Now with extra Bershon

My gynie doc is the greatest. She is the woman that you can just tell was the smartest AND prettiest in her high school class. Two words: blonde ringlets. That's what I am talking about.

We were discussing the menopause situation. Crap.

Sb: I went three months without a period and then I had one.
Cute Doc: Was it a normal period?
Sb: Yeah.
Cute Doc: Do you have hot flashes and night sweats?
Sb: Yeah, some. Not so bad.
Cute Doc: Do you feel like you have PMS all the time?
Sb: CHA! Totally.
I sounded like a 14-year old. She laughed.
Cute Doc: You're the first person who has been honest about that all week!
Sb: Why lie? I feel like killing people all the time. It has become standard practice to save emails for 10 minutes before I send them out so I don't say something stupid and wreck my career.
Cute Doc: That's brilliant.
Sb: I know, I know. I'll send you my bill.

Oh sister, i pray for you that it doesn't get any worse.

Because if you throw lack of sleep into that mix (from overwhelming hot flashes every 20 minutes) you will become a horrible beast.

Ask me how i know this.

I have these problems and I am not going through menopause. Your tips are always appreciated.

Swistle said...

No, YOU'RE the smartest and prettiest, and also the funniest.

Gigi said...

Yeah, see, I don't miss the periods, it's my sanity that I kinda miss.

I haven't had a period in 8 years (woo-hoo!), but I can't blame the temper on menopause, either. Gotta find some other excuse....

You're too young for menopause aren't you?

I remember when my mom went through, she had hot flashes so bad her glasses would fog up. she'd get so frustrated about it she'd get the giggles!

I started a medication once that gave me hot flashes until my system was used to it... I do NOT envy you that crap!

Dang, not fun.

Your doctor sounds McDreamy. Could you get her number for me?

Wait, on second thought, I don't know if I could date a gyn. I can be a tad bit jealous and would always be wondering who was in her stirrups now.

It won't last long if you are related to me. Just about a year. Thanks to all the good genes we got.

As my menopausal friend Carol said about us, "We used to be nice."

Sister Wolf said...

Wanting to kill people?? I've been going through menopause MY WHOLE LIFE!

I don't think menopause is making me crankier than normal, but my metabolism has slowed to the point of near non-existence. I can't decide if I want to fight the weight gain or just surrender to it and sit on my couch eating pizza.

I shudder to think how much shorter my fuse will get in the next 10 years.
