Menopause is not a disease....

It's a LIFESTYLE! And I've got the button (or the shirt) that says so! :) I came up with this because so many women have asked me "when is it OVER with?" Well, I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, but you'd better get used to being CHANGED because you will be, forever.

Yes, you do get past the hot flashes and the mood swings. At least most women do, but we never go back to the way we were before menopause. Too many things have changed because of the level of estrogen being depleted.

I was watching Oprah the other day when Rosie O'Donnell was the guest and they were saying, "Why hasn't anybody TOLD us about what to expect (with menopause)?" Jeez, site has been online for over 10 years, where have you been?


  1. Yep! And I've been to your site many times in the past and learned A LOT while there! (iluvtolaff)

    You're so right that it is a lifestyle--I'll never be the same person, again, that I was but I really like who I am now--stronger, more independent than ever!

    Well, nobody ever told US about menopause either! It was always referred to as "the change" in hushed voices. But what's scary is that so much of the medical profession is still clueless about those of us in the "peri" stage. Our symptoms are myriad and confusing and frightening and there are only a few out there who "get it". My chiropractor is one and I find that I gravitate more toward holistic practitioners who understand that your body, mind and spirit are all connected. Glad I found this site. God bless!
