Men are from mars, and so are women *sigh*

Their definition of:


Pronunciation (men′ō-pawz)
  1. Permanent cessation of the menses due to ovarian failure; termination of the menstrual life.

My definition of Menopause:


life's last punch in the nuts [gonads] for women!

It has come to my attention we women share much more with our male counter parts than we suspected! I found this out while searching for a Menopause fix and trust me it really opened my eyes to a mans crotch.... I use to think about not having a period and how wonderful that would be, well I've changed my mind and I want it back.... Right! The phrases "I've have a visitor" or Aunt Flo is coming" used to be funny, but after Aunt Flo permanently left I have been having a rough time, so Aunt Flo get back here before I ignite!
I have suffered from hot flashes for years now, up until a few months or so ago, I could deal with them, that was until I got the super duper ones. I am so hurt by Mother Nature for playing this dirty trick on me. I sweat while I sleep, I sweat while I sit, I sweat while I lay buck naked in front of a fan.... WHY, I wanted to know, so I did a search for it on the internet.... and this is what I found.....
For one thing women have :

Female gonads: The female gonad, the ovary or "egg sac", is one of a pair of reproductive glands in women.

The ovaries are the main source of female hormones (estrogen and progesterone). These hormones control the development of female body characteristics, such as the breasts, body shape, and body hair. Temperatures.... Yep my heat flashes are because my freaking gonads are broken... and they say a pain in the ass is bad!
To read more about this go here....
If it wasn't bad enough someone tells me at age 49, I have gonads....

Menopause must be the curse of all curses! Men say we have it easy!

  • Irregular vaginal bleeding
  • Hot flashes & night sweats
  • Emotional and cognitive symptoms
  • Vaginal symptoms
  • Urinary symptoms
  • Other physical changes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cardiovascular disease
    What the heck. It also says this hot flash thing can last 10 years, someone send me some ice because I think I'm gonna blow!
Now, I know you males don't really want to read about this, But for us women its pure hell. I feel like all the crap a girl had to deal with , in the ends it's still a dirty trick to tell us we have gonads!
Please ladies if you're dealing with this, go read and educate yourselves. If you still have your Aunt Flo coming round for a visit, count your lucky stars!
As always I wish you all the best and:
Everyone NEEDS a little Sugar!

Makes me want to have it all removed. Blah. On the upside...I could say we women have balls and it would be completely true. :) Only, we got 'em on the inside. No 'grazin' for us smart gals!

Hope things get better.

Shinade said...

Well as an expert in this field...LOL...which you can verify. Because you have seen my manic crazy mood swings I would like to say bravo for putting it out there.

Just popping in to say hello and also that I have missed you.

Aww Judy... life is heck sometimes, but because you sound like you could use a holiday, I'll let you in on a fraccy secret. There's this new thing called manternity leave. You get to go on a paid holiday when you're sick of the men in your life.

Since gonads are supposed to be a man thing.. and you're definitley sick of your gonads, I think you should take a manternity leave. It seems logical to me... not that much of a stretch.

Go for it. With lots of sugar!
