Jack Gets Me

So.  Been a while.

I am in that funky ass place where I barely even boot up my computer.  I think my issue with my hormones is effecting me more than I would like to admit.

I am post menopausal, hence my name Woman on Pause.  I have been without my HRT now for around 3 weeks.  Long story, but I felt better for a bit and thought maybe it was a good thing.  Will go to the doctor when I am able, but that will be a week or two.
So for now, it is what it is.

I have found some things that I just can’t deal with now that I am off my hormones.

  1. I have horrible anxiety.
  2. High Blood Pressure.  Like 140/111 high.
  3. I have horrible anxiety.
  4. I forgot how much anxiety sucks.

That is about it.  My heart is almost always racing, see above aforementioned anxiety, and I feel like I could jump out of my skin at any moment.   My bones will jump out and leave a cartoonish skin shell of me with an open zipper in a pile.

So, I know that this post has just been full of fun and awesomeness and you are walking away from it going, “Wow, that was AMAZZZZZZING.”

Ok, not really.  But I wanted to check in.  I am ok.  Just in a weird place.

I am going to let Jack take it away.  This is literally (<— mean that) the way I feel.

Here’s to hoping it passes soon.

I was reading the Daily News, which I do manically all day.  One of my 4 go to sites when I am on my phone and find time to browse.

I ran across this story about Vladamir Putin.

‘It’s a cat – from the rear’ – Russian President Putin

And it shows this picture Putin had drawn for a classroom of Middle School kids during a visit.

Putin on the Ritz

  • When I first looked at this before even reading the title or what it was about, I thought, what a crude drawing of a vagina.


  • Please o please tell me I am not the only one to see this.


  • If not, I may very well have to call a therapist, a voodoo priestess or whatever will help me not see the vagina.


  • Lord help me, I have been off my hormones now for 8 days and I think it is effecting my brain.


  • That is all for today, because really what else could possibly be said.


  • BTW, I named that picture, “Putin on the Ritz.”  And giggled for WAY longer than I should have.  Then found this.  And continued the giggles again for probably an inappropriate amount of time.
