    It means "it's all history now baby" to me. I went through it, had the most miserable time of my life, and now things are back to normal. I never had hot flashes, never had any of that stuff except the mid-life crazies. Had to go on Prozac for a long while. Breezed through the rest of it without incident.

    You dog.

    Did you find the Prozac helpful? and if so what dose were you given.My doctor has offered them to me but i am worried about side affects.

    Yes, they were very helpful p! I can't remember what the dosage was, I know they started me out low and went up until I felt better, so it wasn't a very high dosage. I felt no side effects other than I couldn't cry about anything if I had wanted to. A damper was put on the strong emotions. No crying, no screaming or shouting.
