Yech! Is That Me?: I?ve decided that mid-life is really the pits. There. I?ve said it. And to think that I spent much of my adulthood so far seriously doubting that there even was such a thing as a ?mid-life crisis?. Silly me. What is, exactly, the nature of the ?crisis?? I wonder. Personally I think it?s the crisis of suddenly realizing your life is half over and you?re stuck in a marital and personal rut with no end in sight. I think it?s taking stock of who you are and what you?ve become and saying ?yech! Is that me??
