I STILL do this!
The hot flashes have been the worst part of it and I still have them regularly--all during the day and at night. I sleep with a fan on my bedside table and I turn it on me, off me, on me, off me... all night long, usually without even waking up
It was hard to get used to "aging" so quickly... wow! I mean, it's like one minute I was 37, strong, active, could easily pass for a 30 year old... and 3 years later I'm a middle-aged woman who looks older than her 46 years. Most people think I'm the "older sister" when they meet me and my sister who is 2 years older than me.
