“When my Brain Caught on Fire”
As Dr. Christiane Northrup M.D. eloquently stated in her book, The Wisdom of Menopause, “menopause puts your life under a Microscope”.
I was lying in bed in a semi-conscious state with a feeling that something wasn’t quite right. The first thing I noticed as I began to enter into full awareness of my circumstance was that I was shivering uncontrollably, followed by the shocking realization that my pajamas and bedding were totally and completely soaked. What happened? Night sweats.
This was one of the first of many perimenopausal symptoms that began for me at age 36. The onslaught of symptoms that bombarded me the following years had me completely baffled and in a blind panic search for relief.
