Is it getting hot in here?

Since I turned 35 this year, I am officially old. To be honest, this is the first birthday that actually bothered me. In getting old, that means natural menopause is right around the corner.

Now with my hormone issues that I have written about extensively in the past, I somewhat welcome this. However, that also means that I am old again. Sigh. I am certainly not looking forward to sleepless nights (oh wait, I stay up all night and work now already) and hot flashes (though I am cold most of the time, so maybe that will solve that problem). To be honest, any changes in my hormone levels scare the crap out of me. I never want to go back to what happens when I have kids (my body doesn't correctly regulate my hormone levels so I get what I call the neverending period). If menopause throws my body out of whack, I am little worried about how it will react.

However, who knows — when that time comes, I may not have any issues. Or I may have only a couple symptoms. I am going to try not to worry about it now.

For those going through or having gone through menopause, what have to done to cope? Any advice for the rest of us?

  1. don't get me started. I'm 40…. something and I've had this going on the last couple of weeks. Makes me nuts. I open the window and close the window. turn the ceiling fan on turn it off…. driving hubby nuts. Lol

  2. I believe I am on the cusp of menopause (the bad cusp, not the good one, sadly), so I'll be open to the suggestions of others. Good luck!
