Yikes! I just realized I am one! How about you?

You have all heard those commercials on TV and the radio saying....for post menopausal women? I was bopping along today...sorta singin' a happy tune...when one of these ads came on the radio. And I'm humming...half listening, half not. Then I heard it....for post menopausal women. It was one of those sort of out there kind of moments and then WHAM! I thought...holey moley...that's me!

OK...it's surgical menopause...I was getting near 'that age' anyway. But post menopausal? I never thought of myself like that before. And now it's me! That definition fits. Post menopausal!

Have you ever had a moment like this? When all of a sudden those ads for athletes foot powder, bladder control pads....something like that just came up and smacked you along side the head? It took me over a year to 'hear' that ad.

Kaatie, everytime I'm in the doc's office and pick up a magazine and see a picture of Lauren Hutton (she advertises for hrt) and she talks about hot flashes, etc I realize that I've been there, done that, bought the book

Hi Kaatie:

Had to laugh at this thread. I was taken aback when my dr described me as POST-menopausal -- what, that was it?? Did anyone get the number of that express train?

Take care, all.

POST-MENOPAUSAL? I WISH,

FUNNY YOU SHOULD BRING THIS UP, I TO SEE THE ADDS FOR THIS AND IT MAKES ME SO SAD, THAT I WILL NEVER GET TO DO THAT LIKE WE WERE MENT TO. ITS LIKE WE WERE TAKEN AWAY THAT RIGHT. I SAY NO FAIR. AND DID ANY BODY HEAR KATHY LEE GIFORD, ON I THINK E, OR ONE OF THOSE SHOWES. TALK ABOUT WHAT A HARD TIME SHE IS HAVING SORRY IF I SOUND HARSH BUT. THEY CAN'T BEGIN TO EVEN KNOW WHAT BEING FORCED, ALL THE WAY TO TOTAL MENOPAUSAL. NO PRE, NO POST JUST RIP ROARING MENOP. NO FAIR.

TALK ABOUT BIG BABY, JUST A LITTLE VENTING,

I haven't really thought about this "post-menapause" yet, but it is getting closer, I still have my ovaries, but I'm 44 so I can't be too far off....but I do get a laugh when watching soaps at lunch and see commercials on tampons!

My favorite

My favorite thing that's happened since I realized I am 'post' was watching the Grammy awards the other night. Lil Kim, Mya, Pink & Christina Aguilara singing "Lady Marmalade" and then Patti LaBelle came out to sing with them and blew those young girls out of the water! I mean, they are all really good - but she was incredible. Well, the next commercial was Patti for HRT!!!! I absolutely loved it! Just when I was starting to feel sorry for myself - almost 3 months post-TAH/BSO and my boobs are shrinking - and here's this incredible woman doing more than those little 20 somethings! Okay, I'm 43, and i know I couldn't keep up with them, but it was pretty amazing.
