The other day I received an email from a lady who works in my building. She needed help and was frustrated that a new person on our team was not as responsive to her request as she is accustomed.
In her email she thanked me for helping her and was glad I don't think I'm 'hot stuff' like some others.
I replied to her email and said....
"The only time I'm hot stuff is when I'm having a hot flash."
Unfortunately, those unforgiving hot flashes are coming on in record numbers.
And the night sweats? Ugh!
My doctor and I discussed the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy about a month ago. I was out of estrogen, my refill privileges had expired and I wanted to know his thoughts on the continued HRT.
His opinions were in line with my feelings and I decided to suspend the therapy.
Man. It's as if the mere act of making the decision and walking out of his office flipped a switch, or amped up the frequency and intensity of the dreaded hot flashes.
I can't sleep.
I can't get comfortable.
I feel like I smell, all the time.
It's the pits, I tell you.
I'm going to go in for a second opinion.
What's your opinion?
