Did you notice that there can be a lot of irritation and ANGER that comes on during Menopause?
Seemingly innocent people become victims of our skewed points of view.
Everyone seems to have turned into incompetent fools, almost overnight! No matter which way you turn people are in your way, don’t know how to drive to save their lives, or just say the stupidest things! Did someone come by with a crop duster during the night and anonymously spray the world with stupid dust? What kind of sick joke is this anyway? Does anyone have or use common sense anymore?
My experience with anger has been a scary one! I could be calm and relaxed one minute and the next thing you know I would be off on some tirade of comments, judgments and expletives (mostly said out loud but often times thought of in my head) that sent people fleeing for their safety, or seriously questioning my sanity. My anger could quickly escalate into rage and even fury. I would sort of witness myself becoming some sort of savage out of control beast with no “off” button. And if that wasn’t bad enough, when I would finally come down off my high horse and back to my senses I would crash into a sea of emotions and remorse. It’s as if there are raging hormone changes on the inside as well as rage “at” people on the outside. Not a good combo.
