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

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!

I have reached my fabulous 50s. Guess what, it’s okay. 20 years in the health and wellness industry. Educating men and women on the importance of nourishing their bodies with good food, moving with integrity, recharging their energy levels and empowering their minds. I love my job. A mother of two boys who are now men and my greatest achievement. A lover of words, an aspiring author with a book written and no idea where to go next, a poet who writes from the heart and her vulnerability. A foodie who loves to experiment, a salad lover , But not just your Every day salad, I throw in anything you can think of it ends up in my salad. I have a reputation for making the greatest weirdest salads around. As a total contradiction, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I rescue abandoned souls in the bodies of dogs, an animal lover, Who sometimes likes animals more than humans. My teacher in life, my mother never ceases to amaze me. I am one fortunate human being who is filled with gratitude for the life she lives.
