Hi Aries8, I haven't had my hormone levels checked, how do they do that? I actually have my annual gyno appt. next week. It stinks in a way that I can't eat any sweets or chocolate without it happening but then again that food isn't good for you anyway! I can tell my hormones are changing because my moods are. I seem to be EXTREMELY sensitive. I actually walked out of my job 3 weeks ago because my boss did something that I took very personally. I think walking out might have been a little irrational especially since the economy is really bad and there are so many people out of work. I am so out of shape, I really think I need to start walking and exercising etc. I used to ride my bike all the time and play tennis and ski, now I don't do anything and since I'm not working I am so lazy. Thanks for your input.
