Welcome to another edition of A.Vogel’s Menopause Flash. As menopause approaches, your hormones will take a roller-coaster ride, which might leave you feeling especially tired. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal.
We’re bothered by hot flashes all day and we soak the sheets sweating at night, that is, when insomnia isn’t keeping us awake instead. Eventually, we manage to function, at least somewhat, despite being tired all the time. But there’s also that other kind of fatigue that comes with menopause. The dramatic kind. It comes in waves and bowls us over both physically and mentally.
