Now I Know How Those Gremlins Felt!

Remember that 80s movie "Gremlins" and how the guy demolished one by putting it in the microwave?  That's the feeling I've been having several times a night lately!  Like I'm being cooked from the inside out.  This 'perimenopause' is for the birds!  Here's how my nights have been going:  bed about 10pm, watch a couple of episodes of "Golden Girls"--love that Sophia!--finally fall asleep around 11.  Wake up about an hour later feeling like a lit match head.  Throw all the covers off and eventually go back to sleep.  Anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes later, wake up freezing and pull covers back up.  Repeat every hour or so till time to get up.  AARRGGHH!!  Not fun!

And from what I understand, it's not gonna end anytime soon.  So we won't even talk about the depression, mood swings, and weight gain! I think Archie Bunker has the right idea!



It's a little long, but make sure you watch the last couple of minutes if nothing else!
Is it getting hot in here or is it just me?

I hear ya sister, those night sweats are horrible. Let's see, I have been having those for about 5-6 years now. The good news is "Aunt Flo" doesn't visit much anymore, just 3 times in the last 4 years, so there is an upside to all of this madness.
Good luck.

Love the Archie Bunker clip.

All I can say is thank God for hormone pills. I had my hysterectomy about 10 years ago and every time I try to quit taking my pills (its bad for you or no its ok) the hot flashes start so I go right back on them. I feel for you. I hope it gets better.
