Eyes Wide Open

Being on the roller coaster of peri-menopause, I decided it was high time to do a little research to figure out what the hell is wrong with me. Besides there was nothing else to do, it was 2:47 a.m.

The first thing I find on the internet is “some peri-menopausal changes can result in sleep disruption.”

No shit.

This entry also advised me that “this is a time that brings new perspectives and opportunities.”

My new perspective, apparently, is to be gained by becoming a night owl which now gives me something else in common with my teenager who would keep a sleep schedule like Dracula if I let him.

Gee, maybe we’ll bond after all. Because the only thing we’ve been able to share lately is the tube of Clearasil.
