So it's been about a year- officially. Truthfully this all started over 11 years ago with the arrival of my first period including hospital inducing pain.
But 10 years later (about a year ago).
I stared sleeping through alarms. I started needed 12 or more hours of sleep, but I struggled with insomnia. I was getting weaker and exhausted. I was hungry all of the time. My acne and hair growth got worse again. A blood sugar roller coaster- the likes of which I hadn't experienced since hormones first appeared- was impossible to get a handle on. My anxiety couldn't be tamed or helped with self-care or my meds.
