My utility bills run on an average of 100-150 a month. That includes garbage and an outside utility light (security). I pay a separate water bill which is normally 20.00/month. If I had to pay what some of you pay, I'd have to do without. Good grief...that's higher than my house payment!

Lordy....just another reason to love being in Alabama.

Then you would hate being here because my garbage collection runs $39.99 every three months, not too bad, but then gas which has been really high since this cold winter about $88.00+ monthly, when it is usually only $26.00 in summer. The electric bill is a monthly prorated bill of $166.96 a month. Our water use to be free but now ranges from $12.00 to $20.00 a month. I have to pay for sewer and thats $14.33 each month. I paid cash for my home in 1990 but have to pay space rent and it is up to $700.00 monthly. Granted this is a resort and absolutely gorgeous, offering tons of emenities BUT its not cheap either.

I personally could make due with less space, not all the emenities with less to pay out monthly. I have been thinking of either moving or looking for a roommate to share the space rent at least once my ex leaves. I HATE moving!

Get a lady boomer to share expenses. I'll bet lots of gals would
love to share your home. Sounds good to me. And if I wasn't
married, I'd seriously consider it.

I would love to have a couple of boomers sharing my home and all the amenities. It would be fun, like the Golden Girls...

Danita,
I was having the same problem- couldn't get through the night without waking up freezing throughout. I was miserable!!! I thought this menopause thing was for the birds but I am afraid of Hormone Replacement etc etc. A friend of mine turned me onto my new "favorite thing" - pajamas made by Goodnighties. It is like I never had the problem. Has anyone else tried them who is reading this? Now I give them to all my friends turning 50! LOL Hope this helps...Meg

I used to be incredibly sensitive to cold. I kept my house at about 85-degrees and, if the weather dipped below 75 I got out the parka. Thanks to hot flashes I no longer have the problem - lol!

Too funny, Rita! Good thing you were living in Lala during the freezing years. Now you just have to sock some money away for the air conditioning bills during our lovely summers.

Women have become so accustomed to having night sweats and other low estrogen symptoms that they say it's normal. It's not normal. PMS is not normal. Menopause is not normal. 100 years ago these things did not exist.

Women in their twenties don't get hot flashes (unless their estrogen is in the tank). The only difference between a 25 year old woman and a 55 year old woman are the levels of estrogen she has.

If you truly want to get rid of the night sweats, and the other symptoms of estrogen deficiency you have, find a doctor who knows how to restore your estrogen to optimal levels. As long as your estrogen is optimal, you will never have another hot flash or night sweat again.
