Menopause. Ugh.

Last year I started having hot flashes. I thought they were awful! I slept with a fan blowing on me every night. {My poor hubby hated that but put up with it.} I started becoming more moody- grumpy at times, weepy at others. I felt like I was not in control, and that drove me nuts!

Well, The nasty menopause witch reared her ugly head at me two weeks ago and said, "HA! You thought THAT was bad. Just wait till you see what I have in store for you now!" She is a cruel thing, that menopause witch. So horribly cruel. {I swear she likes to see me suffer.}

She wasn't even remotely kidding when she warned me worse days were ahead.

A few days ago I started to get hot flashes that made me feel like I was surrounded by hot, burning coals. Oh, and I wasn't just hot; I started sweating- profusely. I'm talking about the kind of sweat that soaks your ENTIRE body! {Have you ever had a full arm cast on? Do you have any idea how uncomfortable it is when you get sweaty inside that cast? Let me tell you, You lose your mind!}What little makeup I can manage to get on with this cast melts off my face in ugly streaky lines. My hair is soaked. {Gross!} I even have to change my clothes several times. I am NOT happy about this!

Menopause sucks.

I don't know how long I can put up with this before I really snap.  Ugh.

smh...the night sweats are pouring from my body as I read this. Lol. After having no choice but to have an early hysterectomy, I have been in "perimenopause" for what feels like a lifetime now. The night sweats are bad enough but the hot flashes are absolutely unbearable! I am a server at a fairly high class restaurant. Do you have any clue how disgusting and embarrassing it is to deliver a guest's dinner with sweat dripping from my face? Eww! Gross! I've read that acupuncture is actually a safe and pretty effective treatment for hot flashes. Who knows? At this point I'm willing to try anything! Oh and makeup? Ha! I don't even bother anymore! Best wishes for a speedy transition through this hell for you Colleen. Know that you are NOT alone sister!
