Menopause

Nobody really warned me about Menopause.

When we are in 5th grade, they bombard us with Puberty information–what’s going to happen. We are not left clueless. Not so with menopause.

I had a friend tell me that it ended for her the same way puberty started: She had a big huge shake to her system, and puberty started. She had a big huge shake and menopause was over.

Hot flashes are especially annoying. I experience two kinds. One is just my face burning, like my face is being barbequed.  Then I have the full-body hot flashes that feel like I am being barbequed. This is especially fun  while I am sleeping during the winter, and kick the covers off. I then wake up freezing, covered in sweat. Good times.

I asked my doctor if there was a way to speed it up. She said no. Maybe this could be the next drug developed????
