I had a great week as far as diet and exercise last week. This week is a whole other story. I have no energy. None. I am always tired. Even if it is my day off, I am ready for bed by around 6 pm...if not sooner. I haven't walked the past few days, as I have no energy to do so. Weigh-in day is tomorrow. I don't know what the scales will say. Hopefully today's liquid only diet will have helped. I had some dental work done this morning and cannot chew anything...let alone open my mouth far enough to put any food into it, lol. I am also extremely irritable. I love my kids with all my heart....but with always feeling tired...Gage's whining and shouting are really pushing me over the edge. I can't take it. It annoys me to no ends! I went to the doctor last week, as I had been having my monthly cycle for 26 days at that point. I explained I have all the symptoms of perimenapause....but because I am only 36 the doctor told me I am too young. Case closed. She wouldn't even do bloodwork to check my hormone levels. She checked my hemoglobin levels...which are she wont do anything. She said to basically deal with all the symptoms and the bleeding for a month. Apparently this is all normal things to her. I will try to start walking again later this week. Maybe it will make me feel better. It is certainly worth a shot because nothing else is working right now.

    I'm with Cyclegirl. Absolutely seek another opinion. I had similar problems at age 40, and the doctor offered me several options.

    ((hugs)) I know it's no fun. :(

    I'm sorry that you're having such a rough time. Hang in there!

    Maybe you should seek a second opinion?

    Take care of yourself!

    I think you need to find a new Dr.Anyone that dismisses your problems and treats you like you are an idiot should not have the name Dr. There treatments for your bleeding.I was about your age when I found out that I had a thyroid problem. A blood test would show that. It could show low iron and many other things.
    can you tell that I had a Dr that dismissed me? I was lucky to find another Dr, that really cares.
