How To Handle The Dreaded "M" Word - Menopause.

How did I get here?  When did I reach this point in my life?  For Christ sake, I am still finding myself!  LOL.  I have finally heard the dreaded word - menopause- from my doctor.  I wanted to spit in her face and scream at the top of my lungs,  "WHY!!"

Years ago, I watched my own mother through this horrible time.  It was like watching the movie "Exorcist" and "Carrie" combined.  I remember feeling sad for her and saying that I would never get here.  Okay, you stupid, stupid girl!

My Christmas Gifts To My Husband!

So with the holidays coming, my friends are scrambling to buy their husbands presents.  I watch the anxiety all over their faces and I just sit back and watch.
