For several days I thought I must have been getting sick...I noticed several times that I felt quite warm and thought I was getting a fever. I only realised a few days ago that these are actually hot flushes! Doh! Had to laugh at myself!
I am so relieved that I am not going crazy, I was seriously starting to doubt my sanity. My moods seemed all over the place as I questioned every aspect of my life... underneath it all, a strong power was building. I felt like I wanted to roar, then cry, then run a mile, then sleep for a week.
I had thought that this phase was mostly about physical changes, but there is so much more going on. I'm actually excited for this. I feel like I am going through a whole new level of growing up, into greater wisdom and acceptance. I knew I would face "the change" sooner or later. I just didn't expect the power surge I am feeling. Woo hoo!
