I believe Erica is totally fantastic woman. But I have been watching her since the begining of AMC, So that means that she is my age (55). I would think by now that Erica should be dealing with Menopause and all that it intails. I think watching her come to grips with the knowledge of knowing that she has reached middle age and losing that core part of being a women. Erica can be a real witch to start with and adding this aspect of life will take her to heights we have seen her at.
