I've hit that 'funny age' when my hair falls out - I've had to cut a fringe to cover my receding hairline - and becomes even finer, my skin thinks I'm a teenager and ...
My skin has come out in such lumps and bumps. I'm unfortunate (to say the least) in that I have to shave every day - nothing wrong with my hormones, just one of those things, so the doctors say. So my shaver either can't cut the hairs because there's a layer of skin over them or rips holes in my skin. Where I usually am in a panic over whether people can tell I have bad facial hair (I'm bottling over the fact that I'm 'coming out' here - never thought I would) now I also panic over the gouges.
Then there's the night flushes. I've moved the hairdryer so that I can dry my hair in the night without bothering poliphilo.</span>
I think I'm also suffering from an allergy to milk. For the last 2 years I've been drinking soya milk ( I got Tuberculosis iin the 1950's from milk) and, because I was missing my cups of tea, I went back onto skimmed (no fat) milk. I think it was a mistake. I'm now back on soya milk & no tea.
God, I sound miserable, but I don't feel it. I spent a lot of my early adulthood wondering whether I'm fully feminine. Thanks to poliphilo I've relaxed enough to know that I am. The menopause confirms it. In a way it's fun - you can blame anything you want on it! I'm so so glad I'm a woman
Poor men, no 'monthly' excuse, no menopause. We know - you're crazy all the time!!
