Hello beautiful women! Iâ€™m going to share with you, over a period of weeks, a talk I gave at Jodi Baglienâ€™s Wellness Center. It is my hope youâ€™ll connect with some, or all, of the content. If you do, please let me know. If you donâ€™t, please let me know. This website exists to help women, and I need your feedback to do just that.
Week Oneâ€¦ The previewâ€¦
Ah, menopause. With 38 million baby-boomer women now in midlife or beyond, the subject of menopause is no longer one kept to hushed conversations over a second pitcher of margaritas and a platter of nachos. Unlike our mothers or grandmothers Boomer women, and those following in our paths, want to talk about what weâ€™re experiencing. Maybe we seek opportunities to complain a bit, or a lot depending on symptoms, and yet the real intention is to acknowledge where weâ€™re at in this age and time. We want to compare notes with our female friends and family to gauge our progress and to address our questions.
But what is menopause, really? How do we think about it in general, and how do we think about it when it happens to us? Those are often two very different things. There are an incredible number of layers, nuances, and mysteries that come with menopause and the years that follow. This series will discussâ€”and I mean that literally, letâ€™s share our stories and realities for the good of allâ€”three areas that relate to menopause: Identity changes, Body changes, and Creative resurgence.
See you next time!
