Menopause Causes Sleep Deprivation

Menopause Causes Sleep Deprivation

Entry: Saturday May 1st | Menopause Brain Diary

It’s 5 a.m. I can’t sleep. This is the third day this week. Insomnia is the worst it’s been in a long time. I’m experiencing racing thoughts, an overactive bladder (like every 5 minutes overactive) and a lot of twitching (or spasms). I’ve also had chills the last two days. I usually find myself going between hot flashes and chills.

I’m feeling frustrated and hopeless.

When I don’t sleep I feel physically terrible. I’ll feel hungover all day, today. I hate that feeling. I hate that no sleep, now, means I’ll be useless all day. It cuts into my goals and plans for that day.

Yesterday, I felt mentally ‘checked out.’ I didn’t want to talk and I didn’t want to listen, either.

There’s no denying menopause has been a little hard on me this week. I think I’m not getting enough exercise. When I exercise regularly, I feel better. I sleep better. At this phase in life, sleep is so important to overall good health.

I’ve been binge watching shows. Reading and writing. I know what the sleep experts say. They say shut your phone off. But whoever said that has never experienced hormonal shifts or menopause. No doubt, the expert is a man.

When I have these menopause episodes I liken them to fevers . Eventually they’ll break and I feel good, again. But until then, I feel terrible.

I’m so tired I want to yell, scream, curse and punch the air. Instead, I’ll just wait it out. Plan to stay home all day. And get outside and do some exercise.

I hope tomorrow is better than today.

Kevin Bacons (almost) Vegetarian Bolognese

Kevin Bacons (almost) Vegetarian Bolognese

If there’s one thing women appreciate as we grow older, it’s a man who has good skills in the kitchen. When I saw this post by actor, Kevin Bacon, dishing out his recipe for Bolognese I had to share it with you. He’s making dinner for his wife whose been working out of town.

Let me know if you try it!

Can you believe that’s the same guy who starred in Footloose? Time flies.


Could There Be A King Of Queens Reboot?

Could There Be A King Of Queens Reboot?

I sure hope so! Leah Remini made a “Walk down memory lane with my favorite TV hubby” Instagram post.

The post was supposed to be a birth day wish from one friend to another. But then, Kevin James commented with “Can’t tell you how much I love you and I gotta feeling we’ll be seeing each other soon!!”

Several people including myself were chanting “reboot.”

Are you a King of Queens fan? Do you think the show would work, today? Tell me why or why not in the comments. In the meantime, I’ve got my eye on these two!
