I had a funny pre-menopausal moment today that some of my readers might relate to... After my swim, I stopped in to Tops hoping to get chicken backs for the pup. Since I try to track my blood pressure, I stopped by the pharmacy to do that. While I was sitting with my arm in the cuff, I noticed that Always maxi pads were being discontinued and were half price. My goal has been to avoid stock-piling, but I hate paying full price for feminine protection and as a result decided to buy two packages.
My periods are still showing up, mostly on schedule -- and I am going to be 51 in a week and a half. Sometimes I question if I need a serious stockpile of these supplies because who knows for how long I'll need the stuff? Anyway, I was carrying the packages in my hands to the self-checkout because I had meat in my basket and didn't want those items together. In the past, I would have been a little sheepish about prancing around with femmie products for all to see. Then I thought, well, it would make me look younger. I mean, how many 50-something menopausal women walk through the supermarket with an armload of sanitary pads? I was feeling a little bit foxy about that. Hey, I don't look like an old lady! Then I realized people would just as soon think I was buying them for my teenaged daughter. So once again, I wasn't feeling so great about menstruating. Hey, at least I got a good deal?
