Now, on to another topic...OH DAMN NOT AGAIN.... Post menopausal yes, ladies, do the symptoms of a monthly cycle really ever go away, for a few lucky ones yes, to them I say, bugger off...for most no. Here I am in my week were I would normally have my cycle before the stopping point, and I am still doing the same things. Oh YES, I have added a few...hot flashes which I found if you stop the caffeine really tapper off along with keeping your feet cool when they hit. But, here is my peeve...I use to get migraines with my cycle and sleep two days. Now I sleep two days but without the cycle and the migraines. To this I say "What the What" it's like going into a cocoon for two days and darkness is my friend. It's 5 to 7 days of this crap! Plus to top it off..if you piss me off that week I will verbally tear you a new A**hole and I know I am doing it, but can't get control until it decides to stop. It's like an outer body experience...Hello, we can create all this technology and can't stop this!! Oh sure they gave me Prempro warning me of all the side effects especially blood clots. Well, 6 months later I was in the hospital, two blood clots in the main arteries from my lungs to my heart. Now I am stuck on blood thinners...HELLO!
And if one more person knits a hat, scarf, or cowl or shawl...I am going to scream!! Literally. Now for all those knitters and crocheters don't get your yarn in a twist over my comment. I completely understand it's relaxing and easy...yet every time I look for something different to knit all I find are hats, scarfs, shawls and cowls. How many different ways can they be knitted or crocheted. Now I am not the most talented at making patterns, what the heck it's not my forte. But please make something different like this....
Look at the detail it's truly amazing, challenging, makes me want to pick up my needles and give it a go. Oregon Hand Warmers, an Alice Starmore design. The gloves alone would have people asking where did you get those? It's almost like cooking...if you're a common person the same food gets boring as you age.
So now you have an idea of the post menopausal women who isn't lucky enough to have it all stop when it really stopped. FYI...I am 8 years post and it still keeps going.....and going...and going... when it's 30 degrees outside I am sleeping with no heat on and a turbo fan whirling away....someone please stop all the madness!
Popping in to update...you must see this pattern called Secret Garden. I have to give it a go!
