25 years......Road Bumps or Menopause?

When you have been with the same person for 26 years, sometimes you start to question......Why am I here?  I have to constantly remind my husband that I am still here, that I am a woman, that I have needs.  Women like romance, a gentle touch, a kind word, consideration, communication.  Why are we cut from two different molds?  I have been a hormonal mess lately, I know it could be that.  Or is it that at age 42, I just don't feel like I have to put up with anyones crap anymore?  It is kind of a good place to be, and not.  My whole life I have been trying to make sure everyone around me is happy, comfortable.  I have always put myself last, as most women do.  Who is going to make sure I am ok?  The only person who will is me.  So I am working on it.  It has been an emotional month, talking and discussing what I want, need and desire to be happy.  Weird thing, he agreed with everything I said....EVERYTHING.  He wants to work on our relationship as bad as I do.....but I am so exhausted from being the only one who tries to make sure everything is o k.  The ball is in his court.......I am going to focus on me.  Selfish?  Maybe........About Damn Time?  Probably...........Will this make our relationship stronger?  I hope so........I'm just tired.
