A quick housekeeping note - there will be no #5SmartReads this week due to some internal planning and an extraordinarily busy week. Thank you for understanding, and have a wonderful week! I’ll spare you the details of the past two weeks - they’ve been the usual blur of work, kids, and another round of potty training (which has mercifully gone much better than the first attempt). I’ll leave you with some things I’ve been loving right now:
Very curious about your experience with the booster flaring your perimenopausal symptoms. Both the vaccines & covid have given me horrible PMS symptoms. Most of the info and research I've found has been more targeted to period timing, not other symptoms so I'm wondering the actual prevalence of these other symptoms and if this is being studied anywhere. Mine are prominent enough that I'm hesitant to continue getting boosters (and I'm a doctor and very pro vax).
