I had an incident last month during which I lost a great deal of blood; very unusual. After running some blood tests my doctor informed me that I’m entering menopause. I’m 43. At any rate that would explain a lot. Guys, it may be funny or a way to vent when you talk about women PMS-ing, but stop for a minute and imagine what it must be like to go month after month bleeding and experiencing mood swings that truly suck to have to deal with.
I’ll be glad when this crap is over with. For now I’m struggling with a lot of emotions, some that are hard to define and others that are obvious. Ladies, how do you deal with the mood swings? I’m usually fairly good natured and calm, but it seems like lately I’m inexplicably angry more and more often.
Right now I’m working 40+ hours a week and taking a double load at school so I can graduate this June, so I know that has a lot to do with it. With that being said, my husband often practically has a target on his back. I know my hormones are shooting all over the place right now, but I really don’t want to go through the next who know how long before things get better.
All of us have good and bad characteristics, and I hate being angry at him for things that are, in the end, nothing that is ever going to change. I think when it comes down to it I miss our daughter (she moved out of state and is doing well) and this house just feels so quiet without her.
Maybe I’m having a mid-life crisis. I should go check out convertables or something.
