The results are in for some recent laboratory work I had done.
Cholesterol 261 - Guess I need to just stick to the wine and omit the cheese.
LDL,HDL, Triglycerides - Better work on those as well.
FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) - normal range is from 1.8 to 22.5, depending on when the specimen is drawn. My level is 88.3, which falls in the range for post menopausal women.
So I guess it is official. Menopause has arrived in all it's glory. I feel fine, except for those annoying hot flashes. And a couple of people told me I was more crabby than usual. Me crabby? I told them to kiss my ass. What do they know.
No, I am going to look upon this as a good thing. Late for work? Sorry, I was feeling a little tired from menopause. Forgot an important event? Gee, I can't seem to remember anything now that I am in menopause. You saw me give you the finger? Oh, it must be that darn menopause, it just makes me so irritable. Another typo on the blog? Menopause. You were going to take that parking spot? Sorry, I'm in menopause and I deserve it more than you do because I am older and wiser. Piss off.
See, it's not so bad after all ladies. Now excuse me please, I have to go stand in front of the freezer.
