Perimenopause sucks mouldy rocks.

Here I am, with a fantastic life - really. Signore is awesome and sweet and incredible and everything. School is really kewl and I'm learning *so* much. My kids are great kids. In short, my life rocks.

So wtf ?

I'm on meds because my f*ing hormones won't let me think straight, and I'm having trouble with concentration, focus, attention, short-term memory, and even bouts of depression. NO FAIR! And on top of it all, I have no libido. Zilch. Nada. Like, "sex drive? What's that?" ME! Ms "the sun rose in the east therefore I'm " Horny. ARGH! This is completely and totally unacceptable.

I'm still, barely, managing to get things done, but if it weren't for flylady, seriously, I would be totally lost. My doc is trying a different medication dosage/delivery for me, so hopefully, that'll help. In the meantime, I'm just pissed about this whole situation. I can't wait for this perimenopause crap to be over so I can get *me* back.

Oh, I know. I do know. I've been going through it for a year. They put me on meds and I had Aunt Flo for 64 days straight. At that point I said to hell with it and stopped. NOTHING was worth 64 days straight of that. Gawd. Now I'm in full menopause tho... at 37, even. Very different. My monthly isn't as bad and it keeps getting farther and farther apart, but my cramps hurt as much as ever. And I have my "PMS" at the time i "should have" had my flow. Wierdness. :)

I never did get "me" back; I had to readjust my self-definition. I thought the worst thing would be to get used to thinking being like slogging through mud--I was right. I had to get used to it, and it sucks. Of course, I didn't do the HRT, so if you are that might make a difference. I hope so.
