I
