My last Hormone, or why I don’t want to go Bald. 


Doctors. One says yes to Hormone replacement. The other says no.

The No doctor says to me:  “do you shave your feet?”

Me:  ” I rarely have to shave my legs.  Why?”

No Doc:  “when was the last time you shaved your legs?”

Me:  “4 or 5 days?”

No Doc takes my arm:  “you don’t have hair on your arms either.  Your eyebrows are thin, and your hairline is receding.  No more hormones.”

Me:  “I’ve always been smooth, Doctor.”

No Doc:  “That’s why you are going in for an Ultrasound on your thyroid, and I’m getting 8 vials of blood.”

Me:  ” if I grow a mustache because of this, you are in trouble!”

I guess I’d rather be Cranky, Weepy, and Bitchy than Bald.

    • I’m 10 days into my hormone withdrawal. And I am a weepy mess. The good news is the ultrasound of my thyroid was clear. I go back to see the NO-Doc the first of March for evaluation, and to tweak the thyroid medication.
      I’m serious about that mustache, if I start growing weird hair, He is in trouble.

  1. Wendy, I’m so sorry for your raging emotions. Not fun at all. I’m not on hormones but I do have some serious issues with anxiety and moodiness. Ugh. Sooooo, I can truly empathize. You know, when I was pregnant with my son, I didn’t need to shave my legs or armpits for practically the entire pregnancy. I just didn’t grow hair for some reason. Hormones I guess. At any rate, glad to hear you don’t have a thyroid condition. I, unfortunately, have hypothyroidism. Will have it for the rest of my life. Hmmmm…
    Have a lovely weekend.
    🙂 ❤

    • So sorry my friend for your troubles.
      At least I don’t have lumps or abnormality to the organ. We will see what the vials say as to its performance.
      Have a great weekend. Can’t wait to see your latest work!

      • Oh no worries Wendy. I’m used to it. It’s all under control. I just have to take meds every morning and it keeps it functioning fine. 🙂
        Hope you had a great weekend and that your blood work comes back normal.
        🙂 ❤
