I have good news on the menopause front, it seems that what I am doing is making a dent in the horrendousness of it all.
First, let’s take a moment to glorify in the joke that is womanhood. First off, we get our periods, and it is awful, no amount of glorifying this horrendous event is going to make it better. It’s awful, some have great pain every month, get migraines, severe pain, and the never ending cost of it all. In emotions and money.
Next we have childbirth, well, that’s not fun, we gain a ton of weight, a baby sits on our bladder, our ankles swell, we retain water. Once again migraines, pain, but this one is worth it, I will tell you I’d do it all over again. But still, it is not pretty or for the faint of heart.
Then we have a point where society sees our usefulness at an end, we are no longer fertile goddesses. We are crones, ugly, useless crones, that have to go through a completely different horribleness.
Night sweats, day sweats, hot flashes, headaches, weight gain, bloating and moodiness.
Men do not have to go through any of that, they just simply said through life. Never having a thought of what women go through. Before you think I am man bashing, I am not, I think very highly of men. A lot of them, some of them, ok a few of them.
But let’s face it, they do not have to go through anything like we do, it is our curse for Eve. After all of these years don’t you think we have paid the price for her perfidy?
Someone needs to take this up with God, not me, that is for someone way braver than I. If I did it I may end up with something even more horrendous for us. So I shall not take up that mantle with our Heavenly Father.
ok, so the concoction I have put together does seem to be working. I take so many pills that I should rattle when I walk, I may, I listen to a lot of podcasts when I go for walks. So who knows.
I’ll tell you what I take and then I will link where you can buy them at the end. I take the LLV from Doterra, that is three different products: Micro Plex VMz, Alpha CRS+, xEOMega, I have been taking these for a week. I will tell you after day two my energy levels went up by 75%. It has been a great week so far.
I am also taking the EstroPause and Proestro also with Progesta care-plus cream, that you do not ingest. I shouldn’t have to say that, but you never know who is reading this.
At bedtime I take Gaia Nighttime Comfort, all of these things together seem to be working.
Today is the first day in a long time I have had no hot flashes all day long. Now last night I woke up several times having a hot flash. So tonight will be the big test, if I sleep all night without any hot flashes, or at least fewer of them. I’ll keep you updated on that.
I have a new show I am watching, Poldark, on Amazon Prime, thanks to Gin. She suggested it a few weeks back, I started it yesterday.
It is greatness, it is set after the Revolutionary War, in England, it is a former British soldier that comes home. Following his journey is fascinating, it doesn’t hurt that he is ridiculously good looking. He is not pretty, he is handsome, very rugged, very manly. There is a scene where he is shirtless, working in a field, I literally felt my heart stop.
I highly recommend the show, not just for the eye candy, the language is delicious sounding. The costuming is spot on for the time period as are the abodes.
I hope you all have a great day and have stay cool, literally, it is unbearably hot here in North Texas.
Gaia Nighttime Comfort:
None of these things are super expensive, well worth it all so far. Let me know if you decide to try any of them!
