What is up with THIS?! I must be in the thick of it. (Close the thread NOW if this is too much information). When I nursed my kids, I had hot flashes whenever I was overdue for a feeding. Weird, huh? And my medications would often make me break out in a sweat. So you'd think I'd be used to stuff like this. Well let me tell you, those little heat waves were NOTHING compared to what I've started getting hit with over the past six months or so. It's very sporadic so far, but DANG! And can we talk cramps here? When I was younger, I had them but they were tolerable. And after I had my kids, I was never really bothered by them. But this past year? And the past six months? OUCH! Last month, I had one day that hit me HARD. I was trying to trim a hedge in my back yard and I could barely stand up it was that bad. I tried to tough it out and kept lopping away at the bush, but I COULDN'T! I'm not used to being waylaid by my body. Tonight is another one of those nights. I though when things started a few days ago it was going to be an easy breezy week. But suddenly this evening I'm feeling down for the count. Even husband notices that I am parTICularly snippy lately. Of course, anyone who's followed the drama in my life of late would understand that I have plenty of cause to be snippy, but I guess this is an extra helping I've laid on him lately. I really don't know what to say to him. Sorry? Please tell me this is a normal start to the end of the monthly business! I don't want something new to worry about.
