but I got the hot flashes in the night time.
They are pretty awesome, and to tide me over until my vagina doctor appointment next Tuesday I did a quick web search, and WebMD had some lovely suggestions for how to ameliorate the hot flashes:
Stress. That is a tough one with some recent events.* I don't know about tenure yet. But sure, I will try to cut back on my stressful thinking.
Caffeine. Wow. I love the Diet Coke. LOVE it. That is another toughy.
Alcohol. Seriously? I like to unwind with a cold beverage now and again. It helps with the STRESS.
Spicy foods. Now they are just taunting me. We add jalapenos, red pepper flakes and Tabasco to nearly everything then wash it down with Diet Coke or BEER.
Tight clothing. DUDE, I have really started digging the yoga/running pants that make me look slimmer and shirts that FIT so I only look as big as I actually am.
Heat. I live in ALABAMA, however, the weather is currently cooperating with it being about 12 degrees right now.
Cigarette smoke. This one? I can do, hands down. I don't smoke and there is no smoking allowed in buildings in my town.
ehh, in retrospect, waking up a half dozen times completely sweaty wasn't all THAT bad...
*I got news that my dissertation chair has blood cancer, to go along with my colleague very close to dying and my friend who may or may not have a complete spinal cord injury VERY high up which could mean complete paralysis. We haven't gotten any news from his wife since the surgery.
