PMS during menopause 😳
I never thought I’d say this, but I’m really looking forward to my Zoladex injection tomorrow. Why? So it will continue to keep me in artificial menopause, so these PMS symptoms can bugger off again!! 🤨. So yeah, PMS and artificial menopause, both at the same time. Who woulda thunk it.
So basically, I get 3 weeks of feeling wonderful, and then one week of feeling moody, overly sensitive, angry, sore, tired etc, just like I did when I was not in artificial menopause. Had to check with the McGrath nurse to make sure I wasn’t going insane, and yeah, Zoladex tends to start wearing off towards the end of the 28 days, before the next injection is due.
Feeling these PMS symptoms again, after having felt the freedom of not having them, made me realise just how tough they were, and how hard it was going through all that every single month for almost 30 years!! Not to mention the actual period, which lasted 7 days and was heavy. My goodness, what a freaking Wonder Woman I am!!! All that, while working and life in general!! And then for men to have the audacity to say to me ‘why are you so angry??’ Knowing full well exactly why 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️.
On top of that, my right hand is numb and weak thanks to Letrozole. I can’t feel anything with it. Can barely open a jar. Joints and body aches when getting up, takes a minute to be able to walk and move.
All I gotta say is, to all of us incredibly strong and wonderful women, is: I am strong, I am invincible (although don’t always feel like it), I am woman! 👊🏻💪🏻🦸♀️👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. It’s slowly becoming my new favourite song.
Love to all ♥️
