HOT FLASHES, SWEATING (WORSE @ NITE), & MOOD SWINGS can take a toll on me and my family. My poor husband has to sleep in another room @ times because when the hot flashes are intense I need the ceiling fan on. I kick the blankets and comforter off putting it him which makes him hotter. Once the "flash" is over I need my blankets pulling them off him @ times. My mood changes (either I'm crying or feel really angry), difficulty concentrating & communicating, noise sensitivty, AND MY CHRONIC PAIN IS WORSE! I wanna scream but it wouldn't change anything. I really don't want to take more medication. I'm taking SSRI for depression (n remission), Multi-vit for menopausal women, B12 (becuz of weight loss surgery-gastric sleeve), Lyrica & muscle relaxer for chronic pain. I joking say that when I get to Heaven and see Eve, I gonna kick her. I just started using soy based product but its too soon to know if its effective. Being a woman & a DIVA 4 THE LORD. Ain't easy. Keep me in your prayers. I must say I'm blessed because I look good @ 48. Halleluyer & PEACE 2 ALL!
