Hi, I'm 37 years old and two years ago I had to have a hysterectomy. I thought I was fine I did have some issues with hot flashes and moods, but that did seem to get better after getting my meds right. The past 7 months have really been dificult for me. I know find myself unemployed, a wife of a deployed soldier and an 18 year old step daughter whom I raised that hates me. I find it hard to get out of bed. I cry all the time. Have I jus reached the end of my rope, or maybe a change of hormone meds is needed? How will I know. I feel like I'm loosing my mind!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for you question. Sorry to hear how you feel. I can imagine how hard it must be. But a Hysterectomy does bring alot of changes to a woman's life especially hormonal and the changes your body has gone through can also affect your life. It is important to see your doctor soon and explain your symptoms. He can suggest the right treatment for you with HRT or even natural remedies. Even seeing a Therapist might be a good idea to talk about your problems with your step daughter.

Here are some links that can help.
