Saw My Doctor

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Well I saw the doctor today. He wasn't thrilled with my blood pressure still not being managed but he was very hopeful with the progress I am making on diet and exercise. He wants me to stick with my vegan eating plan and using the FitBit to monitor my activity and we will see if more progress is made in the next 4-6 weeks. IT was felt this was a better course of action than to start playing around with different meds when I am so drug sensitive as it is that it could just start me down a bad road. He does feel that part of the problem I am dealing with is my menopause. And I am not a candidate for HRT because with my family history it could end up causing bigger problems than helping. So he also encouraged me to try an herbal for easing of the menopausal symptoms. I am not used to a doctor so willing to try something more holistic. What a breath of fresh air.

My mood has been awful the last two days. Suffice it to say...I miss my estrogen. How do men deal with all this aggressive hormonal tendencies? LOL
