Visiting my board this morning and trying to figure out the new format, so decided to start here as an example....lol

It has been soooo many years since I went through the change that all I remember is that I was in my mid 40s, so I would not consider that as "old"! I actually sailed through it with very little discomfort, an the word "PMS" had not been invented yet, to my knowledge. I was divorced, busy working in my cleaning business, and had little or no time for health complaints of any sort.  I didn't have a need for any medications to handle menopause, thank heaven for that! I hear some really terrifying tales from others about how dreadful it can be!

My sex life was non-existant, as I didn't have time for the opposite sex, and by the time I did get into a relationship, I was well beyond the major throws of menopause..
