I had wondered about this for a while –If I was in menopause or close to it?
A simple little blood test said yes, yes I am on the tail end side of pre-memo pause.
And now I can once and for all say I am truly sorry for being a snappy bitch lately – my hormones are making me do it.
And yes, when I started crying the other day for NO reason – again the hormones.
No sleeping through the night for me – check.
Irritability – BIG CHECK
Hot Flashes – had those a few months ago but I chalked it up to radiation after effects – it could have been a double whammy?
Crashing fatigue, anxiety, mental confusion, itchy skin – check, check, check and check.
Now these I still chalk up to recent surgery and new chemo, but I could be wrong??
What if once I do go through full menopause I am a whole new person, with this new memory and energy?
Well you are right, menopause isn’t going to give me back that part of my – I will be curious to see how this plays out.
