A #giveaway for a Strong Woman

I feel really inspired to give something away. It's been awhile, too long, since I've had a giveaway on here. 

The newish job I have is going to be supported. All my likes in the form below won't be for me. They will be for where I work, and for other women bloggers that have been by my side. 

I'm going to share something really personal, but you all know I'm an open book. I don't believe in hiding things that matter. Sharing is caring. Whatever I go though something, someone else is going through that same situation as well. 

Ever since October I haven't had that special time of the month. This week I went to get my blood drawn; to see what's up with me. I found out that I get to go through the change of life slightly early. Oh joy! The first thing I asked my doctor, "Is this why I get so dang emotional?" She said, "Yes!" 

I cry when I have things to do, but don't have all the instructions to do the things I'm supposed to do. Then I laugh because I'm crying. Then I cry because I'm laughing. 

I did this painting quite awhile ago...

My doctor said, "Your ovaries are tired". That bird in the piece above is absent. I feel this emptiness inside me.

I ran across this article that talks about The Change of Life. I feel emotional, and empty. I feel like I have no one to talk to. All I'm ever around is my boys, and husband. It is what it is. Women - we should open dialog about all the things we have to go through. 

I looked up if asthma is worse when a woman goes though menopause. Apparently it is. I have extra asthma + the worry of getting covid, which also effects the lungs. 

Really I should be happy. I no longer want children + I don't have a monthly visitor. I'm free! 

I popped open my FB, and two of my friends that are my age just had babies. Even if kids where possible, I wouldn't want them. BUT...there's no denying that they were such an important part of my life, for so long. Now they hide themselves in their rooms, and barely say, "Boo!"

We've all been going through a tough time! I want to make some woman's day! 

I bought this fun bag, that I really always intended on giving away, but never did:

Inside I'm going to stuff it with random things. Like your favorite candy...

Mine is Dove chocolate, so that's sitting in my Amazon cart right now. I can get you whatever candy you desire because this post is about me, yet the giveaway is about you. 

Because we're in the midst of a pandemic I have some all natural soap + CBD hand sanitizer you can carry with you.

I have these cute RBG stickers + little elephant notebooks also in my Amazon cart. I'll buy them, once you tell me your favorite candy. 

It's giveaway time! You know the have to be over the age of 18 to enter. To make this easier on me I'm going to make this a U.S. giveaway.

What a lovely giveaway! I'm sorry you're going through the change early. Is it weird that I am so looking forward to it for me though? Periods cause my Ulcerative Colitis to flare every month, otherwise I'd feel fine. It knocked me on my ass this month though. I am thinking of asking my doctor for a hysterectomy when I go to my next appointment. I also hate how hungry I get around my period too and I usually reach for unhealthy snacks. Lindors dark chocolates are my favorite. I'd eat the whole bag if I could LOL.

Happy to help support your work. I followed on FB and Twitter. Thanks for the link too! I'm able to relate to your news a little bit. I had an emergency hysterectomy a few years ago. I can't have babies anymore either (though I was done anyway). :) I hope your emotions even out soon. I know it's a mess when they're all over the place!

Been there! It has been 4 years since I officially menopaused.

And boy am I glad I don't have to worry about getting pregnant anymore!
