I swear that I am actually going to have a heat stroke from these hot flashes! I am burning from the top of my head to the tips of my toes. I know what to expect and what is happening but I am not liking it at all. I am not finding anything good about starting menopause. So far, the hot flashes or as I prefer to call them "Power Surges", are the main symptom that I am experiencing. Well and maybe the mood swings. I am about ready to just raise my fist and yell Bring it On!! I have survived worse than this ( I think) and you can't bring me down!! I will survive ... maybe not without some major refrigeration. I think I will invest in a walk-in! Or a commercial sized air conditioner. Follow me on Slim's Opinion as I journey through this maze of mayhem!
