May be too much information for some

If you read my blog you know that sometimes my posts are much more positive the others. I also know that in "real" life, certain times of the month I am feeling less optimistic then others. It truly is my blessing and my curse. The ebbs and flow of my cycle really mess with my mood. This month, yuck. I think stress makes it worse for me. In fact I am sure of that. I also think that as I grow older, it has gotten more intense. I'm watching a show now on PBS about Women and Menopause . It's very interesting and I am finding that so much of my past history of really bad cramps along with emotional despair, is quite normal. It the beauty of being a woman. Although it feels less beautiful and really ugly. I don't like how I am feeling about myself or about things this morning. I am such a generally positive person. I don't feel that way today. But, the good news is..."it's not me" ...it's my freakin' hormones!

Hormones are my scapegoat. It's why I can justify eating a whole cheesecake, screaming at the husband or banging my head against the wall. Good to know that our monthly moments of dispair are normal...but how do some women hide it so well? I always seem to be in the insane one.

I don't understand how they hide it either....and it's been my secret curse my entire adult life...make it stop xoxo

Ahhh..... I am on the flip side of menopause. I started very early. I am really enjoying no periods, no cramps, no moodiness, no cravings, no mental moments, crying if some looks sideways .... ya' know what I mean!

I have traded all that for a few hot flash (the worst is behind me) and the night sweats that keep my heating bill very low.

I like menopause!
