Complain to Mary!

Hey! This is where you can share your funny, crazy, wild, sad, pathetic menopause story! Yes, I’ve suffered all the symptoms Debbi Dickerson suffers in the novel! I’ve had inexplicable panic attacks. Hot flashes come and go. I often wake at night soaking wet. I think one of the most annoying things I deal with these days is my forgetfulness, and it gets embarrassing.

Like Debbi, I have put the milk in the cupboard. I walk into a room to get something, forget what it is, go back out, remember, go back in, forget, and then give it up! I will admit (oh, I hate to do this), but I got so engrossed in listening to an audiobook in the car while driving that I not only missed my exit to switch freeways, I drove nearly an hour past my exit before I noticed the signs and realized I was halfway to SF instead of going south on 101 toward LA. Sheesh, that really freaked me out! Yes, I blame menopause. Why not?

So tell me your story! And you don’t have to give your name!
