Trying to stay young is exhausting.

Trying to stay young is exhausting.

When I was in my twenties I’d come home from a night on the town, or just a long day at work, brush my teeth and roll into bed. Thankfully when I was about twenty eight a good friend chastised me severely and told me that if I didn’t want my face to look like shoe leather when I was forty, I’d better start taking better care of it. She admonished me to wash my face every night and put on a good night cream. I followed her advice and I must say I’ve done pretty well by it. I’ll see someone that I haven’t seen for years and hear, “Wow, you haven’t changed a bit.” I know this is a common statement for schmoozers. However, without being egotistical, I think I’ve held up pretty well.

Now that I am in my fifties my night ritual is much more time consuming. Before I apply the aforementioned night cream, I have to apply the age spot remover, the under eye cream and the wrinkle remover. After they have had sufficient time to dry I slap on the night cream. Then I apply my essential oil that is supposed to help with my menopausal hot flashes.

Speaking of menopause, I’ve added four vitamins to my daily arsenal. Along with Estroven, I take, Black Cohosh, Flax oil, and vitamin E. All have been touted to aid in the symptoms of menopause. Is any of this helping you ask? Heck no! But I can’t stop taking the behemoth stack of daily vitamins because I’m afraid that they may be keeping my symptoms from getting worse. God forbid the night sweats, hot flashes and memory loss get any more unbearable.

So to all of you young girls out there that think it is a pain to wash your face every night; enjoy it, I say. Relish every puny little moment it takes to protect your youth. One day you will be in my shoes. I didn’t appreciate the simplicity of life then, but I sure wish I had it that easy now.

      None of the natural stuff worked. I’ve been taking Angeliq for about a year and a half and hot flashes are non-existent. It’s expensive but your doctor can line you up with discounts. If I still had hot flashes to go along with my busy life I’d go crazy. I’m very thankful for doctors and the right medication.

    Hello! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does managing a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?
    I am completely new to writing a blog however I do write
    in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or
    tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

      I’m technically challenged so I paid quite a bit of money to a website builder. If you are just getting started there are free programs through WordPress. Google WordPress and poke around the site for information. You may find that you can get something going without spending a lot of money. I find that Woodpress is very user friendly. God bless

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working
    together with? I’m looking to begin my own blog in the
    near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is really because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m seeking something completely unique. P.S
    My apologies for getting off-topic having said that i needed to ask!

      I use WordPress and like it’s simplicity. I paid a website builder to develop my site. I’m techno challenged. I think paying someone to do the job right is much better than trying to do something I’m not gifted to do. You may be more talented at that kind of thing and I think you will find WordPress easy to work with. God bless, Charisse

    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome
    blog!
