My husband and I were laying in bed watching tv and talking when I felt a hot flash coming on. These are new to me and are intermittent without any regularity. It kind of happens suddenly as a twinge of raised temp then very quickly escalating into feeling like you opened a 450 degree oven and breathed in deeply.
I lost the train of the conversation and I had started fidgeting and he asked what was wrong, why was I so agitated all of a sudden? As I began kicking my legs around suddenly desperate to get that blanket off immediately, I told him, I'm having a hot flash, it will pass. As I began pulling my shirt up to get if off my skin and let our fan blow across me for a moment I looked at my husband and he was grinning.
And then he said:
Hey maybe this won't be so bad after all. Sudden stripping...I could get used to this. If you're going to start ripping your clothes off in front of me all the time I'm going to enjoy this menopause thing. This is great!
I had to laugh....
And I said: Well, thank you honey, I'm glad to hear that.
And then he said: See, you should be happy after all these years I still like looking at you naked.
And I said: I am happy and I do appreciate that!
And then he said: Now you can write about that on your blog.
And I said: You're right, I will!
I'm not sure he took me seriously......
he should know better ; )
any of my kids reading this just got what they deserved xp
