Menopausal Monday

Menopausal Monday! What is that?

I am aware that I am entering the menopause. I think the signs were there a couple of years ago when I first started to feel hot for no apparent reason and without warning. Now hot flushes come and go and the odd night sweat sets in. Periods are erratic where they have always being regular. SOMETHING is going on here.

Hitting the menopause brings its physical symptoms but it also is making me reflect on my life and times. It’s a turning point. My children are now tweens and a teen. They need me a bit less or perhaps just in a very different way. This allows me more freedom to read, to do my own thing and just to be.

So in my mid-forties (spun for good measure) I find myself fascinated and also strangely liberated by the changes in my body and in my life.

I also start to wonder if I have on big adventure in me and just how brave I am really.

Is anyone else having a Menopausal Monday?

Received wisdom is that the menopause is yet another of those things we don’t acknowledge or talk about enough. Perhaps we need to change that. Perhaps I could start a regular blog hop sharing the life and times of menopausal women to share peer support, tips and achievements.

How does that sound?

    It is definitely a subject that needs to be discussed more, which is why I’ve written about it a couple of times. However while I know many people who sailed through the menopause (including my own mother), I have found, and continue to find, it very difficult. Hope all goes well for you x
