Remember as a kid, someone would hide something and then they would tell you how close you were getting to that object by how "hot" you were?
Yeah, menopause it's nothing like that!
One minute, you're as cool as a cucumber, the next minute, you feel like you're a kettle about to blow your top.
When I was going through cancer, I was thrown into the wonderful world of menopause. Not only was I dealing with the whole cancer thing...treatments and recovery...but I had to rediscover how my body was working.
Every little trick I did prior just stopped working...which was so frustrating. I was gaining weight no matter what I was doing. I couldn't sleep more than 4 hours a night, and that my friends, was considered a good night.
Now cue the hot flashes! No matter what I was doing, if I did more than breathe, I'd break out into a sweat. I saw a quote once that said, "Since I get just as sweaty, can I count my hot flashes as mini workouts?" Wouldn't that be great!
