Day 937 wide awake at 3.45am and Happy Halloween 🎃 👻

Wide awake at 3.45am. My mind was wandering. No amount of “forcing” myself to sleep was going to help.

I should start by saying that my head is actually in a good place before I moan a bit…. I’m shattered tonight. It’s hardly surprising.

The Farm has been really difficult these last few workouts. I’m stiff and sore. I feel like a lead weight… but I’m still doing it. My knee twinged again this morning. I feel like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz who just needs a good oiling….. that probably came out all wrong and I can hear some sniggers up the back. 😂😂

I’ve a wee rookie error with my 2nd HRT patch…. I got Craig to fit it and boy did he enjoy ripping the first one off 😫🩹 I was sitting on the edge of the couch leaning forward so it’s fitted while I was at full stretch so it feels like it’s wrinkling when I stand straight. It feels really weird. That’s said, it’s only for another 2 days.

I’m listening to Davina McCall’s book Menopausing for the second time. I’m soaking it all up like a sponge.

900,000 UK women have left their jobs because of menopause symptoms. I’m not in the statistic. How many other women are out there that have gone through the same as I have? It’s shocking!

I’ve been a wee bit anxious, a bit nervous, a bit irritable but my head underneath all that is still good. Overall, still calm…. And it feels like a great place to be.

Stay safe everyone 🎃🎃🎃
