So...would you be sad, happy, elated, or just plain stunned to find out that you, at the tender age of less than 45, were officially reaching middle age, "transitioning," "drying up" or whatever you want to call it.  I hate the word menopause and it just feels wrong.  But alas...it is what it is.

You don't have a "blah" option...

I was too stunned to think of "blah".  Maybe I should figure out how to add an option.

I need a "meh" option. ;-) I'm 42 and I've been experiencing some weirdness that makes me wonder. I guess I have mixed feelings.

;)  Well, I'm voting for "blah"...  I'm 41 and am waiting to just get it over with.  My sister started when she was 43, so I know it's coming...

I'd be bummed but only because I would be following the footsteps of all the females on my moms side needing a hysterectomy at around 40.

How about a bit of all of the above, or at least several of the above?

If it makes you feel any better, you're not alone... I'm 40 and I'm def. in the perimenopause stage...

If that happened I would be blown away since there is just a playground minus the equipment...but for some odd reason I am not in menopause early...instead I am just really hormonal- think teenage boy...but hubby isn't complaining lol! Still I know that I will likely have hot flashes before I am even 40- there is only so long that my body isn't going to clue in that something is now missing... ;p

I had mine two years ago at 32...it sucked.... but it early detection is one of the things I am forever grateful for...it runs in my family, too. hugs!
