Mine was pretty bad, and i was stunned, that i did have such a hard time with it, cuz i always saw myself as very durable, sturdy type, but nooooooooo, i had troubles.
I had hot flashes, insomnia (which, at the time, i didn't realize WAS a symptom) a lil trouble focusing, and gained almost 20 lbs. My hot flashes were pretty bad for months, and once, while watching a nature show about creatures at the bottom of the ocean that blink off and on, i pointed at tv, and told my family, "THAT looks like, how i FEEL!!"
ON the bright side, this reverse puberty does end.
For me, mentalpause was such a shock to my system, it was almost like waking up with someone else's metabolism and body.
Anyone see that movie "Avatar" about humans being transferred into blue alien-ish bodies? Mentalpause for me, was like that scene where the guy wakes up for first time in the new, blue body..
(okayyyyyyy maybe i am exaggerating juuust a lil bit there..)
but, it ends!! Then, it's all good.
