I’m Turning 50-Years-Old & I’m Back!

50-Years-Old-blog.png

This has been a crazy year for me…

 

I bought a building and am starting a medical spa – and all of a sudden, I find myself working more, not less.

  

What the heck have I gotten myself into? 

I'm a doctor not a business person.

Or am I a business person?

 

To top it all off, I turn 50. 

What the F*CK! 

 

Perimenopause has more than set in and thank God I have a patient husband; perimenopause has not been kind to me. 

 

I'm moody, can't sleep, hot, central weight gain, bloated, nauseated, itchy, and tired.

 

There was a time that I thought to myself, I can't do this. I can hardly get up in the morning and feel good enough to take care of patients. 

 

However – and eventually, thankfully – a few of my male patients started talking to me about getting trained to do testosterone pelleting. 

 

These men were tired of driving to Colorado Springs from Pueblo, Colorado.

 

It took me a while to listen to them, but I finally attended a BioTE® training (Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy).

 

While I was at the BioTE® training, I’m thinking to myself, “This is me!”

I got pelleted during the training and haven’t looked back.

 

 

Why didn't I learn all of this in medical school? 

Why is traditional medicine against this treatment? 

The answers to those questions are very political and too much to discuss in this blog. 

 

The bottom line is: I'm BACK. 

 

I'm ready to take this on (most days).  

 

I have a new calling and it starts with helping men and women feel better inside and then I can help them feel better outside too.
