Not My Mother's Menopause- Chapter Eight – A Grace Full Life
Before I forget (because MENOPAUSE), I wanted to share this Listening Test I discovered yesterday with you.
Satisfactory. Yeah, pretty much what I expected.
Given that I recently wrote a post on Monday about listening, I thought it would be a fun little share.
Side note- I had a little too much fun recording this week’s podcast.
I’ve been officially in menopause for a year and a half, and nothing much has changed except that I still don’t get a period and my hair is thinner.
Oh wait, I did get a period once. That was fun. Being a woman is such a blessing.
The handling of perimenopause and menopause in mainstream media continues to dissatisfy me. It’s as though every magazine and website editor says to their writers, “Did you know that there’s this thing called perimenopause that affects women anywhere from their 30s to their 50s? Maybe we should cover that?”
Recently, my post Did You Know There Are 34 Symptoms of Menopause was trending on my blog’s “Stuff You Like” feed, which made me smile because I saw an article online that same day about how there are 34 symptoms of perimenopause and someone was shocked by it.
WHY ARE WOMEN CONTINUALLY BEWILDERED BY PERIMENOPAUSE AND MENOPAUSE?
Oh wait, I already know the answer to that. I believe most females also know the answer.
So, in recognition of all of the shock and bewilderment that comes with losing our regular cycles, I chose to read my 34 Symptoms of Menopause post on the podcast this week.
If you aren’t a podcast listener, you can read about all of the symptoms here.
Here are some refreshing books that slipped through traditional publishers:
And this was just fun (thanks for the find, Katie):
Have you experienced perimenopause yet? Did you have any (or all) of the 34 symptoms?
