Hey girl, I think you should consider writing a "shades of" some color related to menopause. Pretty intense - makes me looking forward to it - well maybe not. Keep up the positive/humerous attitude, it will def help you through this as well as your wonderful family. im me anytime! When you are feeling up to it I will drive out to do lunch!

Love you kiddo! Koren XXX


Thanks Koren!! I'd love to start working on my novel again -- haven't touched it in 10 years. But yes, now that I'm older and have more life experiences, who know what I might come up with!

Hello sweet Dawn, it's hard to believe that two weeks have gone by since your surgery. I think of you often and am really glad to read that (other than this menopause "thing"!) you are healing and recovering well. I don't have the time to read a lot of blogs from people, but I am sure glad I found the time to read yours today. You are a brave, strong woman and it helps those (like me) who have not yet gone through menopause and are scared to death put their mind more at ease to read your beautifully written words. Sending all of my love from down south, your sister and friend,



Thanks for the love Mon! <3


I had an Oophorectomy at 35. I am now almost 45 and still suffering and dealing with menopause/hormonal issues. I am on HRT and have been since the surgery. My symptoms are simply too severe NOT to be on the therapy. As of now I'm using the .75 mg. Vivelle patch, changed twice weekly. I haven't slept through the night for more than four years. It's gotten worse in the past couple of years... I awake every 2-4 hours like clockwork. I'm having a sleep study done tomorrow night and am hoping that it will reveal SOMETHING new that the myriad of doctors I've seen haven't been able to unearth. Your description of menopause was very powerful... and very accurate. I hope you are doing well!
