My friends and I often speak of the stages of this part of life.

How did you get through really depressed days?
I wouldn't blame menopause on any depression I suffered. I did and do get depressed from time to time and deal with it by talking to friends, going to therapy, going on an anti-depressant once for a year, and making positive changes in my life.

Did you become more sexually wild?
I became less inhibited and more orgasmic, yes. I am always capable of wildness but I got more confident as I got older and freer to give myself permission to experiment. I don't think it was hormonal as much as the confidence that comes with knowledge, wisdom and self-respect. And facing one's fears!
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
