I Don't want to Hear it!!

Maizy digital girl on a bike

 Please ladies I do not want to hear how you breezed through menopause!! If by chance you did, puleeese keep it to yourself, otherwise I will believe your memory has been impeded!! Those of you who say child birth  doesn’t hurt should also stay mute, thank you very much!! I will never believe you either! Especially after twenty two hours of  hell and loss of dignity!!
 If by chance you were blessed not to have had cramps during those menstrual years!! Well you can zip it too!! Because while you breezed along picking flowers, and playing tennis and doing what ever else cramp-less women do once a month, I was writhing around on floor for two decades, from age nine to twenty nine, with  not even a prescription Tylenol  that could dull the ache!



 For the record I never want to hear another woman tell a young person exercise staves off cramps either! Any of us who walked our asses off as teens, played sports, rode bikes, swam and roller skated know that’s a pile of whooie!! Five generation of women in my family suffered with cramps I dare you to call us all liars!! We know “ WHY” they call it “THE CURSE!!

 You are not superior because you didn’t have cramps or menopause!!  God just has different pain in store for you!! All women should journal through menopause so they can accurately share with their younger  meno sisters what to expect!!  Women should also write down the real age their children were potty trained. Your child was never potty trained at twelve months old, if they were then you totally forgot that you had to throw out  your pissy smelling brown stained couch!!
 Empathy people, this world needs more empathy!! For crampy gals, menopausal mamas, and young moms raising babes  still in diapers at three…for heaven sakes lets get our facts straight!! If by chance our children were potty  trained a bit early, goodie for us, if we have one less (flush or flash whatever you want to call it) than our neighbor, or don’t wake up every night at three, or have never misplaced our keys, let’s not make others feel bad when they suffer!! Let’s work together to care!! You’re not better because you breezed through menopause, you’re lucky….but don’t rub it in!!!

 If you still like me after this post, then you either had bad cramps, a crappy labor, or can't find your keys!!

You are very funny! I had horrible cramps from age 11 (start) to 50 (end). Menopause wasn't as bad as some - but I think I have blocked out some of the moodiness! I can definitely empathize.

I had cramps, somewhat easy labor, but menopause kicked my ass!

Jez said...

Yeah! Been there, done that .....what a blessing old age can be in some respects.

Thank you Giggles for your really nice comments on my blog post, which I've just seen. And I forgot to say in my last comment that I love the lady on the bike and all your colour changes. Has she just stopped because she's realised she left the faucet on at home? Bikes are so hard to draw, but this one is really endearing. Love, Jez

Ah us women and all these sufferances, I haven't reached menopause but can well relate to child birth and cramps, heavy periods....I tend to go into another state and try and not fight the process, just flop and go with the flow, too tired at times to do anything or go anywhere. These women depict so well how we feel at times, still I love how we are all so cyclic just like the moon, there is something quite magical and wonderful about us!
I am just catching up with your previous posts, love your style and color play, such fun! Thanks so much for all your sweet comments, I love Mangos (favorite fruit) so your summer salad with mango dressing sounds delicious!
Take care,
hugs Kat. xx
