A bit of a struggle right now.
I’ve stopped all vitamin supplements, effective 2 or 3 days ago. The hot flashes continue.
I started to wonder if maybe there was something wrong with my bottle of Progest E – maybe a bad batch? I started the latest bottle a few days before the hot flashes started. To test this theory, I opened another bottle – I happened to have 2 backups in the refrigerator. That’s how I roll when I find a supplement that makes THAT MUCH of a difference for me. So I switched to this new bottle a couple days ago, and doubled my dosing to get caught up in case something was lacking with the previous bottle. Still with the hot flashes. Fewer today – only like 3 or 4 – but I would think a couple days of 40mg/day would at help more than that if a falling progesterone level was the problem.
Diet-wise I’m sort of in a free fall. Eating starches and telling myself that since my body doesn’t handle sugar then surely now it’ll handle potatoes. And that went well for the first 1.5 days. Then tonight, a wave of depression that made itself known to me as I was hollering at my child, and then 45 minutes later as I was unable to sing her a bedtime song because I was crying.
I’m sick of my body.
I’m going to come up with a plan. I’ll let you know when I have one. I may do a course of probiotics. Money is tight.
