"Today"

Today my mind is mush

and after a hot flash

I am just a puddle

so this is menopause?

 

Teenagers, cancer, chemo and menopause

each it's own challenges

thrown all at once

and I too get overwhelmed

 

Bed, oh bed my sweet respite

asleep I do not have to deal with it

I do not have to cope

I just slumber another day away

 

Each day that passes

brings me closer to the end

or my new beginning

yes....my new beginning

Sounds like a day in bed is the perfect prescription for today.  Go for it!  Relax and build up your energy for that wonderful new beginning!!!

"Teenagers, cancer, chemo and menopause"

rendered speechless...

with one exception, laying in the bed would be my solitude...

    Absolutely, your new beginning! (Cutting back on carbs helps with menopause symptoms. Also, if you can get away with a sheet as compared to a heavy blanket at night, that will help with hot flashes and night sweats.)
