Attempting to capture light hearted take on Menopause

*

*

Please excuse me

I need to fan myself

I feel so goddam hot

But where is my fan, I need it now

it seems where i put it, I FORGOT

*

Oh dear, I think my pants have shrunk in the wash

my goodness they feel so tight

a salad a day is all i eat

I am still so bloated despite

*

My stress in high

my libido is low

my belly and chin hairs

continue to grow and grow

*

i look in the mirror

Just as I feared

I resemble my 80 year old mother

I now own 3 chin hairs, it’s my very own a beard

*

I no longer ovulate

My eggs have up and flown

My periods are heavy

I have low progesterone

*

My estrogen is low

My lady bits are dry

Having sex is painful

I try to not to cry

*

i get so weepy

I’m always sleepy

my family say I’m bitchy

My skin is itchy

*

Who are these kids

Mine?

Ive forgotten their names

John

Joe, Jesse

Jimmy

oops I mean oh its James

*

Why is this happening

what is the cause

My doctor says you are normal Dear

it is “ONLY” menopause

*

*

YES it is normal. It is the natural advancement in a woman’s life.

*

Do you have to experience and live with the symptoms of menopause

*

No!
