I'm told I'm to young for menopause unless it's early and I agree. I had one hot flash a few years back and believe me that was enough! I'm doing all I can to prolong menopause. (I'm 39)
I hate this and feel like my skin in crawling-
I hear so many women go on that they can't wait for menopause-I'm scared to death of it. I remember all to well the way my mom and my aunt were during this and I worry that my patience of job husband will go running scared, I'm scared of things like osteoporosis, the idea of no menstrual is NOT worth all else that goes along with it in my book.
I get weekly acupuncture for this any other reasons, but I want to prolong menopause as long as possible-
does anyone else have these fears?

I'm 46 and I'm guessing I've been in menopause about 2 years. I had a partial hysterectomy almost 9 years ago so the symptoms kind of crept up on me.
Fact #1. You WILL go through menopause! Sooner or later it is going to get you, so you will be much happier accepting it than fighting it. The only way you will cheat it, is if you die first and that's really not a better option.
Fact #2. There will be unpleasant symptoms that you will have to live with for a while. There are some things that you can do to help ease this stage of your life but you will never be symptom free until is passes. So again you will be much happier accepting this rather than fighting it.
I choose to celebrate this stage of my life but I'm still a woman, which means I have the inherent right to whine and bitch about it.

How come some my friends on Cafemom have a different layout on their page?
