Menopause is very different than what I thought it would be. It, um… I grew up in a generation that, you know, that we barely talked about having your period. And our parents, and our, you know, the females in our family It was like, it was unspoken. It was. It made it sound like you had to go in a cave and live for the next twenty years. So it’s not that bad. I feel sexier. I do. I feel empowered. Sexually. Um. I don’t know. Did that sound weird? But, I do, I feel empowered. I feel like I’m comfortable in my skin. I feel like, um, I feel like my body is my own now. Even though there’s so many changes with perimenopause. But I feel like it’s mine. I feel like it’s a car that I know, like, every gear. And I can fly down a windy road and shift and not miss a beat. I’m 52 years old and I’m very proud of how I feel, and what I’ve accomplished and how Iook and I’m proud to be a woman that’s 52 and kicking ass.
