For the past couple of years, my partner has been going through menopauseâ€¦ While I sympathize with her numerous symptoms, the warm flashes as well as night sweats are the greatest complications, and she randomly gets extremely boilingâ€¦ Her face flushes as well as she starts to sweat.
She also seems to run at a higher temperature now.
Where she once constantly complained of feeling freezing as well as kept turning up the control unit, the opposite is now true. The people I was with and I used to pay sizable heating bills as well as she never wanted to run the air conditioner! Now, she’d rather not turn on the gas furnace. When it’s forty degrees outside as well as I can practically see my breath inside, she is not ecstatic if the heating plan kicks on. I walk around in thick jackets as well as often wear my jacket in the house. Even during the summer, I need to bundle up. The people I was with and I can never open the windows as well as let in some fresh air. The air conditioner blasts non stop. She sets the control component so low that there’s never a relief from the influx of cold freezing air. Our weekly electric bills are sizable. The wear as well as tear on the air conditioner is tremendous. It’s especially poor at night. She loves to lower the temperature setting by a couple of degrees. I pile on the blankets as well as still shiver. Even in the car, she turns the air conditioner up to maximum speed. I sporadically find an excuse to head outside just to moderate up a bit. I am distraught for the symptoms of menopause to pass. It has been strenuous on both of us as well as directly impacts our budget.
