About Me

I have trouble coping with middle age

Never expected such change at this stage

My life’s in a rut

I’ve got no one, but

I hope I can overcome with each page (that I write)

I have difficulty articulating what I want to say and structuring a coherent blog. Thankfully, this is just for me – and the odd reader who may happen across my blog – so perfection isn’t required. This is just my way of talking to myself as I try to make sense of my life.

    I think your blog is great! And I love your humor. The constipation and penis posts were hysterical! Keep blogging!

    I happened on your blog through pinterest and your post about The Beauty of Fractals.. After enjoying every single last one of your beautiful photos I went on to read your other post and I thank you for making me feel as though I am not alone in this journey toward old age (ARGH!!) I am not dealing with it well either and your blog puts a funny twist on all the chaos going on inside me right now.. Thank you and keep writting

    I have to say I am inspired by your creativity and openness, I love reading your blogs. I am in a similar boat, trudging through life in a listless haze of hot flashes and bloat. Oh well, at least on here we all have someone we can identify with. Thank you for making me laugh.

    I came across your blog via Pinterest, of all things…first, really love your quilts and the fractals you’ve posted are beautiful!

    Know you’re not alone in the whole middle-age, what the heck is going on thing…long story short is that I moved recently and left a relatively good job and now find myself scrambling for money and questioning myself daily about what I’m doing in life and why.

    I appreciate your openess and willingness to put yourself out there!

    • Thank you, you are very sweet! I’m sorry you are struggling. I always thought that middle-age for women meant freedom from insecurities, wants and needs – finally. I was so naïve. And it seems as if it is so much harder to pick yourself up and start over again, there’s no longer a lifetime ahead of you to make things right. But of course, we can’t give up, we have to prove ourselves wrong. A little encouragement always helps.

    I have to agree with Monica. Keep up your awesomeness

  7. I just wanna say thank you. Lovelovelove this!!!!!

    Just found your blog. Love your quilts. I used to do so many things like make dolls, paint in oils, made gift baskets and so much more. It is a different life now that Menopause has hit fully since 2010. No one really understands unless they are going through it. I truly hate it. I do use some replacement bio hormones but no Estrogen other than vaginal. They do help but I still do not have the zest and excitement for life I once had. I pray for all women that go through this that one day we will find a cure…lol. I look forward to reading more of your blogs and hope you are doing well. Thanks.

    • Thank you. I never realized just what my mother, grandmother, aunts & every other middle-aged woman I’ve known in my life suffered through in silence. It truly is life-altering, and sad that there is not more compassion and understanding.

    I found you on pinterest but fell in love with the humor as you write it. Menopause is such a dreadful thing. The sweats, the emotional roller coaster ride,,,, all free of charge! lol. I would gladly pay if it meant getting off this ride. Lol. I also love your fractual art. I would really like to know how to do this art. It is so amazing and I want to put this design on my motorcycle. I feel different and want to show that on my bike. I have checked out the links you have provided but still feel at a loss. Can you please help point me in the right direction. I’m a 57 year old, menopausal, crazy, young at heart, single woman and feel the need to show my indifference to growing old. Thank you so very much for any help you can give me. Keep the laughter coming, because at least I know I’m not alone.

  10. Glad I stumbled in here! I would not be getting through this period (pun intended?) of my life if I didn’t have a sense of humor. Your menopause cartoons are wonderful! And I agree that your quilts are breathtaking as well. So I write a humor blog (I usually take one menopausal symptom and turn it inside out until it’s so distorted, it’s funny.) I even came up with a menopausal menu for a restaurant to serve…lol.
    Anyhow, thanks for providing such a great visual blog!

    This was an enjoyable find, thank you.

    Hi, I really appreciate your Menopausy games,
    Do you allow me to translate them in French and German ? Any copyright ? Just for friends and some hilarious patients…No intention to build up a commercial tower.

      So sorry! I’ve just found my password to this site – FINALLY! I do not own the copyrights to any of the drawings (done by someone else – I found them on google images – trouble if you try to profit), I only came up with the idea and created the board. It’s OK with me to translate & share with friends, etc. as long as there is no financial gain.

    Hi — can you please contact me? Would love to use your menopause mood detector cartoon in a book on menopause. Thanks! and thanks for a great site too!

    • Lucy Adams says:

      Phew! Found my password! It’s been a couple of years since I’ve been able to access this site. I don’t know what mood detector you mean(be more specific, where is it located?), but most of the cartoons are made by someone else (although I have made a few of my own), so you would have to contact them.
