    Default Whoopi Goldberg gone mad with menopause

    The menopause has driven Oscar-winning actress Whoopi Goldberg completely mad.

    The Color Purple star, who celebrated her 50th birthday in November (05), insists she doesn't know if she's coming or going since 'the change' overtook her body, and never realised how it would alter her sense of femininity.

    She says, "I am haywire! I'm up, down, hot, cold, I'm all over the place. My sex drive has totally changed. One minute I'm like, 'Yeah! I can't wait for it." The next I'm saying, 'Oh God, go away.'

    "And my moods are completely erratic. I could cuss you out for two weeks, then send you a Hallmark card to say I'm sorry. All of a sudden I don't mind saying to people, 'You know what? Get out of my life. You're not right for me.'

    "It's wonderful and liberating. "(But) the menopause can be hard to deal with because it really is a shock when it hits you.

    "There's no countdown. It's just boom. "All those years bitching about my period and when it stopped, I was stunned to realise how much my womanhood was tied into it. It hits you hard."

    Damn, Whoopi is younger than me by 6 months. I was thinking she's a lot older than me, further into the change therefore feeling worse than I do. I never minded having a monthly cycle and I don't mind not having one. After a year without a cycle I won't have to worry about getting pregnant.

    Wow that's kind of funny. I'm 27 and I have always been just the way she describes. Of course I'm bipolar, but I think that will make menopause easier lol.

    Also, I think the symptoms (for lack of a better word) decrease as you get older. Your moods become more stable. At least, that's what a bipolar friend back home told me...

    Preach it Whoopi!

    Unfortunately she is correct about menopause. But there is something freeing about not having to blow chunks of money on feminine care products every month. Hot flashes are great in the winter because you never need a coat outside.

    Nope, I've got the power of Hot Flashes! Might as well harness them for good.

    For the first time in my always-shivering life, I am actually HOT. The problem is, I often feel very cold after the hot flushes. And then there's the night sweats, the morning sweats, the perspiration running down my back sweats....Oh, did I mention lack of sleep, always feeling exhausted, and NO libido? I'm in my third year, cold turkey, after experimenting with HRT and the patch and various creams and homeopathic remedies. I hope it gets better soon. But I'm not counting on it.

    I'd rather have my periods back at this point because I rarely suffered any kind of symptoms until the long perimenopause, which lasted about six years, before the actual menopause! Oh joy!
