I was wishing someone would start a thread where I could get some advice about menopause. It is more severe than I expected.

Wow good site, thank you.

Hard to imagine so many other women are going through this too. It is not just me.

Menopause reminds me of asking women what childbirh was like before my first baby. You know there is something they are not telling you about how bad it will or can be.

Hang in there Betty...mine was a tough one too. But once I got through it...life was more calm. The crazy hormonal stuff I had all my life finally stopped. Course...I also stopped dating and that had a lot to do with it I think. ;)

That is an excellent topic for discussion here.

I am running out of time this morning, as I have to head off to work ( in an extremely male-traditional profession ) but I'll check back here later to discuss.

Menopause does not need to be unhealthful or distressing.

In fact, for me, it has been the greatest gift ever!

It has been interesting reading everyone's thoughts so far.
I don't understand why the men felt they needed to be whiny and complaining......but their posts sure do stick out like a sore thumb!
I love the positive supportive energy. Women can work miracles when we are all working together. We are very strong and powerful. That is why tptb have worked so hard to keep us hating ourselves and each other.
Communication is the key.
If you look at any grassroots movement, it always has women at its core, keeping it strong and solid.

Thank you for that video, That was what I had in mind. But the string cord that we put in it was nylon and it bubbled up and turned into a marshmallow goo, then went out! I think it really matters what "wick" you use. We tried nylon rope, and strong bait string, neither worked.

This thread is a great way to embarrass women. What do you need to "support" each other for, are you weak or something? Do you see men on GLP or anywhere else declaring, "Let's all we men start a thread where we can support each other..."? No.
Admit the truth; the goal of this thread is to let the men know where the women are and get them to interact with you.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31026606

This is for the guys that keep popping in this thread:
Are you kidding? Seriously! Women do need the support of other women to put up with douchebag men in the world, that have nothing better to do than ask their women for a sammmich after having sex, and she didn't even get hers. That seriously pisses me off when a man begs for it, and he gets his, and then rolls off and falls asleep, and I am wondering WTF! or worse than that, he has the nerve to ask me to scratch his back. And I am thinking, "It was all about you in the first place wasn't it?" I would love for once in my life to find a man that is not self centered, egotistical, is a true nice guy, and not a douchebag. I would love if a man was as sensitive to the needs a woman like other women are, but I have never met one, not yet. I hate it when I hear other men say, "Women love to be bossed around." "Women love it when I make her feel like sh*t" This is truly stupid, no woman that I know, likes that at all. If I took a poll among women, about how many women would love to have a "nice guy" verses a "bad boy". I am thinking the majority would prefer a nice guy. That is my two cents...Sorry for the rant.

I have to be honest, my post about the sammich was just a funny...my man does ask for food after sex, but he always makes sure I "get mine" before I have to drag myself to the kitchen, lol.

I do not enjoy being bossed around, not at all. My man is the head of our house, just the way I want it, but mostly, I'm pretty spoiled, and not ashamed to admit it. I spoil him in my own way as well in the way I take care of him and our home. He enjoys spoiling me, but he is the authority in our home. We discuss major decisions, and my opinions matter, but he makes the bottom-line decisions. Thankfully, we agree on most things anyway, so it's not an issue.

Not to change the subject, but I thought I'd jump into the thread with my own issue that has always made me feel like I didn't belong no matter what group of women I was hanging out with.

I can't have children, and you would be surprised how many conversations that women of my age (early 50s) have about their kids, grand kids, etc. I feel so separate from other women. I can't tell you how many weddings, wedding showers and baby showers I had to go to last year for my friends' adult children. Nobody seems to understand how it feels when I go to all of these things, knowing that it will never be my turn to be the beaming mother of the bride or grandmother. I am a step grandmother to 3 lovely children, but they already have 2 sets of "real" grandparents and I am not really treated like anyone that counts for anything.

Sorry for that long post. I just had to vent a little after the holidays, I guess. Thanks for listening. hf

 Quoting: AlkaliDesert


HRT is one of those things that may help some people some times.

But there is NO reason to consider menopause itself as some sort of disease that requires "treatment".

Menopause is the cessation of a function, not the advent of anything new.

Over the years I have both read and observed that most, but not all, menopausal symptoms are proportionate the percentile of body fat a woman carries. Less body fat generally equals more comfortable menopause.

Running and muscle-building/ toning excercise are excellent to help to prevent or diminish symptoms.

Also, the eating of traditional soy-based foods such as tofu provide the body with phytoestrogens that maintain a natural and healthy hormonal balance.

Personally I am a great believer in DHEA supplements. They provide the body with the building blocks for hormonal precursers, so the body can manufacture what it needs. The is much different from taking full fledged hormones. If men take DHEA, their body makes the male hormones that are good for them. If we take DHEA, our female body makes the hormones that we need. That is definitely not the same as HRT, thrusting full-fledged hormones into the body.

All in all, I feel incredibly better post-menopause than I ever(!) while having periods!!! Not at all prone to being at the mercy of my emotions, and infinitely calmer and more intensely rational.

Post-menopause feels like I have fully "grown up", and stepped beyond the emotional turmoil of younger life.

I am looking for a mom figure for me and my boys hf My own mother never has had anything to do with me and my boys. After my sister had her first kid, she said she didn't need any other grand kids. We passed my mother in Walmart one day and I stopped to say hello, and after we went about our way, my boys asked me "Who is that woman mom?" I had to confess that was my mother. They were confused, that they never knew her. After my grandma died. I felt a huge emptiness because she was my mother figure. When my oldest son gets married and settles down, and has kids, I will spoil the crap out of them. I believe all kids deserve love.

Has anyone done anything unusual?

I saw a falling star the other night.

I saw a gay guy in a pink buttkini with a matching tank top and hat and purse.
Today I saw him and he had really short shorts with a sort of eyelet lace trim on the bottom.

Today a whale rose right in front of the boat.

Re: Let's start a GLP women's group thread.. support, advice, etc. Post here please
Not to change the subject, but I thought I'd jump into the thread with my own issue that has always made me feel like I didn't belong no matter what group of women I was hanging out with.

I can't have children, and you would be surprised how many conversations that women of my age (early 50s) have about their kids, grand kids, etc. I feel so separate from other women. I can't tell you how many weddings, wedding showers and baby showers I had to go to last year for my friends' adult children. Nobody seems to understand how it feels when I go to all of these things, knowing that it will never be my turn to be the beaming mother of the bride or grandmother. I am a step grandmother to 3 lovely children, but they already have 2 sets of "real" grandparents and I am not really treated like anyone that counts for anything.

Sorry for that long post. I just had to vent a little after the holidays, I guess. Thanks for listening. hf

There was someone in one of the Christmas giveaway threads that was looking for a mother figure and for herself and her kids. You guys need each other! But I have no idea which of the 3 threads it was in now and there are too many pages of each, but maybe she will see this! Sending you some hugs in the mean time :)

I am looking for a mom figure for me and my boys hf My own mother never has had anything to do with me and my boys. After my sister had her first kid, she said she didn't need any other grand kids. We passed my mother in Walmart one day and I stopped to say hello, and after we went about our way, my boys asked me "Who is that woman mom?" I had to confess that was my mother. They were confused, that they never knew her. After my grandma died. I felt a huge emptiness because she was my mother figure. When my oldest son gets married and settles down, and has kids, I will spoil the crap out of them. I believe all kids deserve love.

It's much harder to be a liberal than a conservative. Why?
Because it is easier to give someone the finger than a helping hand.
