Who are we once the bleeding has stopped?
Yes, menopause is utter shit for many women BUT once we get through the shitty bit it can be wonderful and liberating.
Is that really true for all women?
Goodbye, nice, jolly, happy Caitlin. Hello, angry Caitlin
KST says in the memorable monologue, that menopause is the “most wonderful fucking thing in the world. And yes, your entire pelvic floor crumbles and you get fucking hot and no one cares. But then – you’re free! No longer a slave, no longer a machine with parts. You’re just a person, in business.” When Fleabag says she has been told the whole thing is horrendous, Scott Thomas’s character responds: “It is horrendous, but then it’s magnificent. Something to look forward to.”
