menopause is like being 14 again
Actually it is less so than I had feared--with all the exercise I am doing I don't notice mood swings. But today I had a flood--I left my office to go teach my class and found I had blood stains running down the front of my pants legs. And I was wearing olive green pants. I had a sweater and a t shirt in my office, but no pants or shorts. If the problem had been in the back I might have tied a sweater around my waist, but I couldn't think of any way to make myself presentable with what I had.
I made a quick decision about a documentary I could show part of, went and asked my teaching assistants to start the class and show the documentary, and ran to my car and went home and changed. I got to class only 15 minutes late. I'm never going to be without a change of pants in my office again.
The medical solution to this problem sounds awfully drastic--I'm hoping I can just outwait it.
