It has been almost 30 days since I started my journey to lessen the ravages of menopause. It has been harrowing at times, at times I just wanted to throw in the towel and find a cave. A very cold, dark cave, not because my soul is dark, but because of the hot flashes.
Instead I stayed the course, I rattle when I walk from all of the supplements I am taking, but it’s working.
I have to tell you that I did some research into menopause and the awfulness of it all. There are so many things that happen to women! Did you know joint pain is common during menopause? I did not, and I have been having massive pain in my thumb joint on my left hand. So random and it has been hurting since January. I know, your next question is well why didn’t you go to the doctor.
I was busy, is one answer, and I was, January was a busy month, then it was my birthday month, then it was vacation time. Who has time for a doctors visit when your getting ready to for alien hunting in New Mexico? Or visiting family in Arizona? Hiking with a husky? Who has the time???
Just when I think ok, now I have time, the world imploded. Doctors were not taking appointments if you didn’t have Covid. I don’t have Covid, so there you have it, I am happy to report I do have good news on the pain front.
First off I take so many supplements it literally takes me three hours every morning to get them down. I am not exaggerating, as most of you know, I have esophagus issues, taking pills is not an easy task.
So I have to take a couple wait, take a couple more, wait and so on and so on.
Here are my results so far:
My joint pain in my thumb is almost all gone, I am down to one hot flash a night, none during the day. I have way more energy and my memory is coming back.
Did you know memory loss is a symptom of menopause? So much fun!
Some women experience hair loss, mine is so thick it isn’t even funny. I do use collagen in my coffee every morning, I also use Doterra shampoo and conditioner and Fitish hair serum. I have so much new growth my hair line looks like a toddlers.
The weight, that is the biggest joke menopause plays on the majority of us. With all of the supplements and getting my body back internally, the weight is coming off. My cloths are fitting differently and I can see it in the mirror.
I am on the right track and it feels good, I also am sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night. Except for last night, but I think that was more thinking about my mom and not being able to sleep due to missing her so much.
So it was a one off, we need the sleep, our bodies use that time to heal and rejuvenate.
I will post pictures of all of the supplements I am taking on this post. I am not a doctor, I am not telling you to do this regimen, I am just giving you information on what is working for me.
Thank God I had no bone issues, because you lose bone density during menopause. I had a test, I’m good in that area, no brittle bones here.
I have said it before, I’ll say it again, it is not fair that we, women, have to go through this nonsense.
Throughout the beginning of time I do believe we have paid the price for Eve’s perfidy. it’s time to let up some now, maybe just get rid of this one thing. Or give men something, something equally as horrible, that would be awesome! If you could arrange that God I’d be really grateful.
ok, that is all I have for now, I hope you all have a great weekend and oh yes, it’s Dean Cain’s birthday today. And yes, he liked my tweet on Twitter. So yay me!
Have a great day and stay safe!
