I knoiw that everyone is different - do this is only my experience. I feel like it is a flushed feeling that usually manifests itself when I am TRYING to sleep - insomnia follows - then frustration at being forced to watch infomercial after late night infomercial in an effort to bore myself to sleep.

Not sure why laying does makes a difference - but one thing I am sure of

IF MEN EXPERIENCED THIS THEY WOULD HAVE CURED IT YEARS AGO.

Just saying

I don't agree with you.
My mother, who had me suffered 20 years from hot flashes and I who didn't have children only had about 4-5 hot flashes in 5 years. On the other hand, my best friend who had 2 abortions but no kids showed up with most of her hot flashes before menopause began and they didn't stop until a year after she stopped taking hormones.
Menopause has a lot of symptoms and any woman can suffer from none, or one, or many of them. It is truly a personal experience for each woman. However, I truly believe that our attitude about menopause has a lot to do with how we handle it. I think people who are less likely to be overly emotional or dramatic will either have less symptoms or handle them better.
By all means, we have to educate our husbands when the time comes so they know what to expect. That way, they are armed with more understanding and the knowledge that everything is not about them and that this is only a temporary situation.
I also do not believe in using hormones under normal circumstances to delay menopause. The older you get, the harder it will be for you to deal with it.

Look at the newest issue of Vanity Fair with Ryan Oneill.
He said he wasn't understanding when Farrah was going through it.

I can relate to the loss of nouns. It really is frustrating.

I don't know if Progerterone has been mentioned yet. Available OTC - about $20. Maybe worth a try - it balances estrogens - I get it from progesterall.com OH, and I've heard two reports that use of progesterone stopped incontinence!! And those two ladies were delighted about that!!

If you think of hot flashes as "Glowing" you will feel better about them.

Don't worry, it isn't permanent. I am 10 years past memopause and my mind is sharp as a tack.
