Not Quite 50 & Fabulous....

Perhaps this goes here? I'm 49 and feeling less than fabulous, but that may just be circumstantial (it could be boredom or missing aspects of my previous life). I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 18 months, and counting. Ours is a long story, and it began when we were 15. I'll save that for another post though. Needless to say we are in the best relationship we've ever been in (he'll agree with me on that one). I live 883 miles away from my previous life and have been here just over 3 years, I'm a full time homemaker (no jobs in my field in our area). My husband was isolated by his previous wife and so we are slowing gaining friends.
Recently I was given the early diagnosis of being in menopause, (can't have a blood test for 6 months per the Dr.). I was being treated for adenomyosis, had three cycles as per the medication one 16 days after the last medicated one and then nothing. Was told not to worry about being pregnant,or getting pregnant, the ultrasound tech confirmed that I was not pregnant (needed the ultrasound to check the uterine lining again - don't have the results back yet).
So here I sit, going through this rollercoaster of different symptoms without knowing what to expect or what the duration of this "fun" is, and finding reliable information is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've seen the Menopause Oasis and the information there is great! Very helpful thank you ladies. The "plan" right now is to go through this naturally, using only supplements, vitamins and diet - unless I get BSC (Bat Sh*t Crazy).
My doctor told me I'll get through this (all women do), and that it's temporary - okay great temporary as in a few months or temporary as in 20 years?
I guess I just want to whine a little... Thanks ladies.
