Well, my pdoc disappointed and pissed me off so much I canvased all my friends for a new one. She just keeps pushing meds at me that have crappy side effects including increased pain (Crestor), insomnia (Zyrtec D, Evista), hormonal effects (Evista), vaginitis (Evista, Zyrtec D). I asked her for bioidentical hormone replacement and she had the nerve to tell me that "research shows the HRT does not improve quality of life." She doesn't prescribe hormones for anyone. I understand all about research, really, have done it myself for a freaking PhD, but that is just a crock of shit. I've been on HRT, bioidentical HRT, and no HRT. Anybody out there with no ovaries? Can you honestly say it has not affected your quality of life? She seems concerned about keeping me alive until I'm 98, but doesn't care how I feel in meantime. Got a recommend for a DO. First available appt. is May. I took it, although I may be dead before then from pulling into the wrong lane of traffic or burning down the house. I see sleep doc again on Monday because CPAP doesn't help, and I'm going to lay it on her. Freaking crock of shit! and I mean just that.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
