I have also experienced this sudden intolerance of the "misogynistic microaggressions" I had simply shrugged and put up with most of my life. And last week, when I bumped my head hard on an overhanging shelf, then immediately proceeded to pinch my hand in a paint roller (??) I had a momentary outburst of rage that absolutely terrified my husband--so much so that he didn't bring it up for several days. Poor guy, haha! I hadn't considered either of those as hormonally based, but your words make sense.

I actually have a humorous (plus a little angry) rant about menopause ready to hit my own Substack tomorrow morning--Tuesday, Oct. 3. 'Tis the season, I guess. Thanks for the consistently great content here.

I’d definitely be interested in a monthly cohort!
