Hormone Deficit Disorder: HDD and ADD in Menopause

Memory loss and brain fog swirling through my head are sadly not the only afflictions visited upon my poor mind with menopause.  Oh no, seems it wasn’t enough that I can’t think clearly or remember a doggone thing.  Now I get to add ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) to the list of mental whammys that accompany the Change.

Here’s an example occurring present tense, right this moment:  I’m trying to write this next blog entry.  What shall it be about?  Midlife challenges and what will we be when we grow up?  That’s a great one.  But wait, there are goddesses still suffering horrendous hot flashes, maybe that’s what needs to be addressed next.  Depression – that’s a biggie.  No, what’s most important to look at is the question of whether or not to use HRT. I could devote several entries to that topic alone.

Like a hyperactive monkey swinging from branch to branch above the menopausal fray, my mind moves  ever more quickly from thought to thought.  Topics pass by in a blur.  Hair growth in weird places, emotional roller coaster, loss of sex drive, hair thinning, acne, wrinkles, acne and wrinkles together, age spots, herbal remedies, dry EVERYTHING, help for depression, fear of everything, night sweats, bodacious tatas, weight gain, advice to our daughters, relationships, empty nests, a vision for the second half of life, and blah, blah, blah.

It’s overwhelming and makes me want to go into the kitchen for some chocolate or wine.  Or chocolate AND wine.  The only good news is that there is never a dearth of subjects when dealing with this time of life, so I ought to be writing this blog – well pretty much FOREVER.

Help me out if you can; let me know what topics YOU dear goddesses think should be talked about next.  Otherwise, I’ll just let the monkey grab onto whatever topic he happens past and the blog entries will be in no particular order, rhyme, or reason.  Kinda like menopause.
