Menopause Madness

Sunset on holiday

It’s been a harrowing few weeks, but at least after Tuesday the hell of overnight menopause will finally be over and I’ll be allowed my HRT back. Having to omit that particular medication for a couple of weeks so I can have tests done has been crazy! Take the exhaustion and add it to blinding headaches and a non-existent memory and you have, in short, chaos. Having just completely re-vamped our bedroom I began putting clothes back in the wardrobe. The shelves needed dusting first though. On my first trip downstairs to get a cloth for the job I came back with a glass of water. On the second I was distracted by birds in my garden and arrived back in my bedroom with nothing, but finally, on the third try I managed to find a cloth and make it back up the stairs. Now what was I going to do?

Then there is the lack of focus, literally. Photos that seem OK on camera are blurred, requiring a second or third try at each shot. So, frustration at much effort with little reward is the outcome of all this. It’s comical, I suppose, when looking from the outside in. But a little less so when it’s happening to you. Normal service will, I hope, be resumed once the tests are over. Until then….now what is my name and what on earth am I writing about?

    You can take some comfort in the fact it’s only your pics that are blurred. I’m trying to write a story and sitting here is sometimes feel like my life’s blurred!
    Normal service – so that’ll be the gritty sense of humour then? The one that you’ve just used to post the blog??
    All the best xx

      A blurred life, eh? Is that you moving so fast you’ve become a blur by any chance? Grit is something I’m doing to my teeth at the moment, lol. But, yep, I hope my full blown sense of humour will be back once the hormones come flooding in…..
