My Menopause Blog: Cone of Silence

Carolyn seemed relieved. At the Breast of Canada calendar launch, I publicly announced my loss/lapse of mind, hair and eye sight as part of the peri-menopause experience.

Apparently, Carolyn was also becoming noun deficient.

Simple words gone.

Like 'mist'.

"Oh look honey, isn't the....um....wet, grey stuff pretty"?

I told the audience that I was entering yet another 'cone of silence' in women's health and blowing the lid off.

I got a cheer.

Funny you should mention zits. I've got a mountain forming on my left cheek. When she blows..it will be ugly.

And me with out any crack filler.

Sue,
the applause was well deserved. Silence is our worst enemy.
