Ok, confession time: I'm a tad afraid that my hormones are making me feel a little roid ragey. I'm not used to taking birth control pills (BCP) and I'm certainly not used to taking DHEA, both of which contain hormones. This morning I feel unusually weepy, and often I feel unusually RAWR!!!! Add that I am probably PMSing and it's a mighty good thing that hubby is at the office today.
I'm hoping it will level off soon; the bad parts, not the good parts. On the good side I think I am getting darn good sleep at night (not normal for me) and I don't feel exhausted during the day like I normally do. DHEA is supposed to help people with chronic fatigue syndrome and I am wondering if the deeper sleep at night is why. How long has this been a problem for me? My mom still tells stories how she worried I would be kicked out of kindergarten because of my requirement for 2+ hour naps.
If the Fedex man likes me today, then I should receive my Melatonin. Hopefully that won't throw me back to wanting to sleep all the time. Sigh. I wonder if I should go back to acupuncture. It didn't seem to help one bit and I wonder if the occasional massage wouldn't be just as effective (and appreciated more.) Then again, the acupuncturist also could help me wade through the RAWR.
If someone had told me a year ago that I would be taking all kinds of weird supplements and dropping $100 a pop to the local acupuncturist, I would have told them they were off their rocker. Next thing you know I'll be traveling to a rural town, in a foreign country, without my husband, navigating the intricacies of basic every day things, for the privileged of shots in my belly. Oh wait...
