I turned 48 about a month ago and Sylvia is 49. Overall we are in good health, although we both could lose a few pounds….well maybe more than a few. The one thing that is driving me crazy is my PERIOD…..I am sure I am seeing the first signs of menopause, but man it sucks. Last month, Sylvia and I started our periods on the same day. Mine last 3 days and hers lasted ten. Sometimes I have a lot of symptoms prior to my period and sometimes I am fine. Oh and last month my period was a WEEK early. Yea, I know as I get older my period won’t be regular, but man it sucks when it comes a whole week early. I had been very tired for the week prior to it arriving and my stomach had been upset. I actually told Sylvia that if felt like my usual period symptoms, but this would make it a week early. Well, that question got answered when my period came a week early.
I am exhausted today and have an upset stomach. Well, now I am wondering if this is due to my period coming, which again would be a week early. Now if it only lasts three days, then it isn’t too bad, but I hate these symptoms. I know I am not in the best of shape, but I am walking 10,000 steps a day or more and doing pretty good, and then on a day like today, I just want to crawl into bed and sleep. I am hungry, but don’t feel like eating….BLAH. Sylvia also has times where she is very tired before he period comes. I guess it is just part of being a woman, but man I am ready for this to be DONE…..but that may be a few years. I just wanted to vent a little and see if anyone had any advice…so??
