Been going through body changes for sometime now. I read pre menopause symptoms can last a while. I think I am coping ok although Night sweats keep me up at night, vivid dreams and hot flashes and is usually my head reliving whatever happened through the day just to mention a few. I started journaling again to help me make some sense of feelings and thoughts in my head. I am just happy to find you and know that I am not alone … cant wait to read, share and learn from all of you

I have found recently since giving birth that I have more anxiety at night of things to do. Maybe it’s because it’s the first time I have all day to myself but the list keeps me up!

I sleep pretty well, but hot flashes from menopause do keep me up sometimes. I usually sleep with a portable fan pointed at me on my nightstand.

When I begin to feel the night sweats coming on, I flip my pillow over to the cooler side and it feels refreshing and balances my body temp.
