Well you know what Maxine says:

Life is all about *****;
You're either covering it,
laughing it off,
kicking it,
kissing it,
bustin it,
trying to get a piece of it,
behaving like one
or you live with one!

Just popped in to say 'hi' to you 2 :)

I like your froggy, Alffe. Too bad he is static. (at least he isn't moving when I look at him ... maybe Doody just has a vivid imagination!) :D

Sure, I got issues...

my MIL....she's going to be the death of me
my brother....ditto...and I'll have to pay for my own funeral

the forms I have to fill out to maintain this (what I laughingly call) lifestyle....doing one now...22 freakin pages!!! with repeat questions like "what year did you stop working" "has it been more than 15 years since you worked". (guess they can't do the math lol...and they're in charge!) Dumb ones like "how often do you read" not explaining what they mean by read....books, papers, my daily mail, their idiotic forms? "how often do you walk, sit, stand, bend!!!????

Every freakin time I go to a doctor I get bad news...optometrist, vision worse and now I have the beginnings of cataracts AND he tells me it would be best if they progressed quickly so they could do surgery while I'm healthy enough....dentist, won't touch my rotting teeth because I will need to be sedated and he doesn't dare with my health problems....have an appointment with primary coming up and I'm a little nervous to say the least.

I'm on my way to bedybuy and here you come with the delish cookies choccy at that!

thats a womans issue if I've ever had one!! Chemar, I have been looking all week for a post you sent to me and I haven't found it yet. Did I get a thread file 13 ed? Probably did. Y'all know me, always misbehaving:p

I'm old and thats a womans issue isn't it? well, just call me granma Moses or granny grits.

Alffe! You brought along that dancing frog. I wondered why it wasn't dancing and then I realized the movement may bring on seizures.

Which reminds me, my 2 1/2 yr. old g-daughter was waking up at night having them. Well she isn't exactly waking up, all the rest stuff though. She had a MRI done yesterday and I haven't be able to get in touch today. I'm hoping no news is good news.

They live in Atlanta and I am not easy about driving that far these days.She is my angel. please say a prayer for her would you?

Well I'll crash and burn so I can crawl around tomorrow. I love you all, Jo

Hugs to all menopausal women everywhere.

First of all, make sure that you check in with your doctor, optometrist and dentist. There are health problems that can start to appear with menopause and you want to get an early handle on them, or better yet avoid them altogether. Exercise and proper nutrition can be a big help with the changes you will be going thru.

There are lots of sites on the web that will talk about how to control the side effects without medication BUT take the meds if you need them. There is no sense in being miserable, uncomfortable and an emotional basket case. I found that Vit E and ginseng were very helpful with the hot flashes. ( Women who are diabetic or taking high blood pressure medication or with rheumatic heart conditions should take vitamin E under a doctor's supervision ). Most women have to experiment with different herbs and supplements to find what works for them. Soy is also reputed to be a big help.

There are often changes with our body hair too. Some women will have more facial hair...peach fuzz. Some, like me, will have less hair on their heads but more on their upper lips and chin not to mention longer hair in their nose. I'm one of the "lucky" ones that now has a daily facial hair regimen...oh goody! (It's a joke that the hair on the top of my head is sinking into my nose...now there's a picture)

The emotional side of menopause....what can I say. If you notice your family seems to be avoiding you or if they mention how "touchy" you seem to be lately, listen to them. I had no idea how bad I was until friends became brave enough AFTER I was returning to normal to tease and joke about my "bad years" .

Be gentle with yourself, try to relax and take the time YOU need to deal with this change. I rejoice in the freedom from my monthly "mess" and expense. Use the extra money to buy yourself a gift or treat.

It is common for some women to have lubrication problems when they engage in sex. There are many new options out there...another reason to talk to your doctor or gyn. Many woman find this a liberating experience, and a time of renewed sexual awakening. Go for it if this is you! Just remember that every woman goes thru this and most survive :) If you can find forums for menopausal women check them out for other helpful info.
