I am mid fifties..I had my last period, only 3 months ago...(may have another yet) as I have had months without periods before. I have just started with hot flushes, and a total lack of sleep... tired all the time too (new). Mood swings also being noted...(not so new)
Yet, I have found myself doing and saying things I would never have said and done before. I work in job that needs my full attention. I have been unswaving in my quest to be the best I can, never judged anyone, infact, I have always been understanding of how people are, knowing I do not live their lives and respecting them, no matter how they live.I am a big advocate for making sure people are treated with respect etc.
What I have also found, I am not giving my 'full self' to my job, finding at times, I am a bit distant to it all . Don't get me wrong, I have still continued to work with the people with respect etc when I am with them, but, I somehow, feel its 'someone else' doing it! I have also made the odd derogatory remarks about people too, and that really is NOT ME!
Has anyone else found themselves saying or doing things ... so out of character and feeling like this? I hope it is menopause, and that I am not going mad!
