Sometimes being a woman is the hardest challenge I deal with. The emotional/hormonal roller coaster we ride. It feels as though there are more downs then ups and when those loops show up out of know where we really feel out of control. Add kids and a husband to the ride and the speed intensifies.
I'm only in my mid 30's but I have been dealing with the premenopausal stuff for probably about 6/7 yrs now... The hot flashes and mood swings seem to be getting worse as time goes by. But I keep moving forward looking for those little remedies that might give me some relief.
I wonder what it will be like when I don't have to deal with all of the pre-menopause and post any more. Our families put up with a whole lot when we are like this...
I hope they still like me in the end when it's all over. :)
