Hot flashes make me instantly over-the-top angry and general mood swings don't mix well with a toddler. I don't want to take hormones since they pose lots of health problems as we age. Have you had any luck following the advice in a book?
On a lighter note - just think what my husband has to look forward to with me in full perimenopause swing just as our daughter hits puberty. Lucky guy.

Buy the biggest box of popsicles... put them in the freezer. Every time you feel your temp rising eat one. It will keep you from biting someones head off, save your marriage, your friendships and they won't put you away. It works like a charm. Try it!
