Hello, I am new to this

carla17April 27, 2006

Someone from rose forum linked me to here. I have been yearning for someone to talk to about this stage. I heard a woman/doctor on Oprah say once that we should embrace the change. Not me, it's screwed up my life. While I feel fortunate not to have the night sweats, knock on wood, I am not sleeping like I used to. Hot flashes are unpleasant.

My main question here is are any of you staying up really late because you can't get to sleep?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Well, mine comes and goes... I ALWAYS had problems with sleeping with PMS, so it's not new to me. I don't embrace the change, but I embrace aspects of it... like I have become a darn hermit... don't like people too much anymore.... and I love it! :D It's probably unhealthy for me, specially since I have become so intolerant, but for some reason, I could care less. And I have met other perimenopausal women who feel the same way.
I don't enjoy the actual process of menopausing, but I wouldn't go back... every year, my life gets better...
