    Felt like this on Wednesday. I had come on - yet again, regular as bloody clockwork me! - and felt great in myself, but absolutely knackered with a rotten gut ache. Very unlike me, but when we got in I laid on the sofa and had a kip!  I absolutely hate sleeping during the day, and very rarely feel tired during the day, even if I haven't slept well.  Sure sign things are a-changingsad!

    Remember around Xmas time when i found this forum that I felt like I was getting 'flu the day before I came on. Had felt like that for a couple of years, every month. Once I bled, I felt fine.  To be honest I've been very well generally for yonks: can't remember the last time I was actually 'ill'. 

    I've started taking Menopace and feel really good for it: mentally and physically - my joint paid is 1m times better.  Hopefully that'll help ward off colds etc. 

    Think I was thrown with this Period as right up to actually starting I felt really, really good.  That'll teach me for fogetting that this crappy Curse has lots of tricks up its sleeve to put the spanner in the works at the drop of a hat!

    No doubt you're rattling around like the rest of us with tons of vits and mins, but I know a few people who swear by Echinacea to ward off a cold. Any use?

    I'm in Peri so can only imagine things will get worse long before they get better.  Its not fair, is it?sad

    Chin up Kid!
