Midlife Crisis's the deal.
I get this daily e-mail that talks about women's health....and if the main topic is something that seems interesting...I might take a gander at the e-mail...otherwise, it's one of those things that goes into my "delete" file!!
One thing that caught my eye a couple of weeks ago was
"could your weight be affecting your knees"?
How could they have even known that I was having such a problem with my knee???
Could my weight be the problem?
Could all this excessive baggage be taking a toll on my poor pitiful knee?

Then...over the weekend I get one that talks about having a "midlife crisis"?
Here are some of the things that they say can trigger women having a midlife crisis:

Children leaving home
(yep....when Jess got married 8 years took me a good 18 months to get over it!!)
Death of a loved one
(lost my Dad 15 years ago, dad-in-law 14 years a year ago)
Care giving for older relatives
(haven't gotten there yet...but I see how it's affecting my Mom taking care of my Mamaw)

Loss of a job or approaching retirement
(well....if you know me well, you already know my status on this one)

Signs of declining physical health
(this leads me back to the knee)
You know what?
These e-mails are probably supposed to be helpful....helpful information wise, I mean....instead they only helped in adding to my blue mood
(I don't think I've gotten an e-mail about "depression" yet).'s one thing I've decided that will help my midlife crisis....

Whatta 'ya think?
