Argh!

I'm sitting on the couch right now dying one heart beat at a time, slowing bleeding to death. The phone is near by with 911 on speed dial. The broken left clicker on Dickidoo's laptop is the least of my worries. I must blog my final words.

Okay, maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but I am going through some major junk right now. I woke up never really quite fully waking up. Aunt Flo arrived last night and has been sucking the blood from my veins at an alarming rate. My heart is pounding to keep up with her demands. My head has been spinning for hours, and it might actually be enjoyable if I could keep the room from spinning with it. My arms and legs are as limp as spaghetti... cooked spaghetti. I feel like left overs from a Vampire buffet.

Actually what I'm suffering from is just pre-menopause coupled with an extra heavy menstrual cycle due to high stress levels. It sucks!

51 is the average age for menopause. That's just over 2 more years, or more importantly 25 more periods.... if I survive this one.

I need chocolate and Corona, lots of chocolate and Corona.

I agree with you. Chocolate and beer should work. :)

I'd say you're pretty lucky if you make it to 51. I distinctly remember being 48 (four years ago now) and being at my cousin's house north of Boston at Thanksgiving time. It was 20 degrees out and windy. I had such major hot flashes, I wound up out on the deck in a borrowed t-shirt the whole time we were visiting. And remember, I've been living in Florida for 27 years now....I USED to be cold all the time up there! LOL

Anyway, as my mom always says, "This too shall pass." Hopefully, QUICKLY!!

Take care, Dorn,
Carol

I used to tell my bus monitor that I could lay in the snow and melt it. I am 52 and my monthly friend is still here!

Jeezee..Dorn...I haven't been around since before December to read blogs..I sort of died and came "back" at New Years. I was peeking in to check that Gabe got back home alright, last I knew he was going back to Iraq and honestly honey did not expect the news about you and hubby. Sometimes as we get older our lives take a totally different turn than what we expected..we just have to set our minds on the positive aspects of your new adventure and grab hold of your life with gusto. I've walked in your shoes many years ago when my babies were young..so I know the emotions well. I know in the very bottom of my soul that he has made a mistake, for you are one dynamite dame my friend....wake up every morning and thank the universe for the day, think positive, good thoughts and the best things will happen for you...love Sandi
