emoticon I thought our cycle was supposed to ease up as we got older? Dang, I'm so close to fifty I can smell it, and the pain seem to get worse!! I asked my Mom when did her cycle end, and she said 51! I can't wait 3 years!!!! I'm bout ready to choke the living Oo-Doo out of someone....anyone!!! But she said I may start easing up soon since I started so long ago! I was 10 when my cycle began and she was 14! So maybe.....I'm a hoping cause my disposition isn't healthy for those that aggravate me at this time!

emoticon I'm not so upbeat today...I'll be better tomorrow, or if these drugs I've taken ever take effect I may be better today! Ugh! It's horrible, I actually feel mean and it's like I know it but I can't help it. OK, now I know I'm crazy! Geez! Please, someone out there tell me I'm not the only person to feel like this! emoticon

    I stopped at 48 and had no idea what was going on at the time. (I never had any cramps). I cried, accused and thought of murder so many times I stopped counting. My husband thought I was losing my mind (I even thought I was going crazy, too)and told me I needed to go see somebody and I did. My doctor did a FSA test and told me that I was well into Menopause. I told him I can't be, that happens to women in their late 50's & 60's, I'm still young. "Boy, was I wrong!" So, Yvette, don't rush it. emoticon

    I loved your post. Sorry to be a spoiler about what might come next, but I stopped all that business about 10 years ago, and guess what, I still get cramps from time to time. Oh yeah, but now I have no regular cycle to expect them. They just start up at will. And I still have my own personal summers from time to time. My kind and gracious elders did not prepare me fully, so I am just doing a public service here. I guess there are some things we just can't leave behind. Your comment about feeling mean and not being able to help yourself struck a cord with me too. I have recently begun to announce to those who are around me when I am irritable and ornery. It helps to ease the tension - usually because people sneak away and leave me alone. Keep up the positive attitude! emoticon

    PMT I know it well, I tend to get ratty a few days before my cycle starts. I could gnaw the head of a Barbie doll when it's that time of the month. I started taking vitamin B complex and evening Primrose Oil in a vain attempt to ease my moodiness. I'm not sure if it's working yet. Hey hang in there, hope you feel better soon.

    I've had some of the worst cramps since I've gotten older than previously even on BCs. I learned last month that Pamparin does not work when even my legs are hurting. ALEVE works wonders and immediately!!! Hope you make it through without seriously hurting someone (smile).

    Thanks so much! I actually felt better after I wrote the blog and laughed at my self! Plus I think the drugs are kicking in! Oh but it was hard this morning, and I was not in the mood nor shape to do my new morning walk! Hell, it hurt to just roll out of the bed!! But I'm starting to feel better and will be walking on what I call my cigarette break (I don't smoke) and do a 15 minute walk at work!

    I love you guys!

    Oo-Doo....love it. Will have to remember that on. Hope you are better soon. You are not alone I assure you. Walk??? Are you kidding me??? LOL - BLAKELOVE might be right though....it might make you feel better. Good luck with all that.

    Seriously, I hope you are better soon.

    Ah, the joy of being a woman. Get out and go for a walk and get your endorphins going. It could help even though you don't feel like doing it.
