    One thing I have learned this week is that having a thermal ablation done messes with your hormones BADLY. I think I have told almost everyone I know to either go to hell or how to get there(some people got a lot worse than that), crying at everything, I was tense as hell as well. Scared someone very close to me to where they thought I was close to suicide. Yesterday, I finally felt that ebb subside and started to feel like my old self. Now, I just don't want to be touched at all period.

      Ahhh justice! Glad you were in a mood and stuck to your guns - I find I get the best deals that way. As you said, he did it to himself and he should pay the costs. I have found many shortcuts that the contractor did when our house was remodeled by the previous owner and am actually tempted to see who pulled the permits for the electrical and let them have it. SO are you planning some new fun landscaping for your yard? It could be a fun diversion if it doesn't cause you to stress over it. Good exercise too and if you get the kids involved, family time (ya I know, I'm a big dreamer - our family projects are always a nightmare).

        I'm not much of a landscaper at all. Any form of a green thumb was lost on me. Plus, I really have no interest in gardening. I'm just going to let the mound settle on its and say screw it.

          Oh Geo, I could tell that your hormones were out of whack just by the nature of your posts. I may have to eventually get a full hysterectomy due to the danger of ovarian cancer. But I am hoping to get through menopause before I have to do it. I have heard that getting a full H before full menopause can send you into crazy woman mode overnight.

          Did the Docs warn you about the possible hormonal issues?

            Sorry to hear that.

            My doctor didn't warn me. Apparently, it's extremely rare for this to happen after the ablation. I'm feeling much better hormonally than I did the week after the surgery. Now, I just don't want to be touched sexually at all period. I keep wondering if it was really worth having the procedure done. I guess if it isn't one thing, it's another with me. I've tried to just have sex, but I've found not being in the mood doesn't help me much. I'll eventually figure something out.

                    Everything sounds good until you get to the cold bath part and the artificial lights. Pretty difficult to stay away from artificial lights when you work in an office building and the idea of cold baths scare me. I've been so damn cold lately, it isn't funny.


                    I keep wondering if I should tell Clint I just don't want to have sex right now. I usually keep stuff like this to myself and just do it to make him happy thinking that eventually, I'm going to turn around and everything will be normal. I kind of feel like it's never going to change. It's funny, I actually prefer to take matters into my hands, but I don't want to be touched by others. I wonder if this fairly common? I'd be happier if Clint would just hold my hand or hold me and not try to have sex with me.

                      Well after spending an hour and a half researching things, I have come to find that the ablation can't mess with hormones as it doesn't touch the ovaries. From what I've read, it seems that a great deal of women find themselves feeling depressed afterwards due to the fact they have ended their child bearing years. I have been feeling like this lately. I actually told a friend I feel like less of a woman for having this done. I haven't wanted to have anymore kids in years and all of a sudden, my body is like "Woah Nellie, we need to have a talk". I feel like I've lost a part of me and I can't seem to get it back. I actually feel as if I don't have a purpose anymore. I've been fighting this for a week-week and a half and at times it gets better but other times, it doesn't. I really don't like it when people look at me now. I want to punch them in the face when they do. I kind of feel like the circus freak that just wants to be left alone. I know people aren't looking at me in that way, but that is how I feel when I am being looked at.

                        On the plus side, I have FINALLY found a face wash that doesn't dry out my cheeks and make them red and splotchy. Burt's Bee's face wash for sensitive skin!

                          Try to remember the reason why you got the ablation. You were so miserable. I think in time you will feel incredibly free for a lot of reasons. I also think that you have the right to tell Clint what you need (or don't need) right now.

                          quelsen - great suggestions. Now I finally have a reason to take cold showers.

                            sex for the sake of sex.. something you could never do before.


                            I have to say that i have dealt with this with people close to me and it angers me that somewhere along the way someone told you that your value as a human being was inextricably tied to your ability to breed and suckle and slave for 20 or more years.

                            otherwise GTFO.


                            having said it that way can you see how revolting and demeaning it is?

                            you are valuable... period....

                            we are more than the sum of our loins....

                              I may be wrong here as I am no expert, but I don't believe that stuff about ablation not effecting horomones for one minute. We are an interconnected being and that is often overlooked in modern (western) medicine. Maybe if you checked on a site where women who have had ablation done talk aout their experiences? I bet many others have gone through what you are. Give yourself some time and treat yourself well. Food, day length, stress, etc all effect horomone levels. I'm sure this does too.

                                @Q, actually, I've been doing sex for sex sake for years. I really only have sex when Clint is in the mood for it. I never start anything with him anymore. Haven't for a few years. IDK if I consider it revolting or demeaning. It just is what it is. Its not that I've lost interest in sex...it's just complicated. That's really the only way I can describe it.

                                @Mud, I'm terrible at treating myself. Never figured that one out yet. Pretty much, I wake up, homeschool Caitlyn, make dinner, get ready for work, rinse and repeat. I don't see the other 2 kids except for on the weekends. The only nice thing with homeschooling Caitlyn is that she can pretty much take care of her own learning.
