For one thing, perimenopause is contributing to my depressed feelings. I am having nights sweats and then I get cold from sweating. I wake up cold and sweating. My hair is soaked....eeewwww. I am on birthcontrol pills to help with the hormone replacement, but when I have to take my break for those 7 days to get my monthly friend, my hormones go crazy and the night sweats are bad. I am just finishing my period this month and I am hoping now that I am back on my next pack of pills the night sweats will ease up, at least until I have to take the 7 day break again. I wish I could take the pills that are continous, but they are not strong enough.
I have even been still fighting a bug I have had for a month. I will think I am getting better, then I will start to run a low grade temp again....gesh. I just want to feel healthy for goodness sake. My sleep has been all disturbed. I am up all night and sleep til 1-2 in the afternoon. Then I am tired by 6pm, but cannot go to sleep. Then by 10pm I am bugged eyed....tired but too wired up to sleep. I am trying to make myself get up early even if I do not sleep the night before, but that has been hard.
I did have a good thing happen the other day. My cousin called me and offered to buy us some food. She took me to the store and bought us some good stuff. I am so very appreciative and grateful for her generousity. It also made me feel good that someone in my extended family cared about the hard times we have been going through.
