Part Two --- Day 267

Walk: Opera Plaza Theater (How To Survive A Plague); AMC Theater (Looper); Trader Joe's
Distance: 2.5 miles

HRT has two distinct parts.  Part One is estrogen which most women who elect to take would agree is all good.  The following quote from a medical website may give some insight into this: Estrogen is considered to play a significant role in women’s mental health. 

Part Two is progesterone.  Here is a list of 'commion' side effects: Bloating; breast tenderness; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; fluid retention; headache; irritability; mild hair loss; muscle pain; nausea; spotting or breakthrough bleeding; stomach pain or cramping; tiredness; vomiting.  (You don't want to know about the more severe ones).  Ie, rampant PMS plus.  A friend of mine had an agreement with her husband that they would not speak to each other during the days she was on Part Two.  Maybe a reason their marriage still stands while many of their contemporaries have gone separate ways? Anyway, such is the flare up potential of Part Two.

I'm just saying...

PS - Thumbs up on 'How to Survive a Plague' and especially 'Looper' - the latter a terrific movie even though I'm not the least bit into time travel.
