Well, between the cold flashes and hot flashes sleeping is gone. Start off trying to get warm, fall asleep. Then I spend much of the night with my head hanging out the window trying to cool off. Throw in migraines, chin hair, gas, confusion, stress incontinence, dizziness, irritability. Aren't I fun to be around??? When does this end? Late 40's. Yep so I buy a bag or look for the "perfect bag" to maintain my sanity.
