I have bad brain fuzz. I used to be so sharp, and quick, I had a memory like a steel trap. Names, dates, faces, times - I remembered everything, Mr Deekie Belle used to be completely baffled by it... He was always like - "how in the heck can you remember that??!" But in the last few months I have felt a few things slip and have become a little,.. lets say, blurry...
Anyway, I got quite worried that it was something serious... but discovered that I'm just going through 'peri-menopause'. For those of you who don't know what that is, it is the stage of your life where you are past 'childbirth' but pre -menopausal.
Some of the symptoms of peri-menopause are:
Hot flushes and/or cold flushes (check),
Brain fog (check)
Weight gain (check),
Feelings of Anxiety (check),
Increased tension in muscles (check),
Breast tenderness (check),
Tingling in the extremities (check),
Increase in allergies (check),
Trouble sleeping through the night (check)
and the list goes on.
I have discovered that this can last up to 8 to 10 years and then, you get actual menopause. Some of the symptoms of this are:
Hot Flushes and/or cold flushes
Trouble sleeping through the night
Increase in allergies
and the list goes on... and on....
hmmmm, I just love being a woman! :)
Anyway, at least I had a good brain for a while...
Hope you enjoyed this, I thought it was great!!
Hugs to you all!
Ps - I am wanting a new design for my blog ....if anyone know of someone who could help me out please give me a shout xo!
