@Grivusangel -- I think sometimes, the consequences of a woman's behavior have to be defined for her, in order to make some people get help. My sister was like that. We pretty much had to tell her we would no longer associate with her until she got some help for her moods. Her doctor put her on a low dose of estrogen, some kind of mood stabilizer and insisted she have some therapy. It all helped.
I've already told my doctor I don't have a problem with HRT, and I'll be glad to use it. I have a great marriage and I don't want menopausal mood swings to mess it up. I'm just glad I don't have kids.
