    SO glad I just found your blog! I literally just blogged about this topic and why hardly anyone is talking about it. Us GALs (love that by the way) have to stick together!

  2. […] are all my ladies 40 and up. Can we talk about this menopause and perimenopause crap? Because it feels like no one is talking about it, but I think it’s […]

    Dear Amy,
    Thank you so much for writing this blog!
    I was just as flummoxed as you in regards to not understanding what was going on with my mind and body. Super confusing times. Nice to know I’m not the only one feeling like they are being invaded by aliens taking over control of my body! LOL.

    I am so relieved to have finally found some “support” emotional more than ever! I am a 41 year old(Born Nov 1978) and just this month had heightened symptoms of night sweats, breast tenderness for over 15 days prior to my period, this “waking-up” ever so suddenly in the midd le of the night and in the inability to fall back to sleep! I almost cried this morning as i wasnt sure wasnt happening. My husband is my biggest supporter and did all he could to pacify me. I started taking a sleep supplement called “relax plus” which is jsut an all natural melatonin and herbal concoction in a capsule. However, even popping that in the night hasnt helped me! Does anyone have any advice for me before i jaunt on to see a doctor who may not even get me ? I’m really hurting for sleep!

    Hi Sally, thank you so much for sharing your experience. I’m right there with you! I take two Melatonin tablets and an over-the-counter sleep aid.
