I woke up soaked in sweat.
The bed was also drenched...and I was mortified. This had been happening to me over and over again, but this time it was worse than it had ever been.
I got up out of bed and went into the bathroom. I took a look at myself and was shocked.
Have you ever had one of those moments where you look at the person staring back at you from the mirror and you think...who is this woman?
That's what happened to me.
I had been suffering for months and months from terrible night sweats, which led to poor sleep and insomnia. My energy levels had dropped terribly and I was having trouble concentrating and focusing throughout my day. I was in the midst of menopause and it was a horrifying experience.
I looked at myself in the mirror that night, with my hair plastered to my forehead, with my face looking tired and my whole body looking puffy after I'd put on an extra 30lbs and I thought...
Who the heck is this woman?
