Being able to juggle 10 things in my mind at once has been my strong-point through my entire life. I now seem to be able to juggle only 5 things at a time and hope I don’t forget anything along the way. How could a simple word like “hormone” cause such havoc on a persons’ being.
I am convinced that no one can empathize with you unless they too have started this stage in their life. When asking a professional how long these “symptoms” can last…I was given a very vague answer. There seems to be no time frame to this part of a woman’s life. These symptoms can last months to years; not exactly what I wanted to hear.
The 50’s have brought many positive things into my life; among them are wisdom and experience and now “hot flashes” or the “vapors” as referred to in the past, will be added to the list. I suppose I will have to endure as there is no other choice; I hope other family members will “endure” along with me as they don’t have much choice either.
And so, I will start another chapter of my life that I am sure will pass quickly also; one can only hope. I will look forward to the chapters about to start in the future, and save money on winter clothing this coming season as I will certainly not need as many of them.
