‘Riding the Scam’ – My Fun, New Pastime.

No comments:

I answered the phone one afternoon last week to a man’s voice on the other end saying:
“Hello ma’am” followed by unintelligible mumbling that ended with “you today?”
“Who is this?” I ask spidey senses tingling. 

The voice repeats itself:
“Hello ma’am” unintelligible mumbling “you today?”  I’m pretty sure I’m being scammed.  For some reason though, I keep going instead of slamming the phone down.
“I’m sorry, I can’t hear you.  Who is this?” I ask again.
 Hubby, pouring tea, is looking very puzzled.

A Sleep Plan for Me

No comments:

A quick update on the first step in my Menopause Moi Makeover plan…
I am taking my own advice from the Tips for Getting a Good Night’s Sleep post and trying to come up with some simple changes to improve my trips to the Land of Nod.

Right now I am sleeping better anyway, as the hot flashes have subsided, but I want to start some good habits now, to be ready should they return.

Menopause Moi Makeover (The Blog)

No comments:

As you will shortly start to see, I am not the only one around here getting a makeover.  The blog is going to be getting one too.  I have been writing this now for about eight months, with greater or lesser degrees of success, and think it needs a bit of freshening up.
When I started, I gave myself a year to see how it would go.  Time has flown by as it tends to do, at this point in life.  I have learned a lot throughout this process, but not as much as I could have so far.  I don’t want to get to the end of this experiment without giving it my all, and extracting the most benefit out of it that I could.

Menopause Moi Makeover (Me)

No comments:
I'm happy to report that my hot flashes have, once again, abated and I am sleeping like a baby the whole night!  This has, obviously, made me feel so much better.

That having been said, this change has absolutely nothing to do with anything that I have or have not done differently in life.  It is merely by fluke and hormonal fluctuation that I am in this state of grace!

I still have not had a chance to discuss the lack-of-sleep issue with a doctor.  A peculiarity of the practice that I go to is that they hold Women's Health clinics every couple of weeks or so, and it is there, rather than my GP that I am to go for help. 

Their next clinic is completely booked up, so it will be sometime in December at the earliest before I will get in.  Does anyone else's doctor do the same thing?  I find it a bit frustrating, but that is probably because I have no patience!!
