Today I think I spent at least 30 % of my Monday in tears and sweating like I was in some kind of sauna. I was literally only sitting at home, working.
Menopause!! Honest to goodness, why, why, why do we have to go through this malarky. My ears sweat now. How on earth does this happen?
This week I have booked to see my GP so they can throw pills down my throat so I can stop this. No, I don’t want the natural way out, I’ve already tried it all. I want the HRT in whatever form I can have it so I can attend the Hen party in London for my soon to be daughter in law on the 17 September and not feel like I look like a drowned rat after 10 minutes.
Then of course there is the wedding a month later. I want to enjoy both without me turning up like some neurotic woman who is both sweating and crying and behaving like some kind of nutcase.
Honestly, what is it that we women do not have to put up with in terms of our hormones? Seriously when that person made the planet, they certainly gave the female side of the species some serious afflictions.
Not all women go through this, and some are very lucky. They sail through life with no period pains and PMT. They have easy pregnancies and childbirth is a breeze. Then there is the remaining female population, we just suffer it all the way.
When I made the video down below, I was off my game. I had just been crying and had sat here feeling like the world was just meh. I am a bit of that again today.
It’s an up and down rollercoaster and if I didn’t know it was menopausal, I would just think I was bipolar. That wouldn’t be such a shock to me at all.
Anyone else going through this?
Anyone suffering a partner going through it? Any ideas?
