|Me at 1 month old|
|troll doll cutie|
Signs and symptoms of perimenopause that I seem to be stuck with due to the shifting hormones are fatigue, irregular periods, mood swings (I go from happy, to sad, to angry in 3 seconds) lots of trouble sleeping, and forgetfulness. Did you know that a study was done that showed that 60% of women in my situation had short term memory loss, did not learn new things well, and had a hard time trying to concentrate (no wonder this is taking forever to write)? Also 40% suffered from those awful mood swings.
Sometimes I feel like I am
losing my mind. I speak before I think
now, and the things I say are in no way what I am feeling. I have lost ability to censor myself at
times. No wonder old folks speak so

So to any family or friends that read this, please forgive me and have patience if I say something hurtful or stupid. I am sure I didn’t mean it. It’s the hormones talking. They say this doesn’t last forever, I am sure hoping that is true, because I miss being me.
