Educating Jose

If you’ve been following this blog you know that I’m 48-years-old, married to a 35-year-old man and have left the metropolitan city of Toronto in Ontario, Canada for the small town of Pearl Lagoon in Nicaragua, Central America.  You also know that I’m going through menopause…at least, I think I am.

When Will You Reach Menopause?

This is a reprint from a WebMD Feature that was written by Gina Shaw and reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD. I’ve left the links intact.

The Crying Game

My adventures with menopause continues.

Of the 34 symptoms of menopause I’ve now experienced four of them including: breast pain, hot flashes, body odour change, smell sensitivity. The latest symptom is mood swings.

The Fear is Real

My husband Jose asks the best questions. As I’m fanning myself and saying “Whoo, hot flash!” he looks at me innocently and asks, “What is a hot flash?”

What’s that smell?

My husband Jose, yes we got married in July 2012, complains that I’m rude to him. There apparently have been times when I’ve told him that he stinks and needs to go take a shower. He would not complain. He would go bathe with bath gel but I’d still tell him he smells. So he’d go back and bathe …

Peaking Sexually

A couple of year ago I celebrated my 45th birthday and nervously waited for my libido to kiss me on the cheek, look tearfully into my eyes and say a heartbreaking, final good-bye. I’m happy to report that that didn’t happen. In fact what did happen, albeit a few days after my birthday, was some of the best toe-curling, expletives …
