I think the big “mid-life crisis” has finally found its way to me or the other way around. I just noticed that I get hot-headed most of the times these days. There are days I am bright like a supernova and there are days when my mood is pitch black.

People who know me too well, know for a fact that I am a very positive and chirpy person. I am non-stop talker, a loud laugher and just a plain jane who have a zest for life. However, I just feel very irritable lately for little things which the “normal” me will never, ever do on regular days. I don’t understand how I feel sometimes. I just go with the flow.

Aside from the erratic moods and feeling-lousy-as-ever days, my body and mind seem to agree. I am getting bigger, my weight is not budging, my white hair is taking over my black hair, I don’t feel like looking at myself in the mirror and of lately, I hate combing my hair! What the hey?!? Have I gone cuckoo? Dear me… Is this perimenopause?

For those of you who have been through this “passage” in your life, how was it? Did you also experience the terrible mood swings? How did you go about it?
