I have been having NO periods since Babs and Lyme and chronic gut problems and skin problems ever sine and horrible weight and illness, fatigue, can't sleep. What makes it hard is I homeschool a special needs child, and I don't have the energy anymore to do it, plus menopause symptoms, chronic sleep problems, gut problems and nasty weight gain. I haven't been this big since the last time I was five months pregnant. I don't think I can be pregnant since I have already been perimenopausal and are only nine months away from my 50th birthday! I have started exercising again but previous intolerances I had, like lactose, beans, onions, etc and sensitivity to fiber has only GOTTEN worse. I am tired and hungry all the time and have no energy and I frustrate my special needs child because I can't engage like before and I just think I am not as "interesting" and "fun". I am not sure I could have been this way for the gifted one, either. I don't know what to do. People say, get more sleep, each a less irritating diet, but that would require major changes it seems the others are not willing to do. It's really getting me down. My spouse doesn't understand I NEED a BREAK to recover. I NEED HELP. Not just "time heals all things", not "we just don't have the money" I literally don't have the ability to function anymore. I am willing to exercise more and make diet changes, I have started, but I need more sleep, more help in teaching our special needs kid, more change to the diet, not just a little. Everyone likes onions, I can't handle them even well cooked. My sweet spouse made a dinner last night with none, but it had beans and even after a little I felt SICk and gassed ALL NIGHT and couldn't sleep as I was up every 60-90 minutes in the BATHROOM! My special needs kid is FRUSTRATED with me because I find it hard to teach and do things he finds interesting. I really need some time to myself a couple of hours a day, not just for exercise, but to relax, take a slower pace. I want to see a doctor but all I hear "not yet.." No I need to see one NOW and I NEED HELP. I can't even carry on today, it seems. I need more than just a "you'll get better." Sure I will but I am really suffering NOW. It sounds hopeless, it's not, I just don't feel good at all today and needed to vent!
