Most of my menopausal issues up and walked away in December and January. I felt pretty good, so good that I mentioned to SM last week that I wondered if I was on "the other side."
"I know it's only been 2 months but do you think it could really be that easy?" I asked him.
No hot flashes, no cold flashes.
No mood swings.
No period in over 6 months.
"I mean, I know some women suffer for years with this crap but then you run into a few who say it was no big deal and they got through it in a year or so. Wouldn't it be lovely if it's over?" I asked SM.
"Don't count on it." SM told me.
"What? You think just because I've put it out there..." (My fingers making the quotation marks)..."that now it'll come roaring back?"
"You know how it works Tami. You put it "out there" and it'll come back to bite you in the ass." SM warns.
"I remain hopefully optimistic." I reply, my head held high, nose in the air.
Ha! Take that Universe! I thumb my nose at you!!!!
Friday, I started my period.
Saturday, I woke up with a killer migraine and cold flashes so bad that even though I took two (count em TWO) blistering hot showers, I still couldn't get warm and slept last night in full winter gear with my winter hat on my head.
This morning? Migraine gone so far (Thank God!) although my winter gear is still on.
Oh well...Deep down, I knew it was too good to be true.
