I don't think anybody is trying to label her, but rather to offer one possible explanation for her emotions instead of just saying Dorinda's a bitch. If she came out and said that she struggled with x, y & z, then I could be more sympathetic for her, but as of now, she's just so mean and rude to people. She wasn't always this bad. Whether she's still mourning Richard, or having issues with alcohol, or possibly going through something medically, she seems to be getting worse. I don't know what her problem is, but she really needs some help.
Speaking of menopause, for some women it's hell; for others it's not so bad. I'm happy for those who breeze right through it! 😉
