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.

I'm in my third month of BHRT I don't know if it is worth it since I gained weight and that depresses me but I am sleeing better. As far as any other improvements I don't feel any different. Libido is still an issue. I will try it for another month or so and if I don't see any significant improvements I will quit. It's not worth the money to have any negative effects like gaining weight.
