I seem to be entering that wonderful time in a young (ish) woman's life when marvellous and mysterious changes are happening to my body.
Hot flashes and other things we don't need to discuss. And, y'know? It's another point along the way where I feel slightly had.
I thought that once you got through puberty, that that was it. Your life was set and it would mostly be more of the same till you die. Ha!
I also bought into the whole "Once you're through your twenties, life just gets easier and less confusing." Double ha! But that's a whole post in itself.
But back to the menopause. For the first round of marvellous and mysterious changes, we had Health Class.
Shouldn't the same thing be available for the middle-aged?
Women could come with their life partners. I think we'd all be a bit jealous of the lesbian couples - they'd be so supportive of each other.
Those of us dragging men-folk along would find ourselves abandoned at the door. The guys would sit in the back row, giggling and punching each other. Occasionally, a chorus of "Ewwwww!!!" would be heard....
What? Your grade-school health class wasn't like that?
Mine was. Mine totally was. On second thought, maybe I'll just go get a book.
