Being off the synthetic testosterone, my skin is now somewhat back to normal. The oily thick feeling is gone and my adema is minor. Prior to any HRT, I was exhausted and run down. I felt like jumping off a cliff as it would be easier than waking up on various days. My energy level is now consistent and I feel 'normal'. I have been able to make it through days without naps! imagine that no naps required unless I would like one! With this being said, my mood has improved and my ability to relax and sit still while not being exhausted is overwhelming.

Foggy



I have a slight cold that is tickling my throat, this was pre meds and now it seems to want more of me. My meds actually suppressed this feeling for at least 2 days. I am tired and a bit foggy but truly believe it's from this cold that I'm determined to come down with. My BHRT creams are getting easier to figure out as to where and how to apply. I called my compounding pharmacist in Arlington and gave them an update as well... as their compounding has increased my health and well being. (They deserve a pat on the back too!). My mood is really good and I caught myself smiling 3-4 times since yesterday...being hypo those of you who have it should know what it feels like to not smile often. My hunger has increased, my dry mouth is still consistent, and I'm sleeping much better/ heavier! I can only assume my metabolism is increasing to the balance of my Hormones-resulting in a better nights sleep and more need for nutrition. (?) So I'm drinking more and eating healthy to curb my snacki' habits to prevent negative weight gain...as for the sleeping I need a louder clock! lol. Another good day.
My transiton form synthetics to BHRT seems uninterrupted thus far.

Today is day 2 of my BHRT. My energy level has been optimal compared to the past. I have remained alert and less foggy throughout. I'm hopeful.
