I have decided that MP is my biggest problem. LOL! I go several months thinking it's finally all over, then I lose all energy and feel horrible with stomach aches for a week or so and look old and am cranky and then here it comes just like I'm still 30 yo- but it might last 3 days or 10 days, then I go thru a second puberty or something, then I start all over this stupid cycle again. I can't take hormones- at least I won't because I smoke and I knew a lady who got cancer a couple of years after taking that risk and a few years later she died. So I guess I'm stuck with it but I'm tired of this- it has been on like this for over a year. And that's not counting the other several years of hot flashes, disrupted sleep, etc. It is really hard to believe that this is normal.
