Huh…I guess I lied about that whole needing a break from blogging thing. Oh well…I’m sure that’s neither the first nor the last time I’ll do that. So damn moody.
And speaking of moody, I’ve been learning that I’m a complete and utter robot, and that so much of the discomfort I feel in life comes down to two things – not having enough sugar in my diet and not having enough progesterone in my body. For long periods of time I’ve been an irritable, tired person — increasingly over the past 2 years, but I’ve had serious bouts before that. It wasn’t until I learned of the joys of consuming simple sugars that the fatigue started to dissipate, after many months of low-carb. And it wasn’t till I tried progesterone supplementation (specifically Progest E) that I realized I’m not a jerk. The estrogen in me is a jerk. Or maybe the prolactin. Hard to say – I think they’re in cahoots.
Now, when I get hungry/tired/cold, I drink orange juice or eat sweet fruit, and within 10 minutes I’m satisfied, alert, and warm. (Juice does the trick faster.)
When I find myself being a bitch, thinking Ray Peat is an idiot, or hating something about my life, I take 6 drops of Progest E and within 20 minutes I’m calm, nice, and happy. And a much better mom/wife.
It’s fairly amazing.
So next time I’m on here complaining about something, just tell me to go drink some juice and hit the progesterone.
I now accept that I have no free will.
