MenoPause Sucks!

So what exactly is supposed to "Pause" now? It's not the monthly's and PMS seems to be permanent (at least the family thinks so). I can go from "WOOHOO - the day has started" to crying to depressed to angry - and that's just the first hour of the day when I'm the only one awake!! ARG!!




My memory is crap. It's never been the greatest but now...
If I don't write down EVERYTHING it doesn't get done. Luckily I can get up, start coffee, pack lunches & start breakfast in my sleep, or most days hubby would have to buy lunch. And luckily I've driven the same school bus route for the last 7 years - could almost do it with my eyes closed.


Don't get me started on hot flashes! They were gone for 2 years, now they are back worse than ever :( Hubby thinks "hot" flashes means I'm horny. WHAT?!! Are you Kidding?!!




I finally decided to go to a local herbal shop to see if they had something that would help. They gave me these pills to help with:
  • Mood Swings
  • Hot Flashes
  • Insomnia
  • Stress & fatigue
  • Decreased Libido
  • Improves memory


Now if only I could remember to take them. Put them on the table right where I set my plate - maybe then I'll remember.

  3. For some unknown reason (I know, I'm blessed) I never went through any of this (at least not that I know of). Hang in there, maybe it will get better.

  8. I've heard from family members that this is not a fun thing to deal with. I'm hoping that the herbs do you some good and that this will all be over with soon. ♥

  9. Ha, ha, that brought a chuckle and something I could so relate to. Believe me when I tell you, this too shall pass:):) I am over it and it feels great, so hang in there.
