Not My Mother's Menopause- Chapter Eight – A Grace Full Life
First, I came across this post a few days ago:
Which has nothing to do with this topic or menopause, but I’m having fun with it and plan to use one of the prompts (what three things am I most looking forward to this week) every week at the start of my podcast, and I thought it would encourage you as well.

This week, I’m sharing an important chapter from the book. I discuss my own mental health concerns during perimenopause, as well as how women and perimenopause have been viewed historically.
It’s not good.
First and foremost, I want to share the essay that sparked my book-writing process, Pause by Mary Ruefle. If you haven’t read it previously, please do so. In my humble opinion, it is one of the most essential pieces of menopausal writing on the internet.

As always, the complete text of the chapter may be found at the top of the blog under the Menopause menu, or by clicking here.
Here are some important links I would like to share with you:
