Hey Ladyjane, my partner in crime! Glad I'm not the only one who looks like a matchstick on our terrace (a red head with a white body).
We can run in the nude to our hot tub without any neighbors seeing us. I have noticed, though, that when birds fly over our house they flap with just one wing because they cover their eyes with the other. heh heh

You all are such an accomplished group of poets! I am still laughing and drying the tears. I am so thankful that I missed all of that as far as I know. I never had any of it before surgery and none since.

I agree that if men had hot flashes there would already be a pill for it. Thankfully we can still laugh and join with our sisters in understanding what's happening to our bodies.

Loved all of the poems and will, with permission, send them to some friends of mine who will definitely enjoy them.

By the way, Wordscribe, I loved your blog. Totally a great article and am looking forward to your anthology on the 21st century feminist. My daughter who is 27 and I have great discussions about the 2nd and 3rd wave of feminism. When will it be available?

Hi Sandpiper!

I had the worst cold so I didn't check forum messages for a while.

Thanks so much for the compliment on the blog! I'm not sure when the anthology will come out -- I believe it's a matter of whether it will be published traditionally or self-published. It looks like it has a lot of great essays and other works in it so I am looking forward to it, too!

Does your daughter read

http://feministing.com

It's for young feminists by young feminists.

And all the other hot flash poems (and illustration!) are great!

Take care,
Diane

Got to tell you that I work with a 24 yr old woman who last year experienced "hotflashes" for a period of time. Sooo..it doesn´t always have to be age related. She made me one very happy lady last year!!!!

There is help..but it depends whether you want it or not. Check with your doctor or search the net.

HOT LOVE!!!

Dee,
I had to laugh at your thread . I am in my late 50's and still get them . I started menopause at 55 and still at it and asked the Doctor when does this end ? He said could go on the rest of my life . Yikes! It this true ? My stress level at times is horrible . I am off estrogen now too .

Any help here .

Renee
