So I’m a Little Conflicted….

There won’t be a pertinent picture taken by me, or even one that I acquired while writing this.

I don’t blog as much as I used to, because of life, the day job and society. I’m actually not blaming society, although, it does make me hesitant to talk about how I feel regarding politics and life as we know it.

I’ve also started writing commentary at Medium, ( and I am conflicted about sharing that link here, simply because I’ve attacked people that have been anonymously named, but in my circle of people? Those people would pretty much be recognized, as would I for calling them out.

That said? I am mentally putting together my “other” blog that will deal with menopausal bullshit (that even the most cool, not old ladies can relate to and even get together to bullshit about,) products that will help us get through this heinous bit of crap that Mother Nature seems to see fit to put upon us, even though we’ve all gone through periods, cramps, and the all-time bitch of pain? Childbirth. Because we haven’t already been through enough? Ma Nature curses us with Menopause. Β And it sucks.

I’m not going to be that woman that states how easy “The Change of Life” is. It’s not. It’s a bitch, and I am understating this. (Sorry, Mom…it is what it is, and this just SUCKS!)

I’m suddenly sleeping with a hand towel to blot up the immense amounts of sweat that my body seems to want to produce at 350 degrees F while I’m in bed. There is regularly a lake between my boobs, and that is with the household thermostat set at 68 degrees. ARRRGH!

I wil be honest with you guys; I’m looking into CBD’s to try and kill the worst of the symptoms that I’m experiencing. If those work? You can cool believe that I’ll be sharing any successes with you here.

All I can say, at this point, is that I’m tremendously grateful to my husband, who has been basically a saint during this transitional time for me. I couldn’t ask for a better partner during this time of upheaval in my life.

Do any of you have menopausal stories that will make me feel better?

Until next time…

    I can so relate to the “lake between my boobs”. I never considered it part of my “symptoms”. I’m still in the “pre” stages but it sucks nonetheless. The air conditioner and fans are becoming my new BFFs. I’ll be trying cbd oil for other reasons, but heck, if it helps with this as well, I’ll be eternally grateful.

    • Hi, Lynn! Nice to meet you. Fans are AMAZING things, aren’t they? πŸ˜‰

      My CBD’s should be here Thursday of this week, so I’ll start them then, and will do an entire blog post about it a couple of days after, provided there is some kind of relief.

      Thanks for visiting, and come back anytime! πŸ™‚
