cuz i am on days off mon/tues!
i am not sleeping well lately...it is the multiple hot flashy thing. and it is striking many times during the day/night now so i guess finally fulltime for real menopause decided i was worthy. if the mood swings decide to appear and if they are as drastic as the silent searings....i would humbly suggest that everyone prepare early, just in case, and wear body armour when they are near me. apparently ebbing and raging hormones may take over my world...this so might not be fun.
i can't imagine too many things worse then a hormonal borderline crazy rescuer...that is pretty damn scary...good thing i never did get a gun.
back in the 70's the docs put my mom (and many other poor women) on valium, i guess to keep violent crimes down..in the 80'and 90's we decided to torture mares and kill foals and came up with the brilliant idea of premarin to control menopause...and in the years 2000+ apparently there are all kinds of more natural and safer (?) things to try.
but i have a feeling that if my hormones need to turn me inside out and upside down and roast me alive in mid life, there might be a very good reason. i think i will bow to their greater knowledge of whatever the hell they are doing.
so i am apologising early (while i am still somewhat sane...)...everyone take a deep breath, step back and keep yourselves safe until i get thru this.
Carol, ask your doc to prescribe chlonidine. They are tiny blue pills that have saved me from night sweats & hot flashes during business meetings! It's not a hormone. It was originally developed/used as a blood pressure pill but they found that it also reduce menopausal symptoms. I couldn't live without it!
