It’s Not My Fault!

Medical Issues Parenting Help    It’s not my fault that every sales clerk in every retail store has suddenly become an incompetent fool that spends more time chatting with other customers than doing their rightful job of serving my every need.

It’s not my fault that the keys, my purse, the dog and those groceries I just bought have somehow been misplaced.  They haven’t ceased to exist, I just can’t remember where they are currently existing.

It’s not my fault that the love of my life has suddenly become as inviting as that Dex character from one of those Star Wars movies.

And it’s certainly not my fault that global warming seems to happen at random times and in random places throughout the day.

Of course, I know it’s not your fault either, but with these mood swings …. I’m blaming you and the rest of God’s creation anyway!

The truth is… women in menopause  are at the mercy of their hormones.

Not every women entering menopause experiences the symptoms of menopause, but over 70% of women over 40 years old will experience some of the following symptoms.

  • Mood Swings
  • Hot Flashes
  • Loss of  libido
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Irritability
  • Muscle tension
  • Sleep disorders
  • Itchy skin
  • Memory lapses
  • Headaches
  • Gum problems
  • Depression
  • Digestive problems
  • Tingling shocks
  • Mouth soreness
  • Breast soreness
  • And a host of additional annoying little changes that interrupt and affect the quality of Grandma’s life.

There several treatments that can lesson the symptoms including:

  • Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Natural HRT
  • Herbal Remedies
  • Ammonium Succinate

But in the meantime, just remember ….

It’s not my fault…. it’s the hormones!
