The Normal Days of Long Ago

I found this post from another message board and had to post it, fits me perfectly and I am sure many of you out there as well. What is your new normal?

What is normal? I don't know anymore. It seems I've made enough new normals over the last few years that my old normal has been lost.

What I would like this (hopefully) last new normal to be is:
1. Getting up and making it through the day without:
a. Anxiety
b. Depression
c. Sadness
d. Fear
e. ?? There could be a long list if I continued.
2. Some sense of contentment. I don't even aspire to be Happy any longer. Just content.

That's what I remember about my old normal. Days when I just WAS. No problems, just existed and did my thing. Oooooh, I really long for those things.

Have you tried HRT? Made a difference in my life.

Re: The Normal Days of Long Ago

Just tried Estradiol, gave me heart palps...so estrogen is out of the question and progesterone makes me super tired. Just gonna try to ride the wave I guess.

Thanks for that post! It made me laugh(which is very infrequent for me). It helps to know that I am not the only one feeling like this! Content sounds so wonderful!

Re: The Normal Days of Long Ago

WOW!! I can sure relate! I feel the same way!

HRT and Birth Control are not for everyone and can make you feel even worse. That is what happened to me. I felt completely out of whack!

I think that is what is great about these boards, it helps us to know that we are not alone. I just wish I could feel like a human again!

Here's to Normal Days in our Future!!
