10 Reasons Why I Love Menopause

 
 Menopause is that tricky "change of life" time better known as the "sucky phase" in a woman's life that no one ever wants to talk about.   Sorry ladies, but menopause is a fact of life, and how you handle it is all in the attitude.  It's known as "the change of life," not the END of life, which means that it isn't ALL bad.  Look at it as an era of new freedom. Yes, you heard me right. There IS an upside to menopause, and I've come up with a list of 10 reasons why you should look forward to this challening-but-interesting time in your life.

1.  No More Periods:  You can swim with the sharks and not worry about becoming fish bait. You can also go camping in the mountains in Montana without fear of grizzly bears shredding your tent in search of raw meat.

2.  Weight Gain:  This can be great, but only if the extra weight is distributed in the right places.  If it goes to the breasts, you've got a built-in floating device to prevent drowning in a pool.  If it gives you a badonkadonk butt, you can sign up as a backup singer for a Beyonce music video.  But if the excess weight settles in your stomach, you're going to have to tell everyone it's an inoperable food tumor that you are forced to carry for the rest of your life.

3.  Hot Flashes:  Sporting a shiny, red face and sweat rings under your arms has its advantages.  It fools people into thinking you just had an invigorating session at the gym or in the bedroom.  Hot flashes also keep your heating bill down in the winter and help you sweat out those extra calories from the chocolate Nutty Buddy cone you scarfed down in your car at the gas station.

4.  Memory Loss:  It's sorta like early dementia.  It erases all those nasty movie reels from the past that you'd rather forget.  Like the night you puked spiked cranberry juice all over your white birthday party dress.  Or the time your husband thought it was a good idea to clear the dance floor at your best friend's wedding reception by doing The Worm in his tuxedo.

5.  Loss Of Libido:  You no longer have to feign headaches.  Just remind your spouse that your lady parts are as dry as tumbleweeds rolling across Death Valley and he'll leave you alone.

6.  Mood Swings:  You can be Freddy Krueger one minute or a Care Bear the next, and nobody will accuse you of being bipolar like they did in the car pick-up line at the elementary school when you were a hot mess mama in your thirties.

7.  No Longer Fertile:  You'll never have to worry about birth control again.  The money you save can then be invested in Viagra stock.

8.  Insomnia:  You get to add an extra 4 hours to your day since you'll only be sleeping for 3.  All those pesky items on your to-do list will be finished in no time.  But you're going to need some spackle in your makeup box to hide those duffel bags under your eyes.

9.  Dry Skin:  This is your excuse to go shopping and spend a fortune at the Lancome counter at the mall.  No one wants to look at a face that resembles an elephant's ass or a 10 year old Shar Pei.

10.  Fatigue:  Your body shifts into narcoleptic mode every day after lunch.  To combat the fatigue, you have an excuse to invest in a gold card membership to Starbucks or convince your boss you have a medical condition that requires a midday nap on the floor under your desk.  Be sure to carry a pillow with you at all times.

     Once you change your attitude, menopause isn't all that bad.  You just have to learn how to roll with the hot flashes, bloating and roller coaster mood swings.....and it wouldn't hurt to have a healthy stock of wine on hand at all times, just in case.....

    1. Hahaha you caught that, huh? It's different for each individual--some ladies are a bit more amorous after menopause because they no longer worry about birth control. This could be a good thing or a bad thing for the spouse, depending on his age....

    2. I'm not getting any. And trust me, it's a bad thing.

  2. I am all for the hot flashes when I get to this point, because seriously I am always cold. The only time I wasn't was when I was pregnant, so thinking that on the opposite spectrum is menopause and have this to most likely look forward to, lol!! :)

  6. When my mom was going through menopause her biggest symptom was #3. We'd be sitting somewhere and she'd be fine then the next second she was literally pouring sweat down her face and trying to open her blouse. I honestly had never seen her sweat one drop before then!

  11. Funny post, I just had a blood test at the gynos office and learned that at age 51, my hormones are working like a youngster's and menopause is nowhere in sight. This is good news because a year ago I kept my ovalries after a hysterectomy. I'm glad they are still doing their job keeping me normal crazy instead of 100% Loony Tunes.

  12. I don't know if I'm still perimenopause or menopause. But I've been "regular" my entire life and I just skipped a whole cycle! Then some cycles are closer together. But I can wake at 3 or 4 and be WIDE awake and ready to get up. Didn't know insomnia came with the package, lovely. Not hot flashes yet...as to memory loss, sadly I can't forget those nasty moments, but I can forget an appt in 2 seconds...

    1. Haha sounds like the start of it. I gave up on the insomnia awhile back--I just use the extra hours to blog and get caught up on things. The memory loss sucks---I have to carry a note pad with me everywhere I go now.

  23. The menopause sounds absolutely brilliant. See how a bad day can change things in the life of a woman. No more feeling bad whilst you splash the cash for larger clothes due to weight gain, and no more guilt after buying the most expensive moisturizers from the beauty counter. After all, you NOW need those things :) Women need not complain anymore and if I hear one word, I shall send them your way MM.

    I wonder what's in store for the men!

    Just loved all the great tips. Have a wonderful weekend.

  33. This post was hilarious! I esp. like the part about Death Valley vagina and face like an elephant's ass. And not having to worry about birth control anymore, but rather your partner not being able to get it up. Well, actually that one made me cry a bit. Because by the time I'll be ready for a relationship I'll no doubt be going through menopause. That is, if I can find someone to deal with me during this tulmultuous time. I cannot imagine being any more of a bitch than I am now.

    Is that true about the grizzly bears? Do they stay away from menopausal women? Is it because meno chicks are a thousand times fiercer than grizzly bears? :)

My parents of course had to tell me this story while I was a teenager hiking on the exact same trail the young girls were mauled on just years earlier.... I have never been so scared in my entire life as I was that night because I was on my damn period!!!! But yes, it is true--Grizzlies can smell the blood MILES away! Beware!!!

  68. LOL!! We really do have the weight of the world to bear, don't we? Why do the guys get it so easy? The only symptom I have not had is that insomnia problem... I would love to gain a few extra hours that I waste sleeping.

    1. I never thought of it that way, but yes, I'd probably be unhappy for missing out on a few hours if I fell asleep so easily. But then again, it would be nice to feel refreshed for a change, LOL!
