Hello everyone! I’m Jess, co-founder and co-owner of Canax CBD.
Today, I’m going to get a little bit personal for the blog, and take you on my very own Mellow Meno journey. I’ll tell you how my life has changed with symptoms of peri menopause, what that’s been like for myself and those closest to me, and the steps I’ve taken to improve everything from my mood to my general feelings of happiness!
A difficult year.
Over the past year, I’ve been noticing a lot of things changing with myself. More brain fog, aches and pains, changes in my period, and trust me, this can happen if you have kids or no kids.
Then there’s my mood, it mostly happens during the week before my period, where my mood skyrockets to terrible levels. And I don’t mean normal levels of pre-period moodiness, I’m talking “don’t even talk to me” or “for your own safety, approach with caution” kind of mood swings!
This has gotten worse and worse as the year has gone on, and even my husband Chris has learnt the dates and knows to stay clear of me the week before my period. While everybody experiences some sort of mood fluctuation before their period, which is totally normal, I’ve never been like this, and my moods have never been this bad.
Overall, I hated it because it simply wasn’t who I was as a person.
A totally different Jess.
Once the period passes and a few days later I’ve come out the other side, I don’t even recognise the person I was just a few days earlier. I’ve been able to gain some perspective and realise, this isn’t right, and I feel totally normally again.
I’m sure ladies out there know exactly what I’m talking about here!
A much needed change.
So, during one of these moments of realisation and reflection, I decided to make a change to how I was living my life. I was sick of not recognising the person I saw in the mirror a week before my period, so I took some decisive action.
I started religiously taking Mellow Meno, and for 30 days straight, that’s what I’ve done. I know I might sound biased, but hand on heart, I can’t explain how much better I feel after taking Mellow Meno regularly for just 30 days.
A perfect example of this change in action would be just this past week, where I was on my own with the kids during the dreaded “red mist week”. Now, this would be a difficult situation to say the least previously, and one that I’ve been struggling with over the past year or so thanks to the perimenopause symptoms I’ve been feeling.
But honestly, I’ve been fine! In fact, we’ve had a fantastic time and I’ve loved the person my kids have been able to spend time with.
I can honestly say that taking Mellow Meno every day, alongside two mummy gummies, has been the key difference here, and even a month or two ago I wouldn’t have been able to deal with a week alone with the kids.
And I know I’m not the only mum out there who feels like this!
Feeling like myself.
So, one month later and I feel absolutely great.
I feel like I’ve regained control of my mood and personality, I’ve got more energy than I have at any point over the past year, and my head is clear with no moody stranger looking back at me when I check the mirror.
I’ve found myself thinking on more than one occasion “ahhh, there she is, she’s back”, and honestly, there’s no better feeling in the world.
And as for the mixed emotions, well, that’s just part of being a woman! But if you can control them, then that’s another story altogether.
