My Mom needs HELP, and I will do anything possible to make her feel happy again!!

Hello, I am reaching out today because my mom (who is 64 years old) went through a Total Hysterectomy approx 20 years ago. She had endometriosis. She had no help from the Doctors back then. I'm pretty sure the Dr prescribed her some kind of patch they used back then, but she hated the way it made her feel and was scared of the side effects.
Fast forward twenty years... We have watched my mom lose every bit of her happiness and quality of life. I recently have started HRT with my physician (I am 43) I am taking Progesterone tablets (maybe I need the cream after reading alot of this forum) and testosterone cream (maybe I dont need it??) I am still learning. After I started learning about hormones, I spoke to Mom about going to the Dr. She finally did (one month ago) and the Dr prescribed her something like Estroidal or something like that. I am sure it is Fake stuff? My mom can not afford to go to the HRT doctor where I go and she will not allow me to pay for her to go.
We have watched my Momma go from the sweetest mother in the world to someone who we really dont even know anymore?? She constantly is sweating like crazy, she says she hates the way she looks, how she feels, and also how bad the sweating is that she really wont even come out of her house at all. She has had Hot Flushes for TWENTY YEARS. Thats INSANE!!
All I am looking for is someone that could help out with what she should do? Do you think that Progesterone only would help her? I forgot to to mention that she is also HYPO and takes medicine for that also.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart...From the daughter who just wants her sweet loving mother back.
