“The hot flushes. I made a joke of having my own tropical moments, but the other symptoms really got me down. The most worrying was the memory loss. I really thought something was seriously wrong with me. The joint pains were crippling and the weight gain was horrendous. I felt so bad that I took early retirement from work. Six years later, I have the occasional warm moment, the joint pains are not as severe and my brain has stopped the auto delete function, but the filing system still leaves a lot to be desired. I really hope I’m through the worst of it now. My weight has started to normalize. It has been a thoroughly miserable six years.”
“The night swims. LOL. The sweats are so bad it’s like I’ve been swimming, and my clothes are all wet!!!”
“HOT FLASHES & MOOD SWINGS! I swear I don’t know if I’m coming or going or if I’m hot or cold. This really sucks. My family thinks I’m crazy and, at times, I think I am going crazy.”
