If Shakespeare Waxed Menopausal

Post  BC Williams on Fri Apr 06 2012, 16:13


Oh would that I began again as a rose in summer's breeze,
a tauten bud in beauteous pose, a festal aire at peace.
Tis not for me to wish, as age hath born a hoary curse
that taketh all reprise a scurrying and with hell hath coerced.

Slumbering mind in deepest night, all thoughts be within stilled;
then yea!, a molten mist encamps and soaks my bed and brow!
I rise in haste to seize cool breath from 'neath my soaked shroud
and think it must be death - it must!, but knowest I'm but maligned.

Then midday, whilst others lounge in Zephyr's comfortable balm,
dew creepeth neath my bosom's sag and mislay my inner calm.
Oh scarlet red my face blusheth - my skin doth grow flames of fire -
I dare not think I'll last a sec, yet as leave another hour!

group hug

Girls, we gotta stick together on this. It's in EVERY woman's future and we have to learn to deal with it. Three days ago, I began cleaning up my act. I gave up sugar, starch (breads), and dairy products. I can't begin to tell you how much better I feel. I've lost 3 or 4 lbs, but I'm beginning to see a fresh beginning in mind, body, and spirit.

I'll be sharing my new regimen with you here in a few days. I'm SO excited!

high 5 Congratulations! What do you think about a private women's forum? I've been mauling it around. We had one in the past that was super. NO boys allowed . . .

I'm there as well, but thanks to my "anti-wackey" meds, I'm not fighting with myself nor my evil twin.
I'm gonna have to try that Bev, but with having low blood sugar, I don't know if it would be good....I'll have to ask the Doc.

I remember the GIRLS ONLY GROUP, it was a BLAST, talking about the guys and them wondering just what we were talking about.....he he he

I'm hypoglycemic, but haven't had ANY problems at all. Matter a fact, I'm pressed to even be hungry. You can't believe all of done today Dori. I haven't had this much energy for . . . well, at least a couple years . . . going for a bath before the kids get here:-)
