I was thinking I was just 40,
Why should I be getting lashes from hot flashes???
Feeling the sting of mood swings,
Counting sheep, because I cannot sleep,
Where are the synergies to bring my energy?
Let’s keep it simple this is all about my cycle.
Irritability, mood swings and mild depression,
Why you causing all this commotion?
Why you are interfering with my hormonal level?
I feel the heat, this is not neat, lashes from my hot flashes.
A red flush face, how to embrace this case?
Hormone fluctuations that is my current situation,
Is this the metamorphosis or is this just a crisis?
My body is changing and rearranging,
I need my mental health that is my wealth,
There is only dryness no sweetness,
What’s the cause for this seismic shift?
OB-GYN please be my saviour,
I was told I can find you at the lunch time hour,
At ‘Ask the Doctor’ please share your super power,
Please share the answers to the cause of this great pause,
Why my estrogen level drop and everything flop?
With constant lashes from my hot flashes.
So, because estrogen levels decrease you making me over heat,
That’s why I be getting lashes from my hot flashes?
This why my brain going insane?
High amounts of other kinds of hormones,
Affect the thermostat in meh brain,
So, I’m not going to debate that’s why, my body temperature fluctuates,
Doc, you do educate and translate so, we can relate.
How can I move from this junction of dysfunction?
A healthy lifestyle saves the day,
Move out the way drugs, gels and less carbs are my way,
I need to keep my symptoms at bay.
Menopause you’re an exhausting ride!
