this blah, blah mood i'm in, and my blasé attitude is just not me. i just turned 50 last month. its nice to see the surprise on people's faces when i tell them that. but i'm 50 just the same and have been experiencing periminopausal symptoms for 2 years now - although i didn't discover it until about a year ago! then the hot flashes started and i, of course, went on the internet to better inform myself. that's when i realized i had been having night sweats for the past year. and i thought i was waking up full of perspiration, with my nightshirt - an oversized T - soaked around the neck, chest and underarms because of the fleece blanket i was under - air conditioning on to relieve my allergy symptoms.
this was a revelation and i started thinking about life a little differently.
i have to cut this short right now. my daughters' school nurse just called and one of my twins sick. i hope to continue this later, at some other time when i am, again, uninspired.
