The Womans Room
Well I guess the price you pay for living social is you have no time for blogging.
But tonight is mine own and here I am, sitting at the computer, hoping I'm not going to write about what is on my mind.
But if I don't I might as well go take a bath.
So, if you're male or under what, 50, 55 years of age, you might as well walk on by.
( I don't know why I put those ages down. I went into menopause at 47) All women, of any age, keep reading.
Let's talk about sex baby.
And the aging process.
I've been a proponent of Prempro for some years now. It helps me sleep, takes away the crazies and the hot flashes.
Last year my gyno suggested I start taking it every other night. Fair enough.
Two weeks ago my doctor suggested every third night. This is when the wacky made a return appearance. Waking up to find I had stripped off my tshirt in the middle of the night.Rushing to the pharmacy to buy acne cream because suddenly my face is breaking out. Piling on sweaters at work because I have chills. Extreme exhaustion forcing me to lay down and try not to nap at odd hours of the day. 6:00PM nap? I don't think so. But I want one.
And sex? Been there, tried that. Ow.Ow. Ow.
Really? Men have Viagra and we have what, HRT, but not forever?
I have checked in with my girlfriends of certain ages, most happily married, happily having affairs, or both and they're like yeah, hurts. Get a prescription. One that probably your insurance won't cover or not too much of.
And my BFF wants to know why everyone says sex is so much better post menopausal.
So tell me, is there something we're missing?
Or are you thinking, wow, she's lost it now. Better go back to every other night.
I don't know if there is a whole world of blogging where this is discussed. If so, send me over.
If not, why not?
Anonymity could be your friend here, if you want to be heard but not seen.....just saying.
