Not to overshare or anything

Not to overshare or anything, but I’m peri-menopausal. I’m a little on the early side, but that’s how it went for mom too, and if I thought I was going to get an extension by having come to the show late in the first place, I was sorely mistaken.

Not to overshare or anything, but that means I had a sexual peak somewhere back about 5 years, and I essentially missed it.

Not to overshare or anything, but having a hot flash is not just a matter of suddenly feeling hot. It’s suddenly feeling hot from the inside out. I don’t know how to describe this exactly: I’m warm and feverish (without the explanatory illness component), and sometimes my skin feels tingly like my sweat glands are activating, even though I don’t actually start perspiring (although I’m given to understand that this could start happening too).  Actually, it feels a lot like being deeply embarassed and blushing all the way to my toes (but without the emotional component).

Not to overshare or anything, but I might in fact be blushing to my toes. I’ve already (quite accidentally) established that having a flash occur at the same time I’m actually embarrassed or socially uncomfortable makes me turn a shade of red that is truly alarming to onlookers.
