How many of you remember the classic book by Judy Blume, Are you there God? Its me, Margaret. The story of a prepubescent girl, Margaret and the trials and tribulations of growing up. Boys, bras and periods. I think there should a book called – Are you there God? Its me Menopause. Mood swings, peezing and hot flashes.
In the original book, Margaret would secretly talk to God about her feelings of growing up, her emotions and religion. But if this was a book written for the perimenopause/menopause women, I think it would be more like – Are you there God, its me Menopause and why they hell am I feeling this way. And is it normal.
Being at home a little more than usual is making us all a little stir crazy. But, if you are experiencing symptoms of perimenopause, you might feel not just sitr crazy but actually… CRAZY.
I know, I know – google menopause, or perimenpause and you get endless results, but we are OLD SCHOOL around here and love the feel of a fresh new book, or a new addition to our Kindle. We also read magazines, and essays. Yes kids, MAGAZINES!

2:21 am, I am stirred awake with a feeling of extreme warmth. What the hell??!! I can’t get comfortable, I throw off the covers and lay there trying to get some feeling of cool. Can’t Sleep..Oh Hello Menopause.
For me this warmth almosts give me a sense of nausea. Just breath, I say. For some women it is so intense that they are waking up feeling like they are in a puddle of water and soaking wet pyjamas. For all these symptoms of perimenopause and menopause are all different but in some ways the same.
