OK, so here’s what I know about hot flashes.

At any given moment, I can be found ripping off my scarf on the subway because I am overcome with a heat so intense it’s nauseating.

But, on the flip side, when the heat in my home decides not to work at around 5 a.m., it’s awfully convenient to break out into a sweat that has me throwing off the covers for relief.

What an absolute hoot hormones can be.
