Tropical Moments and Other Joys of Menopause

Mache has written a song to boost our menopausal spirits. Download the song and sing along:

RED HOT MAMA

Iím a red hot mama from my head to my feet

Sassy and brassy, sexy and sweet

Come a little closer (psssst), feel my heat

Yes Iím a red hot mama.† I like to exercise

Toning up my tummy, shaping my thighs

Men still lookiní at me; and I look at guys

(Chorus)

Iím good at conversation and Iím very good in bed

I know Iíve got some wrinkles but I still can turn a head

Iím through with makiní babies, now Iím makiní love instead

Just because Iím in the ďPauseĒ doesnít mean Iím dead, Ďcause Iím aÖ

Red hot mama who likes the company of men

Though now I drink my tonic with a splash of estrogen

I may be getting older, but Iím wiser now than then

(Repeat Chorus)

Iím a red hot mama, from my head to my feet

Sassy and brassy, sexy and sweet

Come a little closer (psssst), feel my heat

Red hot, red hot mama, Iím a red hot, red hot mama…..

Oh to add, also having sex, no worrys of pregnancy, well what about vaginismus? You dry out, no matter what lube u use, this is a big problem, penetration is very painful, in fact excruciating. Im glad im not with a partner now. and this is all along with thw wrinkles, the crepeness on ya arms, your bingo wings. Im sorry but im a perfectionist and i have always looked gud and wanted to keep looking gud but it just pisses me off that i think the guys got the better deal. nx time i pass this way i wanna be a man .

I dont think theres one good thing about meopause, its not great, its a sign that your getting older and thats it. U start getting aches and pains u never had, your more at risk of cancer and heart attacks,. You go thru a traumatic time, your not in control, and you wonder whats happening to your body and mind. Its awful and horrible, well for me and i bet theres lots of women out there the same,. Sum women are lucky and sail thru it. I havent yet. Im 56 now.Its got slightly better but, every now and then something seems to change ,u have moments ,i mean a week or so where u feel and look diffrent.Its hard to explain. You cant go jetting off and doing all that stuff , what the above says, thats was what u shudda dun when u were younger and thats my opinion. We aint wonderwoman anymore.

Thankyou for this, my herbal remedies are not working at all,I bought them for the hot sweats,which seem to have arrived with a vengence.like it says,going into the cold e.g.in the snow,makes them worse,triggers them too.
Im post menopause & have finally quit stimulants like smoking,alcohol,too much caffeine &keep getting the desire to do yoga.Im only 42,but it really does feel like time for a calm spell.Some sleep would help,so hopefully meditation will be the bit Ive missed!

I had a cat that would do something similar but with the sound of an emery board. Every time I would…

Naoma, why say anything if that is how you feel although I feel the same way about the human species…
