Hiya Jill, we seem to be chasing the elusive sleep!!!!! The pill that I take helps with my anxiety and I could fall asleep easily but once, the hot flushes and night sweats occur, there goes my 💤💤💤
So if need be, I normally will take the pill during the day.....found that my anxiety is at its worst in the mornings
Thats not bad at all.....venturing out with your dog 😄
Hopefully the magnet will work after the month trial...
Wishing you more hours of sleep for tonight and nights to come

No, haven’t tried sage pills at all.... read that it works for some women. Another seems to work is the red clover, haven’t tried too!!
Hows your magnet? Do you find it helpful?
Was so naive....daft even....to think that when I was first diagnosed, after mx and treatments, All will be business as usual but NO..... have been so struggling with the side effects, definitely life changing. Try very hard to be positive daily but it does get to you....you know what I mean.
Yup, it is soul destroying......assassination of our former self....
A BIG Hug for you, JIll..... Belle xxx

Whew.....we sound alike.....hot flushes then anxiety....Why is it that we get anxiety after the hot flushes?? Can’t comprehend!!
I think I have resigned to the fact that I could not get a proper night sleep. The hours I get really depends on the intensity and frequency of the hot flushes and anxiety! Come to think of it.....I have not got complete night rest since my diagnosis!!!
Heres to better days and and restful nights plus anxiety free

Happy to hear that you are doing better today. Nothing is worth you stressing out....
Hope that your visit to your gp is productive.....are you getting your referral letter??

Today’s a bit of downer for me.....just tired and anxious.... thanks for asking!
You have been through the mill and at this current time, you are not well to attend the meetings or work....period....and hopefully, your employer understands!
Oh dear, another sleepless night.....same here.....what’s keeping you awake? For me, it’s the hot flushes.
Are you going for your acupuncture tomorrow?

Yes, supervisor intervened yesterday.....still not confident that it will get down.
And we will try uni too. It's such a large company that you never get to speak to the same person twice and there are lots of different departments. Very frustrating😠 Managed to stay calmer yesterday though!
Are work understanding?

Thanks for asking..... I'm doing ok today. Have check up later with gp....just a few minor issues to discuss. Then off later with my daughter for a presentation evening on work she did over the Summer. Will make a nice change.
Student finance issue still not resolved. I spent an hour on the phone yesterday, just to be told something different again. Will have to wait another week to see if anything changes. Getting anxious about it as he is about to run out of money!
Sorry to read the visit has upset your progress. I hope you're not considering going back to work?!
