Change Of Life

I'm feeling kind of low today I didn't sleep a wink

I cannot function properly or have the power to think

I'm doing such stupid things coz my mind is all a blur

This scleroderma thing I have, is more for me to incur

Not only am I changing, my life is weird just coz

I'm 46 and starting my natural menaupause


I'm generally the type of person who always feels the chill

And if the whole family are sweating Y'know I never will

My layers of heavy clothing whilst others wear skimpy gear

I'm often very mistaken, "Look Nanook of the north is here"!

But I've started with an experience, I can't quite get a grip

First I'm freezing my bottom off then out of the bed I slip

I'm sweating from my big toe up like a wave I'm overcome

I'm having a red hot flush just like my good old mum

I never thought I'd be this warm but it isn't really a pleasure

And Oooops! here comes another one just for good measure!


Oh what fun I'm having, my hubby thinks I'm a loon

I'm tearing off all my clothing, down to my knickers soon

And then I start to shiver and back goes on my clothes

And act like nothing happened only mother nature knows!

Yes! I'm on the change of life it's happened to me twice

Once with scleroderma and now something else not nice

How cruel life can sometimes be when you're neither hot nor cold

And nothing to look forward to this life of growing old


Oh ######! I'm not complaining, no Sir, not me, no way

There are far too many people worse off than me today

And what I have is natural only I'd rather it not be yet

I've only just gotten over something I'd rather forget

I know I should be thankful and yes I truly am

My life as yet to flourish not be a hidden sham
