Love it

I turned 40 in August and I feel like I’m going CRAZY! I feel like there are so many changes I need to make and I have no clue as to where to start. I fell like if I take any more crap from anybody, I WILL EXPLODE!!!!!!
I cry, I laugh, I’m sick to death of night sweats and I want to slap the hell out of my husband more than I want to kiss him.
Yup!!! going CRAZY!!!!!

    • happyNo your just turning 40!!! I personally don’t turn 40 for a few months, but I have had a few friends who are 40 and are feeling the same way you are feeling, It’s almost like life has taken this wide turn, and you need to try and stay in your lane. It’s just a wide curvy turn. Just being 40 that’s all.

    • you‘re not alone Yana!  I know what you are going through all too well!  40 started out great; I was cruisin‘!  Then all of a sudden, my close up eyesight went completely downhill.  I’m now wearing reading glasses.  

      Then the night sweats began and, of course, I’m the only one in the room who is always hot—it’s always me!  

      The one thing that I can say about being 40 that is great is the amount of clarity you have.  You realize what you want to do and how you‘re going to get there.  You also realize just how much crap you’ll put up with—which is minimal at this point in your life.  I think this is a great point in my life and I have enjoyed being 40.  

      Just sit back and enjoy it while you can.  Have a glass of Charonnay and read a great book!

      Faith

    • I actually had cancer in my 20’s which after the 9 surgeries for 1 hysterectomy, I have now been in menopause for 12 years! Luckily, no one has gotten hurt yet, lol.
      I take natural HRP but sometimes a tranquilizer is in need.

    • Hi Shelly,

      I know part of menopause is physical, and then some is emotional. The trick is figuring which is the Biggest contributor to our upheavel. Before you slap your dh silly, check
      out your options for balancing the fluctuations. For some of us diet changes and get-
      ting enough sleep works wonders, but not every one.  

      I have to tell ya, I got a good laugh reading your blog because oh how I remember the
      days!

      Cathie

    • It’ll pass but it is perfectly normal, I started menopause pretty early, the mood swings have finally stabilized some, I still get night sweats, just not as bad...I tried the patch, but decided it wasn’t for me, currently I am not taking anything, I just try to take it in stride, my kids just ignore me as it is safest for them to do so.estatic

    • Sorry to hear what you are going through. Your body had gone through a lot of health challenges in the past. That certainly does not help at this stage.

      However, there is always something we could do to improve our health.

      Google and do research on menopause/hormone imbalance for a start.

      In order to live a life of total health, we need to have balance in mind, body and spirit. There are various ways to achieve it.  

      Basically we need a healthy balanced diet, regular exercise (especially of mind and body balance kind), happy hour, alone time, sufficient rest, a soulful community/group to belong to,etc.

      I recommend looking into natural herbs and supplements for balancing hormones.

      I don’t want to say something just because I am involve with it like yoga or supplements. Though it is always something I highly recommend.  You need to research and try things out yourself. However if you are interested about yoga or supplements and if you have any questions, I would be most happy to help.

      I hope you will get better soon.
