One word...Hormones!! Need I say more? well probably not but I am going to... I hate them!! For the past year I have been getting pms and each month it is getting worse and worse.....I never really had any pms symptoms my whole it is really bothering me. I feel very stressed out, very anxious and feel as if I could either scream or cry. I am also breaking out like a teenager in puberty...UCK!! I went to the doctor this past week as I found a lump in one of my breasts....have a big family history risk so I went right away to have it checked out. Had a baseline mammogram in 2004 so at least I have that to go against. I had another mammogram and an ultrasound yesterday, and will see a surgeon on Monday morning. Not sure what the findings were on the mam and just have to wait and see what the surgeon says....hoping it is just hormonal and not the big C. But it has been an eye opening lightbulb sort of moment for me. I have to get in better health and shape.....I have read tons of articles, stories and testimonials of people who have had cancer and they truly believe the only way they got through it and healed was cause of early detection, and they led healthy lifestyles and were more fit and could heal better. Who knows if this is really true, but what can it hurt right? I am also kicking my hubbys butt into action too as he is so terribly overweight and out of shape, just walking 15 minutes to and from our kids school was alot for him to do. I don't want him to drop over with a heart attack or end up with diabetes or heart disease. We should be enjoying life more than we do...getting out and doing that is my get us moving more and get us healthier and avoid some nasty health issues and lower our risk of dying young.

    I have had alot of problems with pms and read that around that time to avoid animal fats and drink soy products to raise your progesterone levels and lower you estrogen levels and that should help with mood swings. So far so good. I've been doing it for a month. Also eating green leafy vegetables for cramps. Hope this helps. Also best of luck with the surgeon. Hope everything works out for you! emoticon
