A Hormonal Meltdown

Originally Published on


By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Easily displeased
Quick to be disappointed
Crushed by weight gain and calcium depletion
Sagging breasts and a pear shaped figure
Aching bones and aching patella
Stretch marks and varicose veins
Inadequate and solemn answers to questions
Sometimes too critical or aggressive
And a hormonal meltdown….


Keen intelligence yet detached humour
Mid age crisis; searching for eternal love
Zero tolerance to bull shit and attitude
Or laughing at herself
Sometimes a stranger even to herself
Hot flushes; fluctuating blood pressure
Progression from heels to flats…Occasionally
Missing a step while climbing or walking
And a hormonal meltdown….


Superior knowledge; experienced, affectionate,
Queer, funny yet tender and understanding by default
Echoing silences and self-castrations
Occasionally crossing over the line
As they inch towards reaching their prime
A cranky child; trapped in her skin fighting
A losing battle against age spots and wrinkles
They’re in menopause state of mind
Facing a hormonal meltdown….

Graphic designer, Educationist and a MAD MAD PRIMITIVE person. CHALLENGE is my game. RISK is my passion. PERFECTION is my habit. HARD WORK is my occupation. SMARTNESS is my style. FRANKNESS is my policy. CONFIDENCE is my power. Passionate & Optimist.

An avid animal lover and a nature worshipper as well as being an army BRAT(Born Raised And Transferred) and Army Officer’s wife I have had the golden opportunity denied to many(and mine by birth)… to have covered the length and breadth of India, and seeing it in its splendour. My life has been enriched by my seven furry buddies who with their unconditional love have always been a de-stressing factor of my life teaching me to value and love all HIS creations unconditionally.
