Step a little closer, pretty please, so I can rip your face off!

Well. As my previous post and comments have suggested, my high prolactin has affected me in that I have not had periods in almost 5 years. So, it's good news that there isn't a tumor. Very good news. The doctor has put me on a medication called Dostinex.

I do believe it is hormone related. It may be more dopamine related but I'm not sure. My understanding is that this drug has a couple of uses but in my case, it is being used to bring down the prolactin in my body so that my body can begin to act like a woman's body once again.

Well, I think it's working because I seem to be experiencing what I remember to be PMS. I am experiencing some crazy mood swings today but most notably is that I really want to punch someone's lights out. It's been so long ago, I'm not sure I remember what PMS is like.

Maybe it's the moon! It's a full moon today but normally I'm so affected by the moon. And really, I'm calm for the most part.

Isn't this what you wanted? To be back to "normal?" That old saying, "be careful what you ask for" comes to mind. LOL!! Don't mean to poke fun but hormone fluctuation can be a bitch can't it? If you don't laugh through it you might really end up ripping a few faces off.

I'm here to vouch for the whole ripping off of faces deal. Yeah, it's PMS alright.

It's wierd. But, I know that my bones are getting the stuff they need. That has been my greatest concern. I would never ever have allowed myself to go without periods had I known what this was doing to my body.

So, I've been trying to eat as much good stuff as I can for my bones. :)

I'll help you beat up whoever you want to tear up!! LOL! I could release some pent up anger...(it's not hormones, in my case).
