    I had a great memory, if not always for the most useful things (the LH and I weren't allowed to play on the same Trivial Pursuit team). Now I've resigned myself to having lost a step for good. It was more than frustrating at first, it was scary, even though I knew it wasn't Alzheimer's. I've not only made my peace with it now (15 years on), but I've figured out how to work around it: just be patient. If the missing info is something you know you used to know, relax, go on with whatever else you were talking about, and in a few minutes (well, sometimes a half hour) it will pop right into your head.

    One other charming symptom of menopause that I hope none of you have to deal with: breaking out. I did. I didn't break out a lot as a teenager, and I didn't break out a lot during menopause, but I didn't break out at all in between! I came to think of menopause as puberty in reverse.

    •  Puberty in reverse. Makes sense, oddly. (6+ / 0-)

      Yes, the synapses are still there, they just don't connect as quickly. Sigh.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.

        I understood why there's a Jeopardy Senior Tournament that differs from normal Jeopardy solely in that the contestants get more time to answer.
