I’m a woman. At least once a month, for a few short days, I absolutely loathe, abhor, hate my life. My mother told me when I was a teenager, “It will get better with time. The pain won’t be as bad the older you get.”. I love you but guess what mom… You lied. Lol. Okay. I promise I won’t tell my daughters this untruth. For me, each year brings a new, deepened level of pain. I’m looking forward to menopause. Grrr.
