I do not feel great physically yet, but I do at least feel hopeful. I think just having an idea of what's going on has lifted a major burden from my shoulders. There for a while, I was sure it was mental and I just needed to "snap out of it". When I couldn't, then I'd get even more down and well you know, it's a terrible cycle. Thank you all for the prayers and please keep them up.

Well, this week I finally have some answers (I HOPE) to how I've been feeling the last several months. I must say it is really a relief to at least KNOW what's going on. I had a hysterectomy several years ago and they left my ovaries so that I wouldn't have to take hormone replacement therapy at the time. Now I'm in menopause so the doctor has started me on some hormones. I think that explains a great deal about how I've been feeling. From what Tom and I have read, it affects everything, even allergies! Speaking of allergies, I had the allergy test on Tuesday. I'm allergic to ragweed, pigweed, mountain cedar, and red cedar. Between them, they are in the air about 9-10 months out of the year. Oh and I'm allergic to cats, but I already knew that one. LOL. The allergy doctor and the regular doctor both want me to see a pulmonologist about my asthma. I also have a decision to make about whether to take the allergy shots. So I ask you to continue to pray for me and pray that the medicines start helping and I start feeling better.
