Yes, I did say hot flashes. It is not only for women, though. Guys will go through it some day also. This is generally not known.
This is a personal type of thing for anyone who has experienced it. It is very uncomfortable and to be avoided when you can. There are a lot of personal issues that people do not want to talk about. If we had, then when it happens to you, it wouldn’t be so startling, though. You would at least know what to expect.
If you live long enough, there are a lot of different things that can be experienced. Some of these can be good, some just embarrassing. Other things not talked about are farts, burps, skin rashes, you name it, they happen. Why are we so touchy talking about natural things? I don’t know. Things happen, they happen, I guess the weather is easier. Hot isn’t it?
