Like "Welcome to the club no one wants to belong to! I've been on hormones since age 30 (now on the patch) due to a complete hysterectomy for endometriosis. The RX was minor compare to finding out at age 19 I could not have children. I had headaches on the pills, but not the patch. Then I had a series of sinus infections and was not able to work for 2 years. After that I developed sleep apnea, high blood pressure, acid reflux and diabetes a year later. I o believe in preventative medicine, but each person's body responds differently. I am so blessed my husbands RX copays are only $5-20. I pay 0 for lancets and $10 for strips. I'm 58 and still able to dance! Kate"
