Truly .... didn't sleep at all last night. Tossed and turned felt like crap and woke up to a fever of 101.1 -- that hasn't happened since I was pregnant with Max. I hate being sick. Called off work even tho I work from home so at least they know I am really sick. First time I have been out of bed all day. Felt the need to blog.....crazy right?
Went to my medical Dr. last Friday. Yearly physical. Took blood and a few other samples. (yuck) and he called and said everything was below normal. SHOCK! My blood pressure, cholestorel, etc. I was pleased. He was very happy with my weight loss of 30 lbs since I was there last year.
Monday I went to my OBGYN for my yearly. Trust me, I know how to party. She was just as pleased with the weight loss and asked if I was having any issues. Told her I was just getting over a sinus infection but was having problems sleeping. Asked me a few other questions and said there was a test they could run to see if I was in perimenopause. Huh? Me? She took blood samples said she would call me with results.
I AM IN PERIMENOPAUSE! WTH.....I am 42. How can this be happening?? She put me on some meds to regulate my period, told me to call if I was experiencing any problems. Heavy periods, no periods, stressed out, anxious, etc. I am not really stressing about it, but really at 42?
Any thoughts, advice would be appreciated!
