Wow end of March. I can't believe I've been so lax in posting. I have a good excuse though....menopause. It's all I can do when I get home from work is pour a glass of wine and vegetate on the recliner. I've been taking everything out there to relieve the discomfort. I remember hearing " starting your periods later will make menopause easier, more pregnancies will make it easier, breast feeding with make it easier" ALL LIES. If this is "easier" I'd hate to experience "harder". My sister, has less pregnancies, started periods in grade 5 (did breast feed though) and she is older than me by 16 months and I started about a year before her but we are both in the depths of menopause and both are in hell. Although I think I have it harder than her....
The handful of supplements I take twice a day I thought were almost usless until two days ago I forgot to take them in the evening and had the "worst" night of my life. So maybe, they might be helping, I admit that grudgingly only because I wonder how much longer I have to take these things.
I bought a book about it, but haven't bothered reading it yet, because I can't committ to anything right now. I just don't have the patience to sit and read anything other than a crossword these days. I can't believe how lazy I've become. And the damn hot flashes are making me crazy.
I'm tired of the supplements - evening primrose oil, multi minerals, vitamin d, mega antioxidants, menosense, calcium mag, vitamin c, b complex.
Then there's the essential oils, Solace and Transitions, one is for hot flashes, one is for hormone balancing. I smell like a pine forest.
Every morning I have a serving of yogurt with either strawberries, or blueberries and trail mix. (only because I've been testing this to loose some wieght around my gut, amazingly it seems to be working for the weight loss) so I'm kinda addicted to this because maybe it's got something to do with regulating the hormone inbalance never know.
So I've also added drinking the supplements down with blueberry juice...don't ask me why, I don't know why...but why not.
I just want to be able to get some sleep at night. I can't remember the last time I didn't want to have a nap in the middle of the day.
It's a good think I set my own schedule for the clients that I have. I don't know how women who have to work 8 hours a day manage this.
Although I haven't posted anything like forever, I still manage to read some other blogs, I just wsant to ask, How do all these people manage to post something all the time. I'm beggining to thing they have no life or are self absorbed or ...something. No offense to anyone. But how do you all do it everyday? although I do enjoy several of them.
So here's the post for March hopefully I will post again before June.
