So you may have read about my Gluten Free issues but that is only a piece of my large iceberg of issues.
Last year my naturopath Chiropractor sent me to a wonderful Female M.D. specialist because of my hormone issues and thyroid issues.
By then I was 38, working a solid 50 hours or more a week but that is normal for me and usually tolerated it well. Also my job is really very stressful, but I had tolerated well. But a year before that things started piling on my back. I could not let anything slide off of me. I picked up every bodies bad attitudes and took them on as my own. I cried all the time, if I wasn't mad as hell. Very long story short, I was progesterone deficient. So I started a prescription progesterone therapy and did great for a while, until they took me off of it cold turkey because they said I was receiving WAY TOO Much progesterone.
I literally crashed into a Brick Wall. I drove to my Chiropractors office because after being off of the Progesterone for 2 weeks I was ready to end my life. I simply couldn't take it anymore. I knew that I had to get help and I knew she would tell me what to do. I walked in without an appointment and begged to just speak to her, which they let me do. As soon as she got in the room I told her I was worried that I was going crazy, I was so depressed I couldn't think straight. I'd been reading scripture with no help. I'd been singing my favorite spiritual songs with no help. My mind was taking over. Thank God for her. First she hugged me and let me cry. Then she started working on me. She gave me some Progesterone Cream to use because I obviously still needed it. She got me some blood tests and got me an appointment with this other amazing Dr. (Oh, by the way, I did call the prescribing Dr. and begged to speak to him which I was not allowed to do. I called back and told the nurse that I was worried I was going to hurt myself, she told me to call my family Dr. and get my anti depressants checked. - I had already called my family Dr. and they wanted me to talk to the OB/GYN and get more progesterone.)
