I’ve been taking a break from blogging for a while.
Mainly due to morning time being consumed with watering the garden (it’s been very hot and dry, this spell broke with rumbling thunderstorms yesterday – enough humidity about now).
But also caused by “cannaebebotheredness” als the Scottish would call this condition. An overall lack of ideas. Combined with a very low attitude, bordering on depression and anxiety. I kept blaming it on chemical changes in my body, caused by my decision to stop smoking (after thirty years of regular intake of a minimum of two, often three packs of cigarettes per day).
However, friends and my sweetheart convinced me, this annoying condition might be caused by something entirely different. Menopause. Inconvieniently, this idea was introduced and accepted around my birthday, making me feel even lower (and older).
Sweetheart – as the expert problemsolver on everything – asked Dr.Google and soon came up with a pill made out of a plant known to American natives to help women in hormonal changes of all sorts. It’s called Cimicifuga, after the plant’s Latin name. I am not one to take pills quickly or at all, unless there is some acute indication. This one seems fairly innocuous, though. It is just a plant extract, no other chemicals added and who knows, it might help. The package insert informs one, that it takes a couple of weeks, until any change for the better will be noticed. So I still am waiting to see the small pills work their miracle on me.
Until then, I’ll just have to put up with this nuisance. And so will you, sorry to say…
