You could start with taking short walks. I have a back disability so I am limited to what exercises I can do. Have you thought about swimming? I also have High Cholesterol to which I am unable to take the meds for so changing my diet and supplements has given me more incentive, ambition, and enthusiasm(sp).View Thread
Have you tried using moisturizing creams? I use one for daytime hrs and then an evening one. There are varieties for deep wrinkles and so on. If you are using a facewash of any kind it may be too harsh so you may want to use a less chemical based one. If you wash or rinse your skin often, water alone can dry out your skin. If you smoke cut back or quit. Same with alcohol use. The sun and outdoor elements also are drying(so is a tanning bed).
Having a hysterectomy does not relieve you of experiencing the effects of menopause or peri-menopause(same things in both, level or degree may change). Sounds like that is the issue but you really need to talk with your doctor.View Thread
HRT is abbrev. for Hormone Replacement Therapy. I had sleep problems with perimenopause and still now with menopause. Anxiety level was very high during perimenopause, I think it was more so linked to the events in my life. In Nov. 2010 I had an endrometrial ablation which of course as you know does Wonders for the wavy menstral cycle. It's like the new partial hysterectomy I guess. Afterwards I still experienced some of the emotional trubulents of peri & menopause. Things have gotton much better for me in those regards. I do not take HRT's, I modified my diet and lifestyle to help ease the symptoms.View Thread
