No, Dotsie. It varies. Everyone is different of course, but menopause lasts longer than that.
The changing goes on and on. I don't remember how long it took, now. But, I think I'm all changed. Sometimes I think maybe I'll change back now. But it's not so bad, except for the memory loss, the wrinkles, the constant peeing, and the mustache.
At least we can't get pregnant. Speaking of which, was that 57 year old woman who just had a baby nuts? How did that happen? The phone would ring and I'd put the kid down and forgot where I put him by the time I hung up the phone. Knowing what I know now though, I wouldn't take any crap from anyone in the PTA - not the teachers, the principal or anyone, even if they are nuns.
