My series of diary of a menopausal mum, which stopped over lockdown as it would have been the same thing and rants every week. Is now back in case you missed it you can find last weeks post here.
I may talk about the downside to the menopause, but this is more of a light hearted series looking at the funny side of the menopause and being a Mum.
I mentioned last week about my broken tooth and the awful antibiotics I was put on. I came off of them and spoke to my dentist regarding this. Unfortunately there was nothing else they could give me, so I have an appointment this morning. Not sure what they can do as not sure they will be able to get close to my tooth without me hitting the ceiling.
Just hoping they can do something as I am in agony and completely fed up and very self conscious of it.
This is something I am very vocal about, I am forever going round saying I am so hot, is it hot in here. So a conversation with my husband on Wednesday was very much like this.
I asked if the heating was on as I was burning up, he said no, and maybe it was my tooth infection. I suffered a few hours and then noticed the heating was on. He just said it shouldn’t be. I was not impressed
At the weekend we popped to The Range, I love this shop and if left alone could spend a fortune. It was my husbands idea, so I quickly agreed to going.
I hate wearing masks, being a glasses wearer having the mask high, and my glasses over the mask means my glasses do not steam up. I glare at anyone not wearing a mask just because I am jealous I am having to wear one. It has made my shopping experiences worse. I get so hot and sweaty and can not wait to get outside and take my mask off. I feel so claustrophobic wearing one.
However, you do not need to wear one when shopping online, which I am still choosing to do for my food, top up shops and bits and pieces. As we have our new bathroom my current thing is new towels for the bathroom.
You will be aware my daughter has a chronic illness, it is ME Awareness month and on Wednesday was ME Awareness day, you can see my post here. She is also under Neurology as has ongoing migraines and IIH.
Yesterday, whilst asking what she wanted for lunch she calmly lists off about side effects from her new medication. Which on checking are listed as severe. So ended up on the phone to Neurology trying to speak to our Consultant, emailing Neurology and ringing our GP. Nothing is ever simple.
The mood swings are very clear this week, I am either down and grumpy and close to tears, or happy and laughing. It is very much ask me something and wait for my reaction. Still suffering the brain fog and managing to trip over my own feet.
How has your week been?
