I went to the doctor last week and I got a letter today and it goes like this: "Dear Mrs. McKeon: Your lab work from your last visit has come back and indicates the following: You do not have diabetes, Your thyroid function is normal and your FHS level shows that you have entered menopause.
Entered? My first thought was how long before I can exit? The good news is that now I know why I have sweat beads that pop out of my knee caps when I'm wearing jeans and when I stand up a look like my knees are weeping. But the bad news is that I have sweat beads popping out of my knees when I'm wearing jeans and you get the rest. And it makes me a little crazy. And it makes me a little anxious.
But . . . at least I know now where the insomnia, headaches, crazy person and freakish behavior comes from. And yes, I am blaming everything on the menopause.
