I love progesterone.

Do you realize people, that I haven’t had a full nights sleep since Kinley was a baby?  That is a long time to be sleep deprived.  Partly because I had 5 babies in a row, and then adopted Jordan.  Jordan took a full year of special treatment, just to get him to sleep through the night without feeling scared.  The other reason I don’t sleep through the night is because that I am used to it, or now I know that my progesterone was low. 

I just got the rest of my hormones in the mail, and I am starting to feel like a new woman.  I have had two full nights sleep, and that is huge for me.  Also, after only a week of treatment by Dr. Jones, I have finally after a year, stopped my period.  Can you believe it?  I can’t.  I used my testosterone creme, vitamin D drops, progesterone…and whole lot of other things I am low in for one week and I am seeing changes start to happen already. 

I wish every woman that has experienced symptoms of hormonal imbalance could get tested.  Most don’t even realize they have them!  It is not cheap, because insurance doesn’t help pay for it.  It seriously makes me want to find a way to make it available to everyone (men included).  Is there such thing as a non profit for hormone therapy?  I doubt it.  Funny thing is, most women run to Prozac to feel better.  All Prozac is doing is putting a band aid on the real problem, and numbing out every emotion in life.  I don’t want to be numb, I just want to be equipped to deal with life, and this means a healthy body, mind, and spirit. 

I believe that pregnancy and stress are the culprits that knocked me off track.  Two things that all mother’s deal with!  Anyway, enough of that..but I thought I owed you an update.  I have put myself basically on bed rest for that past week, during the transition of removing Mirena and starting everything else.  I believe it made a huge difference.  I was the most sad/ornery/mad for the first three days.  Then I felt just really depleted and tired.  Now, today anyway, I feel like I could conquer the world!  Hopefully this will last as I keep taking steps to being healthier.  I will start back exercising next week, and focus on watching what I eat closer again.  I went into survival mode during the transition, but now I feel strong enough to get back going. 

On a totally different subject, thank goodness because I am getting sick of talking about myself, I saw this yesterday and loved it!

It reminds me of all the times I have been at the grocery store.  I don’t believe in yelling at my kids, I never have.  But, believe me…I have the scary whisper down to a science!
