I am wondering what is "full blown menopause"--
I have been told that if I stop taking my HRT (3 mg estridiol) that my body will 'kick in' menopause mode, and supposedly do some serious damage.
I cannot afford my medications--even generics. (DimwitH lost his job, never told me. No, there is no money coming in. He refuses to get unemployment.)
I have talked to my OB/GYN & Nurse about this, and she has said she'd help. Nada.
I have given up hope. I am taking 'leftovers' (from times when the HRT didn't work, etc...desperate to take 'something'). The nurse doesn't like that approach, yet, I cannot do anything about it. I have done the pharmaceutical assistance route--you still need $$ to pay for your drugs.
The stress is killing me, and my body is loaded with so many different dosages of (various) hormones, I don't know what else to do...I am sure my body is paying more than its fair share of the 'price'.
I guess I have lost my faith.
