So, my hot flashes slowed down for a week or two. I thought I was in the clear! No such luck. They’re back in force.

If you’ve never had a mid-life uterus-owner hot flash, you may not know what they’re like. It’s not really like feeling hot because you’re sick or overheated or something.

Hot flashes are like you’re being microwaved from the inside out. You often feel really prickly, especially on your face. It feels unbearable and you feel desperate to cool off. But there is no escaping the heat. You could be fanning yourself with the cool surrounding air, but there is no relief. You just have to survive it, keep wiping off the sweat, and wait it out. Then you can put your hoodie back on because it’s actually cold in the room.
