Hello Joy, and welcome!

My transition to menopause was also very abrupt. I have not been tormented by hot flashes, or weight gain (but that's probably because I made a conscious decision on my birthday back in April to lose weight and get fit.) I have, however, been on an emotional roller coaster, which I chalk up to hormones. My thermostat may not be broken, but my libido has died: it's as though someone flipped a switch and cut the power! SO unfair! Being on this site helps. I enjoy reading about other people's struggles and triumphs, and get a kick out of some very humerous posts! You are in good company here.

First I have to say. Finally a place where I feel comfortable stating what is going on with my body.

I abruptly started menopause and simply the thermostat is broken. During the day - up to 6 hot flashes an hour. Muscle mass is rapidly turning to fat. I am not a candidate for hormone replacement therapy.

At night I am either freezing or boiling. There is no happy medium. I am hoping to converse with others who are going through this stage of life.

There will come a day you can no longer do this. Today is not that day!
