I keep reading about different symptoms of Menopause. I have not had menses since October of last year, but I still get hot flashes. I wake up in the middle of the night, get irritated at the drop of a hat (not lately though) and feeling blah & the blues often.
I am so thankful that I've lost 70 lbs and wearing shorts & snug t-shirts.
Never a bikini again though, my tummy & upper thigh are wrinkly & bumpy.
My 54th birthday is approaching (Saturday) and wow it's going to be so nice. Friday will be lunch with my dad, Friday night BBQ with my brother and Saturday beach trip with my daughter!
Don't have swimsuit yet, will wait till end of season & buy on clearance.
Well it's been another hot day today, can't tell if it's my hot flashes or the actually heat. Then I feel heat in back of neck & sudden cooling, & know it's a hot flash.
Life is lovely! :)
