Hey, Gen-Xers! Menopause Fairy here… Sure, there’s other crap happening, but what I really wanna know is this: how’re you handling ‘the change’? Yeah...I thought so. Here’s a few quotes pulled from a cool article by Amber Sparks on instyle.com. I may have an opinion (or two):
“What’s annoying and sad is how menopause is dismissed by many as just another thing we have to do, like grocery shopping.” (J. Chamberlain)
Reeeeally? Hot flashes, mood swings or short-term memory loss on our #@&?% shopping list?... I doubt it. And if so, that person better be shopping at a different freakin’ store than me.
“We’re becoming more discerning, not less relevant” (Carrie Esposito)
Yup. Just ask what's-his-face how discerning I've become. Jeez.
BUT, I gotta say, there’s one quote that gets it right:
“When I have a hot flash, I just tell myself I’m assuming my final dragon form.” (Helen Grant)
ROAR!!! (Cue the firebreathing.) Ahhhh… that felt good. Needed to get that out of my system.
