Hello fellow sufferers!
Hello! My name is Nancy (Nan) and I am a 38 year-old momma of a pretty amazing four year old and wife to another pretty amazing 44 year old :-)
I had to have a complete hysterectomy about a year-and-a-half ago because of severe endometriosis. I was in so much pain that it made it hard to walk and literally never went away. So when I visited my doctor he told me that a complete hysterectomy would probably be my best course of action. But I have to say that was not an easy decision for my husband and I. We tried for 12 years and finally had our son but then not long after I had to have a surgery that would make it impossible to naturally have any more children.
After the surgery I felt 100% better but now after discontinuing my HRT for roughly two and a half months now I am definitely feeling menopause in all it's wonderfulness. I don't really have a big problem with hot flashes but am having a little bit of an issue with perpetual warmness. Mood swings are a killer! I've already had anxiety for years and am on medication for it so that is actually not as bad as I've experienced in just regular life. Definitely experiencing a lot of "space cadet syndrome" as I like to call it. Half the time I feel like my head is in outer space LOL Definitely making my full-time job as well as my full-time job as a mom a lot more interesting!
I'm very excited to be joining a group where I can get some tips as well as have friends that know what I'm talking about! So hello fellow sisters!
