Could it be.....

The M word?

I'm 94 days away from my 50th Birthday. 94 days. What that means is that I am not 50. So, could we please stop with the night sweating thing and the hormonal blues? I know, I know....I've only been experiencing it for 2 days now. But, it's seriously getting on my nerves. So, not only am I exhausted from this crazy heatwave that hit me the past two nights at 3 am, I'm this close to crying hysterically every twenty minutes and I'm pissed. That's right. I'm pissed. How dare this mid-life female malady hit me in the prime of my life! How dare it rip through my being without even a few warning signs that it was on it's way? I do not like to be caught off guard and I definitely don't want to deal with it right now. I'm busy. I'm young. And, damn it, I am pissed.

Words others used to describe me during this period in my life.
Angry. White. Bitch.
That just about sums me up!
I always think of the scene from Fried Green Tomatoes. Kathy Bates says to the young girls when they take her parking space.
"I'm older and have better insurance, get the fuck out of my way"
She then goes onto ram repeatedly into their car.
Best scene ever in a movie.

Oh, Judi girl. I wish I had some wonderful words of wisdom (or even a little hope) for you. But get ready girl, it's just startin' and you ain't seen nothin' yet! You can either get used to it right quick or just stayed pissed, 'cause it ain't goin' NOWHERE! But I'll be here to listen and commiserate.

Bummer, isn't it! My best suggestion is Emerita brand Natural Progesterone Cream. You can find it online. If you are interested in other natural remedies, let me know. And, no, I'm not selling anything. Just willing to share what has helped me. : )

Oh yes, just turned 49 this month. . . and wasn't it the movie "Broadcast News" ~ I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore????? Well, that's me too. Stinks doesn't it, purely stinks. Our own personal power surges. Turn off the power man.
