Mondays...


I have recieved several e-mails today wanting to know if I was ok. Thank You!! It feels good to know somebody notices when I am not here...
Here is a sample of my average day :
12 AM: Wake up hot flashing. Strip Naked. Lay there til I cool off and try not to wake up Dale.
12:20 AM: Give up on that bullshit. If he wakes up, he wakes up. Crawl out of bed. Start freezing. Put warm dry jama's back on. Shut the french doors and go lay on the couch. Fall asleep...
1:00 AM: 17 year cat with Kidney and Kitty Alzheimer's disease wakes me up yowling like he is part Siamese because he wants tuna fish juice. He thinks...no.. he wants water...no...he changed his mind. He wants outside. No... wait it is cold out there and he is afraid of the dark these days. I take him outside. He wants right back in. We cuddle up under the blanket again, on the couch.
1:30 AM: Fall asleep again.
2:ooAM: Wake up with another Hot flash. Strip naked til I cool off. Now I am freezing and I need to go back in the bedroom to get more dry jammy's. Open the French doors...Wake up Dale. Dale turns into Satan. Satan falls back to sleep. I crawl in bed and fall asleep again.
2:30 AM: Repeat scenario 1...plus the Cat starts his thing again.
3:00 AM: Rpeat all every half hour until 5:30 or 6 AM if I am lucky.
6 AMish: Give up. Get up and make coffee. Answer all email as caffiene kicks in.
JEESH I am getting tired reading this. I better go take a nap and finish it later....

If you ever get the opportunity up there in Boise, check out "Menopause, The Musical". It's hysterical and it sounds like you would really appreciate the humour! :-)

You poor thing!! Someone should make special PJ's that you could like switch to freezing and cold air would fill up the inside of your PJ's.
I'm okay. Struggling with this Effexor withdrawal, but I'm alive and ok. No hot flashes.

Understand the hot flashes!!! Do you take hormones pills??? I did but quit. The doctor doesn't like it but it's not his body!!! It is my choice... Hope your hot flashes ease off...try to get come sleep.

oh boy, i don't know how you deal with it without going nuts. satan should be glad that he's only woken up by you and not by searing hot flashes.

Oh the good ole days of menopause. Yes, I remember the hot flashes. Just why do women have to go through them? I think men to feel a hot flash now and then.

There are several company's that make nightgowns and jammies that wick up the moisture. I have one pair. Just doesn't do the trick for me...I just need to remember to keep jammie several jammies where I can get them and not wake up Satan.
