Night sweats, a particularly demonic variation on the theme of hot flashes, can cause bedclothes, sheets, and even bed partners to become soaked in our perspiration. Some Venuses experience this phenomenon more than once per night. Already plagued by insomnia and night terrors, having to get up and change your nightgown or the sheets can literally put a menopausal goddess over the edge.
I don’t suffer from night sweats any more, but I have had my share of garden variety hot flashes, especially after getting up in the middle of the night to pee. Why that should precipitate a mini-meltdown I have no idea. Just another in a series of weird phenomena that accompany the Change! At any rate, I would perspire ever so lightly during my small flashfire, still it would be enough to make my jammies uncomfortably moist.
First I’d find myself in the middle of my own personal global warming crisis. Second, an ice age would commence as wet, clammy nightwear sucked the warmth from the core of my body. I’d shiver my way to full wakefulness. Hot, cold, hot, cold. Endless climactic dramas throughout the midnight hours.
Imagine my delight in discovering Drydreams, fantastic pajamas that wick away moisture from night sweats and nocturnal flashes. Creator Anne Best designed this terrific sleep apparel after she underwent breast cancer surgery along with abrupt menopause. Her night sweats were so debilitating that she was getting little rest. Her professional athlete husband suggested she try wearing some of his moisture-wicking athletic clothing, and voila. Sleep! Those of us who’ve suffered from the long nights know just how delicious a commodity sleep can be. A dry, comfortable night’s rest might make it possible for us to deal with all the myriad physical, mental, and emotional changes afflicting us.
I have been dry and cool at night, ever since I started wearing these wonderful pajamas and nightgowns. One of Anne’s customers calls them the "magic pajamas" and I have to agree with her. An added little bonus came when my husband remarked "Wow. Those are really pretty." I’m getting rid of all my other jammies – don’t need ’em, can’t use ’em.
And here’s the kicker. All profits are donated to cancer research. Wow. I can be cool, comfortable, and doing good works all at the same time. Now there’s something we can all sleep on. Check out the Drydreams Night Sweats Sleepwear for yourself – just click on the link below.
