Where’s a Hot Flash When You Need One?

I was expecting it.  I was actually looking forward to it—but not once did I experience a hot flash while spending the last three days in Michigan. 

I went to Detroit for a Marketing Conference.  It was definitely a time for “sweating it out” due to the intensity of going up against others who were equally knowledgeable and gifted in the same field.

It would’ve been perfect timing to break out in a hot sweat!  After all, I was in a State where the temperature struggled daily to reach double digits and there was enough snow to keep me dreaming of a White Christmas. 

This was the kind of weather menopausal women like me long for because my body could’ve gotten some much needed relief from that never-ended personal summer of mine!

But no such luck.  It seems as though my hormones were perfectly content to experience the sub zero temperatures on the outside and INSIDE.  Menopause was not going to allow me to use it as an excuse to act out or succumb to its other wiles.

But maybe it wasn’t a hot flash I really needed after all.  CONFIDENCE is always my trump card!

  1. Yes, there are definitely conditions that warrant a good ole hot flash now and then. But, like you, I think I tend to save mine until conditions outside are near tropical, thus creating conditions inside my body that verge on flashing fireworks from Hades.
    Oh well, enjoying our menopause means embracing the whole package, so we midlife gals might as well do just that with a smile on our hot and sweaty faces!

  2. Where is a hot flash when you need one? Growing up in those cold climes of Chicago and the various frigid regions of Wisconsin (Green Bay as a young adult–brrrr!), I didn’t realize that maybe it was my naturally rampant hormones of youth that kept me warm. It’s so neat to know, Beverly, that you keep your cool regardless of weather.:) Glad to hear it sounds like you had a positive and successful trip.
