Monica is back!

star-clipart-princess-wandI am sure glad that Monica is blogging again. Your blog was very inspiring, as I think we all feel that way. I constantly put pressure on myself, whether it is because I am talking a walk or because I want to finish one of my novels it can actually feel the same.

I can completely relate with your experience once you get “back home”.  I am a single parent of nonetheless, a teenager; need I say more? I think it is self-explanatory that teenagers can pretty much equal disaster as they themselves are hormonally imbalanced. The difference is however, that while my hormones may be out of whack I am still much older and wiser. My said teenager can be a bit much to handle, typical gifted child that thinks they know everything plus add that to her age and it’s a lot to handle especially for someone feeling like I do. I find myself enjoying a glass of wine most nights. Of course my teenager brought me an article on how drinking wine nightly is believed to be related to breast cancer in post menopausal women. I won that argument by explaining that I am in menopause not post it. 

That’s enough on the teen in my life. Regardless, I am still waiting for my doctor’s appointment. I should have called a year in advance. My appointment isn’t until mid June; turns out my doctor only works two days a week. Oh well, I am in no hurry to sit in a waiting room for an hour so that I can see the doctor for two minutes. Not to mention, the waiting room will be full of patients over 70 who have several complaints and have to shame to share their most intimate ailments. I just hope he can give me something that will help ease this transition.

  • Lovely to discover this site with so many wild and wonderful menopausal women and resources! UNfortunately most of your info is in the US and we don’t have all these resources in Australia, but we’re getting there! Slowly, slowly people are beginning to recognise the need for real attention to menopausal issues. And as for the men, don’t they realise yet that they are ‘changing’ too?!

    Many orthodox MDs are still giving menopausal women testosterone to boost their libido, when it’s the men whose testosterone might need a boost!

    Good days a-comin’! Hi from Australia!

    Hi from Canada,

    Thanks for all the honesty about your experiences as you go through menopause.

    I had to laugh about the “cougar” bit. I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad now that we are in the cougar years. Are we attractive to the younger men mainly because we can pay our own way? Huh?????

    Anyways, I’m happily married, so I don’t have to deal with this, but I am still curious, what’s the cougar thing all about??

    Does anyone have any answers?

    Yes I do have some theories. Men our age would not be caught dead with a woman their own age. Young men who have hit the dating circuit hard are tired of air heads find mature women of substance more interesting and attractive. I am married and my single often tell me they have dated young, medium and old and have chosen not to settle just to have a warm body next to them at night. And there is a very wise latin saying which goes something like this in English, …better alone than with bad company. So, in summary, finding a good man is difficult at any age, but not impossible. And if you can’t find someone who “gets you” and still loves you, don’t settle!
