The Body Tsunami

Those of you who visit the blog often….. Or visit at all, should know that I recently had a health scare which resulted in a surgery. A hysterectomy to be exact. So I am recovered from the fibroid tumor they removed but I am now and will forever have to live with the after-effects. I had a full hysterectomy and the doctor said when you get a FULL HYSTERECTOMY your body and hormones are thrown into FULL MENOPAUSE. My doctor did warn me that life would change a little after the surgery. And I thought I was prepared and could handle anything. I mean, really I just came through a life-changing ordeal, the after effects can’t be that bad………….
So, by FULL MENOPAUSE, I did not realize that meant full-blown winter and summer inside my body! I mean, seriously, my body is in the midst of some weird climate change thing. I have GLOBAL WARMING inside of me and it is NOT pretty. I literally am freezing one minute and burning the next. I have heard women talk about having hot flashes or personal summers as some call it. But uh, what I am experiencing is more than a hot FLASH. This is a freaking HOT TSUNAMI! I am not exaggerating.
The definition of Tsunami is a long high sea wave caused by an earthquake, submarine landslide, or other disturbance. An arrival or occurrence of something in overwhelming quantities or amounts.

When that heat hits, Baaabaaayyyyyy it feels like a hot tsunami! It starts with my ears. Yes, my ears get super-hot and then the heat rushes my body. It is so hot that clothing on me feel like I am being smothered with a 99-degree heating blanket. When I strip down and stand in front of the fan or window (by the way there is construction going on across from my bedroom window, so I’m guessing the construction workers get an eye full…But anyway!) That air feels like heaven! But then five minutes later I am FREEZING. When I get cold it is like a bone-chilling, deep-set cold. A cold that I feel in my bones and makes my teeth chatter. There are times when I am sitting here and just start shivering. I often walk around the house fully clothed in a blanket and gloves or with a hoody on.
I have not had a decent night’s sleep since this surgery because all night long I either toss the blankets off because I am burning hot or I am gathering the blankets up around and over my head because I am freezing. Uggghhhhh, this is so FRUSTRATING! I can be freezing cold and put on socks, a sweater, and a head wrap to go to bed and an hour later, my blankets and clothes are on the floor and I am lying there in my underwear wondering if this is what hell feels like. I am drinking ice water all night during my hot intervals but of course, then I have to go to the bathroom all night. 

Or I’m turning the heat off and on all night. My body feels schizophrenic. But even worse are the times when my body is HOT and COLD at the same time… What the hell is THAT about?????

Seriously, I don’t want to question God but ….. This is out of control!

Keep It Cool ... Or Not!
