From Perimenopause to Pomonapause

Posted by djafan on Sunday, March 7, 2010

The one year anniversary of my first David Archuleta concert is coming up on March 17th and it got me thinking back to the person I was before this life-altering experience.  So many things have changed, from being a lurker to now being an administrator on a fan site.  If anyone had told me what I’d be doing now, I’d have told them “You’re crazy!”  Nevertheless, it happened and it’s been a rough road to where I am now but I love the joy I feel.  You have to understand, I taught my kids never to be fans of celebrities.  I explained to them that celebrities are just people like us, so there was no reason to become a fan.  Yet here I was doing exactly the opposite of my teachings. I really didn’t know what was going on myself.  But I took comfort in the discovery that there were others like me online.  I was no longer alone on this journey.

Rewind to a year ago last November.  I started experiencing symptoms that were attributed to perimenopause, a hormonal imbalance.  The doctor suggested natural remedies like herbal teas and relaxation techniques.  These helped some but I’m used to being in control and these symptoms were wreaking havoc in my life.  The crazy thing I discovered was that listening to David’s voice, either speaking or singing, was the only thing that brought me a relief and a calmness that I still to this day don’t understand.  Every time I felt any symptoms coming on, I would run to the computer, click on YouTube and strap on the headsets.  Watching videos of David brought me instant relief but also weird looks from my family.  Adding to the problem was the harsh reality that, while bringing blessed relief, it was taking up my time to the point that utilities were being shut off.  Pay the water bill or listen to David?  Once, I actually  had to battle with the water company to get them to turn my water back on the same day.  I was just too preoccupied with my natural hormonal therapy to pay the bill.  Needless to say, this didn’t make me very popular at home either.

So naturally, when I found out that David was going to be in concert in Pomona, minutes from my home, I had to go.  The venue was a general admission moshpit.  I don’t do well in enclosed spaces or standing for hours which would surely only be made worse by the menopausal symptoms I was experiencing.  My family didn’t think it was a good idea, but I explained that it would HELP my symptoms and that maybe I wouldn’t spend so many hours on the computer.  Little did they or I know what was to come.  I never expected the change I would experience would go well beyond the “change of life.”  I listened to David all morning calming and preparing myself, or so I thought, for what was to come.  Is that even possible?  You decide as you read here some excerpts from a recap of my first ever David concert experience.

Where do I start? I can’t get this silly grin off my face with all these random thoughts of the Day I witnessed the most amazing and gifted singer /performer I’ve ever seen.  I waited over 9 hours to see him.  The first act not so good in my opinion, but I took the advice of dawn65, bliss and others to mosh.  So I braved it out and don’t have a single regret, I’d do it again in a heartbeat, but only for David.   Everybody needs to do this at least once.   Have I mentioned how absolutely gorgeous he is?  He glows, his aura envelops you.

His facial expressions, his smile draws you in, his eyes… his gaze is hypnotic.  His body, his movements are raw and electrifying.  I would never like him to choreograph his moves, he moves to the music so naturally and his hand movements, his hands, oh my, his hands, I’ve never seen hands like those.  He didn’t look tiny or thin to me, his outfit was perfect, (this is my pick for best outfit, he wears green well) he looks larger than life dancing and bouncing around the stage.  His energy is intense.
I had such a diverse group around me, women, men, teens and various ethnicities, I decided then that I was going to open myself to David and react to each and every moment.  I screamed, jumped, whistled, chanted, laughed, yelled out I love you David as loud as I could, these emotions just free flowed out of me.  I’ve listened to the YouTube and I almost fell out of my chair, I can hear myself doing all of the above and I don’t care, I’m past blushing.  At the end of Angels his eyes glistened, he looked out at the audience and touched his heart and said “Thank you” with such sincerity, I cried.  I feel so overwhelmed with all the emotions I felt.

Who talks like this?  My pre-concert self is barely recognizable from the person who wrote this recap from a year ago.  That person never would have expressed herself this way.  Many say my personality has changed and I agree that it has.  But I sometimes wonder if this was me all along and it took menopause and this young man to allow myself just to be me.  The good thing is that my symptoms have improved and when they do act up “David Archuleta, The Voice” takes care of them.  Now, what to do about this ODD that has taken over my life?   Guess I’ll just have to be a good girl and take my medicine.
