I am on Day 16 of my first Whole30. I had several motivations for taking on this challenge, but one of the biggest was hormonal balance. I have suspected (without support from my doctors or testing, because #healthcareinamerica) that I am suffering from a hormonal imbalance. This presents itself in many ways, but the most noticeable is intense emotional sensitivity and depression around / during my period.
I am trying so hard to stay committed to the program, but I feel like my hormonal symptoms have gotten significantly worse. I literally cry at the drop of a hat, my hormonal acne has flared, and I am exhausted. I keep checking the timeline, reading my “Day-by-Day”, and pushing through but it isn’t getting better. I am holding out for the promise of tiger blood, but I don’t know how much longer I can put up with this. My poor husband is a trooper, but I’m pretty sure I am making him miserable.
Has anyone experienced this?
