For me, the worst menopause symptom I'm experiencing is super sensitive and dry, itchy skin. It started happening about two years ago while hiking, I broke out into these nasty hives and scratched myself silly... weirdest thing ever... I thought it was poison ivy but it kept happening all through the winter and I'd get these terrible sores on my scalp... BLAH!
Turns out I've developed wicked skin allergies, like if I'm wearing/use any products that contain honey and I start to sweat... UGH!... my skin will blister :( I also quit using scented/dyed laundry detergents and softeners all together.
BRAIN FOG. I am ready to hear all f your tips, vitamins, tricks. As of now, I just write everything down but (see other piece I wrote around these parts: https://tuenight.substack.com/p/if-we-need-only-5-friends-why-do) - I'm not entirely sure it's menopause related. 👀 I think that's one of my issues — how do we know whether something is menopause, general aging, the overwhelm of the world... Maybe it doesn't matter?
