Anxiety: I'm glad you asked!
What a tumultuous beginning to 2020! If your email inbox/es, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media feeds are blowing up with everything and anything Coronavirus – COVID-19 like mine, I’m guessing your anxiety level is rather high. Rather than bore you with another COVID-19 article (I’m not a medical professional and so what good would my words do you (wink)?!); I thought I’d share a bit about how anxiety – especially chronic – which might be closer to how you’re feeling these days – affects our body.View Post
Did you know that having dry eyes is a lesser known symptom of menopause? I sure didn’t, but I learned this new tidbit when I went for an eye exam this past week. After having the dilation exam and going over the outcome from that, she asked me if I noticed that I didn’t tear up as much, or itchy dry eyes, and discomfort. After thinking about it a bit, I realized that in fact I don’t. So the cause….yep…you guessed it….once again it’s those hormones that are to blame. View Post
Honestly, how prepared were you for all the changes that you’d go through when you started the journey into menopause?!?! Me…well, my mother had a hysterectomy before I even had my first period so I was clueless! I knew about hot flashes and night sweats, although when they hit me over 10 years ago and I literally felt I was drowning some nights, more knowledge would have been useful. But, another sign of this aging process that I wasn’t ready for was how much my skin would change! Dry like the Sahara! View Post
