I guess my attitude with health care is not so positive I think its a death care...a money making system a crutch.. I have no faith in the system.. I only go to the doctor once a year for the well woman's and I am in perfect health.. No faith...in modern medicine...But I can't seem to find anything to help with my sleep due to the heat...

there are so many meds that have side effects..but they also do a lot of good.. like if you were a diabetic would you refuse to take meds for that and just die in a diabetic coma..and insulin has a lot of side effects.. what about high blood pressure would you not take meds for that and they have side effects also.. I could go on and on ..I take HRT I also take thyroid meds I have a low funtioning thyroid I would not be able to function if I did not take them..so I guess we have to decide what quality of life we want.. take a chance and feel great or be miserable for years..I have on HRT for 16 years and feel great I'm 67 so I think its all about what risk you are willing to take..and it is an individual decision each of us must make..
good luck with whatever you decide..and feel free to ask any questions..
