I'd Like to Know...

Exactly when does menopause become post-menopause?  I mean, if menopause starts when a woman has gone at least a year without menstruating, when does post-menopause begin?  The next day?  The next year?  When you no longer feel an overwhelming desire to kill your spouse?

If postpartum depression is triggered after having a child, can I still be suffering if my youngest is eight years old?  And what if I didn't actually give birth to the child?  I did have children, just not the ones I'm raising right now.  And I am depressed.  If it isn't postpartum depression, what can I call it?  And is it okay to treat it with alcohol?

Hide the knives and pass me the wine.
