Miriam Explains How Her Mood Changed Off Hormones (VIDEO)

Rate This

Miriam describes her mood while off hormones.

When I tried to go off the hormones, I have a wonderful husband. He is the best. When I was off the hormones I thought, I have the worst husband, the worst marriage, nobody loved me. I just felt that the world was closing in on me. I felt very unhappy, very depressed, very moody, had lack of energy, could not sleep, had hot flashes. I was just really not myself. I am usually a very, very positive person, and off the hormones I was a very negative person. I was just unhappy and finding fault in everybody and everything around me. As soon as I went back on hormones, my mood swing changes. I was positive again. I had energy. I slept better. I did not have the hot flashes. I just functioned normally, which is just my normal old self, which I think is a nice, happy, generous, kind person. But when I was off the hormones, I was another person. It was not me. So I am not sure if the hormones are good for you or not. This is a debate that the doctors will have to agree on one day. But as lifestyle goes, for the last 10 years when I was on hormones, my life was wonderful. When I was off the hormones, my life was hell. So for me there is no choice. It is a lifestyle choice and it preserved my marriage. It preserved my friendships. It preserved my sanity. It preserved my energy. So for that I am very grateful.
