I know I missed last week, and I can not blame it on my menopausal brain and forgetting what I walked into a room for. I do have a reason, So here is my update since my last post.

Why Have I Been Missing
I have been in full on Mum mode. Ladies you know what I am talking about, when our child is ill. My Daughter has been ill with abdominal pains since November, and we ended up in A&E. What a nightmare that turned out to be with a 7 hour wait. Then to be sent home to take paracetamol and then a 5 hour wait as they were dealing with sick children. The same children that were running around playing, being seen and sent home. I did write a post about it the other day going into more detail, but she ended up on a drip and being admitted to hospital.
This explains why I have been quite than usual, as been sitting in a hospital and getting hardly any sleep. We are home now and have a Consultants appointment next week, as we thought it was one thing and now could be various things. Confused, so are we.
Lets Talk Menopause
Whether this is something in the future for you, something you are experiencing now. Or if you are a man supporting your partner. It is something that happens to us all, we can not dismiss it happening. For me the funnier moments of forgetting what I am saying mid sentence, or what I walked into a room for, or the hot flushes. There are some other sides that some women suffer. Yes you have guessed it I am one of those women I have a condition called endometrial hyperplasia without atypia. It is not as scary as it sounds, in fact the worst part is having biopsies taken which is uncomfortable. I have a follow-up appointment next week and it is something I will write about at some stage.
Some fun Time
Last weekend, we had a night planned with friends, and there was a time we thought we would have to cancel. Luckily she was out of hospital in time. This meant I could go and have some much-needed pampering at the hairdressers. Where I had my hair cut and coloured for the first time since June last year, yes I told you your memory goes with the menopause. On Saturday, we had a night with friends having a meal and a few drinks and it was just the tonic we both needed to unwind. I am so grateful to my parents.
That is all from me this week – how are you coping with the Menopause?
