Hi, I did call her and leave the message about the new T. And she called back. My T is good but a little absentminded sometimes. Like I had foot surgery on Thursday. When she left the message about the new T, she left another one saying she would try to call me the day after surgery 'if she could' but she didn't. Things like that. I knew she wouldn't either. She is kind of unreliable like that. And to me that stinks! I don't like that about her. I am very upset right now. I had foot surgery on Thursday and have a huge cast on my leg all the way up to my knee. Right now I am mad at the world. It is very hard getting around with this huge cast on. Was supposed to get a home health aide and place said they couldn't find anyone. Grrr! Not good when you have come home from surgery and are not supposed to be on your feet. When exactly is your T retiring? Mine is in about 3 weeks. By the way, I went through menopause with my T and didn't even know I was going through it until I was in it and had gone through it! My periods were getting lighter and I thought I was in peri-menopause. Then went to GYN who did labwork and said I was in menopause and should not be having any light periods. They did a D & C but everything Thank God came back normal. So don't worry about menopause. You will be OK. I promise! That was sweet what you said to her though about your ovaries. Would you have really done it? Let me know. Take care, friesandcoke

We didn't talk about it much today -- just mentioned the nightmares I had last week the night after our session (nothing directly about her leaving -- rather about something horrible happening to me and her not being there to help fix it). I'm numb right now. I think it was too much for me last week.

I may change my mind later, but I don't think so. I did tell her today that if I'd known she was leaving that soon, I would have had them take my ovaries when I had my hysterectomy last month. She said, "But then you would be in menopause." I told her I that was the point -- that I could go through menopause while I still had her. I can't believe I had to tell her that.
