More of the same

Well, I slept better last night. I've been anxious all day, though. It's the pits. I sat in my office trying not to cry. I really wish my husband wasn't out of town.

I found out my hormone levels for the month today. My progesterone was above 20, so that's much better than 7 last month, but my estradiol dropped to 9.9. The doctor wants me to come in, so I've got an appointment for Friday. I told the doctor's assistant about my anxiety and my idea that it's related to my hormones. She immediately mentioned the connection between progesterone and post-partum depression and said I should talk to the doctor about it. I'm just so grateful to have medical people to work with who don't dismiss my ideas or questions. I called in to PPVI today because my period started, so I should get to talk to a nurse tomorrow, too.

Well, that's about all I've got in me today. I'm really tired and I'm hungry, but too nervous to eat! Two people have asked me if I've lost weight. I only lose weight when I'm anxious, because I have trouble eating. I finally called two friends who I thought would sympathize, but I didn't get through to either one. I hate this feeling!

It sounds like your doctor is very responsive, is tracking your hormone levels not just one month but this month, too, so he/she is taking your concerns seriously. This is something to be thankful for!

I found you through Lost and Found.

I hope that you feel better soon, and I am glad to read that you have doctors who really listen to you and take you seriously!
