I had a TAH/BSO almost a yr ago. Since then I have had a lot of trouble controlling my emotions. I also recently left a really bad job after several very stressful and happy yrs. I am finding at this new job I have very little confidence and cry very easily. Example orientation being cut short due to low census. I got nervrous as heck and actually cried about it. I tried very hard not to cry at work but it seemed the harder I try not to cry or appear nervous or upset the worse it gets. This upsets me a great deal as I do not want to annoy coworkers or appear unprofessional or incompetant. I had a recent check of hormones which showed very little so my hrt was doubled. I have no idea what it is now but judging by my easy crying jags I fear not much better. Any suggestions or opinions? OH yea I am under 40.
I had a total hyst several years ago and tried 2 times to get off the estrogen. I am trying again now. NOthing helps that nervousness, irritability, tearfullness that i have tried other than the estrogen. I have try all kinds of soy supplements, herbal remedies to no avail. I understand what your feeling. It is very overwhelming. I don't like it at all.
I found a combination of estrogen and testosterone made a world of difference. Made a dent in my loss of libido/small but I think that is due to kids moving back in here and being back up to 4 older children at home and the stress of work, life.
Do you have any kind of creative expression in your life?
