Menopause does not ever “pause” for me!

Ugh…  I could talk about this very personal subject for a month and never be done with it.  I think God really punished the woman because of Eve’s actions…  what’s so appealing about the fruit of good and evil anyway?  I’d rather go for some candy!
I am definitely in the thick of it now.  Even though I’m on estrogen, I still get the horrible side effects that come with menopause.  I can’t imagine what I would be like without the medicine having gone one month into it without.  My  poor husband.  He’s a saint!  Over-night I became this irrational woman who wanted to eat him every time he spoke a word.

One time I even flipped the small coffee table because he irritated me so much and I couldn’t yell loud enough and long enough at him before and after flipping that table!  He walked out the door and I had to clean up the whole mess I made.  Good for him!   I was planning my thick revenge the moment he walked out that door.
For you young “moms” reading this… you are next!  You thought giving birth was the tough part?  Not even.   This is that times 1000!   And I’m telling you that I tried all the herbal “cures” and chanting and stretching and the head in the freezer and head out the window and fan in every room and on me every time a spell would set on and nothing works!   It’s the beast. 
I keep checking in with my sister who is only two and one half years younger than me and she says that nothing has happened yet.  I keep reminding her that she is in store for it.  I also told her to not be afraid of taking estrogen since no one in our family has had any type of cancer.  I feel like I’m the older sister because I can handle pain so much better than her.

Anyone who can handle fibromyalgia can handle the beast!  But get those two together and you have a war going on in your body.
Here are some places on the Internet that you should definitely visit to learn about Menopause:

Are you going through menopause?  Do you have friends going through it and have seen what happens?  Have you already gone through it and are on the other side now?  What would you like to share if anything!  Thanks for reading!
