    Wow, do all women have to go through that eventually? I mean, the severity of it. Because I always thought PMS is bad…women just have it bad…and now I guess I have THAT to look forward to.Scary!

    About the dry eyes, I use a humidifier in the room and also Bausch and Lomb eye drops which are great. And sometimes if it’s really bad I put a warm wet washcloth over my eyelids for a while. Hope that helps 🙂 I’d definitely suggest a humidifier though.

      What a good idea about the humidifier. Never thought of that. Thanks! I’ll google the eye drops too.

      No, not all women have a nightmare of a time gong through these changes. I have one friend who breezed through it. Over and done with in the blink of an eye with only a few hot flushes to speak of. On the other hand I have another friend who could barely function….
      I’ve never really had bad PMS, so this is all a it of a surprise to me.

  2. I’ve been on the receiving end of this anxiety, if you follow me so I have some sympathy for your husband and also for you. Once you find the right supplements I think things do settle down. I hope so. This reply was written from a bunker at the bottom of the garden

      lol! I think I understand the difficulty of being on the receiving end. Us women are a complex bunch to fathom at the best of times. Throw in some whacky hormones and I can see why a fallout shelter is required.
      Well hey…life is never dull with us, at least?

  3. Why is that when you write a post like this I cannot help but laugh. Mybad I know, but you have a brilliant knack of writing as you are speaking. I feel for you and all the crap you are going through. I honestly do. I had the flushes a few mood swings and though having to contend with those for 5 or so years it was over never to return. I hope the real you emerges from the cupboard soon, but in the meantime I do enjoy reading…even if you are going to ‘hell in basket’ at the moment 😦 xx

      I am glad for you it’s all done and dusted. (Oh that must be so nice!)
      The joys of hot flushes are as yet still a mystery to me.(Can’t wait!) Maybe I won’t get the traditional ones though? That’d be me. I get like burning sensations that last for HOURS in different parts of my face though. At one point these burning sensations would actually move around on my face….the WEIRDEST feeling. Migrating hot flashes? Sometimes it’s a burning feeling that feels like an ice cold burn. Whatever it is it’s insanely annoying!
      I feel better right now. The mood swings are so erratic. I feel like I have multiple personality disorder.
      I shouldn’t complain though.
      But then again…why the hell not!

    We are all in this together as women and whining is ok sometimes. It will get better again, hold on to that thought!
    Good you have patient people around you. That will help you too. For eyes I am sure there are drops or creams to put in, my dad had one once, which I put in for him!
    Hope you are better and feeling yourself agian soon!
