Making it Plain

Mental Health

I want it to be clear and let you know that our hormones (estrogen and progesterone) impact our mental health. And that imbalances between these two hormones can make us physically and emotionally sick.

I should know, I was one of those sick people.

Yep, me… about 6 years ago. I struggled to take baths every day and brush my teeth. I used to dream of dying. I cried uncontrollably and battled major mood swings. I heard scary voices. I almost ran my car off of the road because they were tormenting me so bad. I hid in closets during lightning storms because I thought God was trying to kill the demons in me!!

Why did I do all of that you ask?

Me: I did all of that because I was sick. I was merely responding to my body.
I heard ghosts and so I was scared. And I operated out of this fear.

Mental illness is not something you try to be.
It’s nothing you sign up for.

Nope.

Bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are so painful that you wouldn’t even wish it on your worse enemy. It’s that bad. It least it was for me.

But I’m getting off track. I just want you know that the life I used to live when I was bipolar, was hell and I’m so glad to be rid of it.

Taking progesterone for me has made all the difference.

I wish the same freedom for you.

Recovery is possible. Believe.
