But, then today, I went to a local thrift shop and found this picture and thought about it a minute and realized that it was fate. I am supposed to write a post about my passage into womanhood.. So, here I am writing about my recent episodes with hot flashes.
I was thoroughly taken back with my first flash as I thought I was getting sick and actually took my temperature periodically throughout the onset of flashes I was getting. I suddenly had this thought? Could it be? Could I actually be getting mature enough to have a hot flash? Sure enough, since the first flash, I have had them on a regular basis.
I was food shopping last Sunday and was wearing a light jacket. I suddenly felt a flash coming on and immediately took the jacket off and scooted over to the frozen food section. Had I not been in such a public place I would have taken off all my clothes as I was literally burning up! I've always heard about "Spontaneous Human Combustion" and wondered, can a woman self combust from a hot flash?
I've realized that they come and go in a flash and especially at night. I am getting tired of riping the covers off one minute and grabbing them up the other. Is there an answer to this ridiculous womanly symptom?
I guess the answer is that I'm just "One Hot Mama".. It's a good thing that my husband is a fireman so he can put my fires out..
