Hot Flushes

Yesterday evening I felt quite chilly and put on sweater only to remove it a few minutes later because I thought I was about to burst into flames. I am quite used to this now, it comes and goes. Bob is always bemused by it! Still.

At bedtime my feet were freezing but the rest of me was cooking. So bed socks on and very little else, with windows and door open to get as much air through as possible and a gentle reminder to B that the fan really does need to come out of the loft so that I can keep it trained on me through the night. (he says the noise will keep him awake - oh please - once he is asleep I could jump and down on the bed and not disturb him).

Bob - "don't understand how your temperature changes so quickly so often"

Me - "well I keep you guessing don't I, you never know what's next"

Bob - "it's a bit like living with a box of chocolates".

Well I've been compared to worse things.

Apologies to Forrest Gump!

I know how you feel, I was talking to my doctor today about the exact same thing today. I am not in menopause yet, but suffer something terrible from Hot Flushes. He suggested Evening Primrose and Black Cohosh.so think I may try that.

I'm enjoying your blog.

Perhaps the fan might flush you away?

Thanks for visiting my blog - I normally only get one comment (sob) and that's from my sister who, no doubt, takes a proprietorial interest in looking after her little bro. Have another look - there's something for you!

Not sure you read my blog regularly and my brother has not quite grasped the machinations of the blogosphere - Jamie has put a special message and photo on his blog for you. The link is on my blog roll under Boyfromoz.

A box of chocolates! I've been compared to many things (including grated cheese, by implication), but never chocolates. Chocolates are so much better - LOL!
