MENOPAUSE OUT LOUD!
Have you heard about this? If not, it is fantastic! On Friday night I went to the funniest musical I have ever been to in a very long time. It is called "Menopause Out Loud". Four women sang and danced their way on stage singing oldies from days gone by, but the words were changed to address the "change" that women go through. It was so funny. I have not laughed like that in a long time.
There were songs about hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, memory loss ..... and all that go along with the change of life. As I sat in the audience having my own hot flash and wanting to pee from laughter.. I truly felt a kindred spirit with the woman next to me having her own private summer and bathroom issues. It was wonderful knowing that I was not alone and that the woman 2 rows down had memory issues and problems with her eye sight. I took comfort in the fact that the girlfriend several rows back also was laughing/ crying because she too had many sagging parts. Mine more than hers but all the same I took comfort that there were many women going through what I was going through. It was just a fun time and I recommend this outing to any one whether you are going through the change yet or not. Cuz one day you will be there and you will understand. Go See it.
