My mood swings are controlled thanks to the meds I am taking and those are supposed to be assisting with the hot flashes. If this is what they are like with assistance, holy heffer what would they be like without??? Better living through chemistry I suppose.
The worst part is at night…like last night. As if it is not bad enough that I’m awake every 55 minutes thanks to the decongestant I am taking, I keep having night sweats! The day time hot flashes are bad enough but this night time stuff has to end. I feel like a malfunctioning Easy Bake Oven! Just stick a cake mix in my arm pit and in 5 minutes you can have freshly baked cupcakes.
Combining this with the cold medication made for some wicked weird dreams last night. Keebler Elves take me captive and force me to consume cremated remains in my fudge stripe cookies and protein shakes. Seriously, I have to watch what I read before I go to bed until this cold/allergy attack from hell moves on. My son had a post on his Facebook status that read: Would you add a cremated dead guy to your protein shake for $1,000,000?? (Dead serious). At first I thought GROSS, not a chance. Then I actually started to figure how much is really left of the body after it is cremated and….YUCK what is wrong with me? Evidently there are a whole lot of desperately broke folks on his friends list because it spawned a lengthy series of comments most in favor of it, like me, but wanting to know how MUCH of said dead and over baked corpse had to be consumed in the shake. Where the fudge stripe cookies came in from is beyond me. Perhaps it was the cookie dough ice cream I passed on when I got home, or the Snickers peanut butter candy bars I also bypassed in the kitchen despite craving chocolate and other assorted junk food last night. When I woke up in a fog I muttered out loud that I had about had it with the hot sweats and night flashes. Yeah, it’s the drugs.
Anyway I cannot seem to find a happy medium in body temperature. I’m either freezing to death or over heating. I’m sitting here writing this with the window open next to me and it is 30 degrees outside. Which is a heat wave compared to the single digits and negative wind chill temps a few days ago, but really??? We gals get to have ALL the fun in life.
