first a big hello to everybody, this is my first post! I am a (young!) 42 in June and at the beginning of this year it was discovered I had a very large fibroid. I am now on the fourth month of Zoladex implants to shrink the horrible thing before a hysterectomy (on my birthday, cheers) and have fast-tracked into the menopause. I expected the hot-flushes which in the first two months seemed just like one long flush but since the last implant I can hardly keep my eyes open and the dizziness is dreadful. I also feel pain in my feet and hands first thing in the morning, sensitiviy to touch, and itching. I can tolerate this until the op but I certainly don't want it afterwards, and am worried about re-introducing hormones into my body as I suffered almost psychotic PMT when "intact" as it were. Any ideas about "natural" foods etc.? Thank you for reading this long post anyway! Love to all. Lisa x

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
