Not My Mother's Menopause- Chapter Eight – A Grace Full Life
When I asked a friend a few months back whether she’d gotten pubic hair yet, she stared at me as if I’d farted. After that, she never talked to me again. I suppose it means she HAD gotten hair down there.
Why is it wrong to ask my friend in private about hair growing on her vagina if we just watched a movie about vaginas in public? After seeing “the movie”, I felt like it was okay to talk about it. But I guess outside of “the movie” it isn’t okay, it’s shameful.
Each of my chapters begins with a story from my past that relates to the topic of the chapter. I’ll share those with you all because it’s only a fragment, but the rest of the chapter would take up too much room here.
My objective is to get my book into the hands of as many people as possible. As a result, the book’s text is now available at the top of the blog each week. There is a drop down option where it says Menopause at the top, and if you click on it, you will be able to read each chapter of the book in print. Each week, a new chapter will be posted.
This week, I’m going through the fundamentals of perimenopause, including what it is and isn’t, as well as where you can get additional information, misconceptions, and answers to the questions I presented in chapter one.
I noted on the episode that my book has an Appendix with a list of reliable websites for getting medical information. Instead of making you wait until the end of the book, I’m providing you with that link now.
