Middleaged menopausal maniac

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Not that I am alone in this but just wish to share.

These arenít hot flashes. They are power surges.

I have been experiencing hot flushes far too regularly of late and yesterday at work I was a boiling pot of heat. Looking for my makeshift cardboard fan and it was missing. What to do now?

The girls I work with frantically searched for another as they know how hot I get.

They move away from me and go "Here she goes again" "There she blows" All in good humour.

Hugging my husband at times and he pushes me away and says "Oh my I really felt the heat that time."

Wasn't menstrual pain, childbirth, mammograms and pap smears enough? Now we have to suffer hot sweats and the need to change our clothes more than once a day?

Some days they only make an appearance once. Other days they seem to have the need to drive me insane.

Oh the joys of being a woman!!!

Happy days Indeed!!!

    An icecube in a baggy, wrapped in a hankie, strategically placed between the "girls" helps.

The only time I'm bothered anymore is if I happen to eat meat that has been treated with hormones in some way. I buy meat tagged that it's not treated with them when possible. I also have issues with soy so avoid it.

Cooler days ahead dear friend!

    One good thing about being more mature is the "tropical moments" as my husband used to call them are no longer around. It does get better!!!!!! it is not just a dream. emoticon

    Yeah, I totally understand - when I started dripping sweat on my students' drawing paper, I finally went to my dr and got on soy-based HRT! What a difference that made (although there are still the few random hot spots).

    Been there done that! these days i am just sweating
from the heat and humidity. I hope you get through
the rest of your menopause with less 'power surges'.
Tell Barry that this too shall pass. Joys of womanhood.

    I'm just starting to see the signs of menopause setting in. I guess it's called perimenopause? I've found my face is really flushing and my cycle is getting weird....oh joy. Also, unrelated, I'm sure but my eyesight is changing to the point where I'm noticing it. Oh, we'll I will be 47 in less than a month and my mom went through it all at age 35!
