Hello everyone, I found this site a few yrs ago when searching for info on menopause. I read a lot of the threads & realized we are all in the same boat. I just registered today because I want to participate instead of just being a silent reader. Anyway I am 49 yrs old & have been in meno for approx. 2 yrs. I have had just about every symptom I read about on these boards. Right now my 2 worst problems are forgetfulness & being hot, hot, hot & I need some input on how to handle this. Can anyone else identify with forgeting appointments. Yesterday I forgot my hairdresser appt., I was so angry with myself, I can't even read my calendar correctly anymore. I leave notes everywhere but I forget to read them. I feel like a little kid who needs to be told what to do & when to do it, how humiliating is that? The only thing I have not forgotten is how hot I am. I did the hot flash thing & still am, but lately I am hot all the time. I am in a constant state of sweat & am always uncomfortable, even my AC does not help me anymore. If I lived out in the wilderness I would become a nudist because I can't even stand to have on clothes because they stick to every part of my body. Any help???

I know just how you feel but putting it into words and reading it made me laugh and feel a lot better that I am not on my own. I too am hot ,hot most of the time. I forget lots of quite important things. Don't know really what to suggest but felt I had to reply. At least you seem to have a sense of humor, don't ever lose that. It's the only thing which keeps me going at times.
