Now I understand the joke about how many menopausal women does it takes to screw in a light bulb?


Does anyone out there in mid-life land relate to any of these things:

I can’t seem to figure out this hormonal stuff. I took some “natural” progesterone, but I ran out out it and keep forgetting to get more.  

I get my period every 3-4 weeks even though I’m  53.  

I sleep 5-6 hours per night.  

I just checked a peri-menopause symptom list which apparently was tailor-made for me.  

Today, I just got back from making a bank deposit and had filled out the wrong deposit slips and totaled incorrectly.  

I drove out to my doctor’s office to pick up a prescription. Was talking on the phone to a friend, and continued driving the wrong way for 5 miles. Turned around and got to the doctor’s office and remembered they said they would mail it.

Left my keys in the car at Costco.  Rummaged through my purse for 15 minutes—they were sitting in the seat.  Only good thing was the car was unlocked (another thing I forgot to do).

I get psycho angry every time my cell phone vibrates with a new call.  

My husband wants more passion and my libido is lethargic.

Is “CLAUSTROPHIC” a symptom?

Where’s a bubble bath when you need it?  

Come to think of, I’d just settle for the Calgon commercial.

    • I’m sure we can all relate to your story.

      I woke up early to make it to the store to buy milk so kids can have their stupid cereal, parked my car, went in, the cell rang  I continued walking & talking and searching through the aisles, bought stuff that I didn’t need, packed the trunk and came home.

      Walked into the kitchen to see 4 of them standing around looking at me....

      The only thing that I could come up with that Ralph’s dairy shipment was late this morning......

      No one believed this b.s.

    • A middle-aged woman seemed sheepish as she visited her gynecologist.

      “Come now,” coaxed the doctor,

      ” you’ve been seeing me for years! There’s nothing you can’t tell me.”

      “This one’s kind of strange...”

      “Let me be the judge of that,” the doctor replied.

      “Well,” she said, “yesterday I went to the bathroom in the morning and heard a plink-plink-plink in the toilet and when I looked down, the water was full of pennies.”

      LOL...sorry girls...couldn’t help myself...corny I know...

      LOL...sorry girls...couldn’t help myself...corny I know....  :)
      “I see.”

      “That afternoon I went to the bathroom again and, plink-plink-plink, there were nickels in the bowl.”
      “That night,” she went on, “I went again, Plink-plink-plink, and there were dimes and this morning there were

      “You’ve got to tell me what’s wrong with me!,” she implored, I’m scared out of my wits!”

      The gynecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder.
      “There, there, it’s nothing to be scared about.”

      Ready for this?

      (I’m warning you.....)

      The gynecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder,

      “There, there, it’s nothing to be scared about.”

      "You're simply going through the change."
