So, my doc adjusted my hormones, and I am finding that progesterone is what makes me emotional. Ugh. I do not like progesterone, but according to him, estrogen builds up the lining in the uterus and progesterone keeps the lining "in check." I have only been taking the estrogen because it is what makes me "happy," but after two months of estrogen alone, he is worried that I have too much lining build up, so he wants me to take both for two weeks, then stop everything for a week to slough off that lining (aka, have a period.) :( I have to read up on this, as my emotional state is ideal with a low dose of estrogen alone. What I also learned is that the blood test was only a "snapshot" of my hormonal level on that day, and that I am not completely post-menopausal. :O So, I have been back to crying a whole lot with all of my life issues I am dealing with, but I (logically) know that if I wasn't taking the progesterone, I would not be crying so much.
Work today, probably administrative work tonight. My daughter finds out on Friday if she was accepted into the Graphics Deisgn program. She mentioned that this is a very similar situation to when she "tried out" for cheerleading in her senior year (she also learned her fate, albeit negative, on the day before spring break.) Although I was very calm and matter of fact in trying to calm her fears of not getting in, it is SO HARD to watch your child worry! Also, did I tell you that dd's boyfriend broke off with her the day before valentine's day? She said she was actually relieved (as was I.) Apparently, he visited her "for coffee" on Saturday. She got all "dolled up" to meet him (she looked very assertive and confident), and from her accounting, I wondered if he was hoping that she would plead with him to get back together. I was so proud of her, as she was so "adult" about it and even asked him to be friends, which he still has not replied to. Oh, and dd already has another boyfriend who has apparently been "waiting in the wings." He is a really smart physics major, so we shall see what comes of this relationship. :O Oh, to be young again! DD said that he is already talking of graduate school, so he sounds intelligent and stable...although I, too, had a bf who was in the graduate physics program who turned out to be bad-bad-bad. lol. Again, "oh to be young again!" :D
It's a beautifully sunny day. Let's all make it a grand week!
