FINALLY speaking out about menopause! Really?

I was happy to read that the Colorado's First Lady, Jeannie Ritter, was hosting a forum on menopause, but kind of chuckled when I read this, "Wouldn't it be great if we could get people talking about it and get it out on the table?" OMG, you mean she hasn't heard about MINNIE PAUZ®? LOL! Here's the key....women don't HEAR it until they're experiencing it! That means there's so much work to do to educate women on what to EXPECT as well as what to do when they're starting the process.

But why is there a $50 fee to attend the forum? The cost is $50 for three two-hour sessions covering symptoms of menopause, options for treatment, and how to protect your health. The sessions will be held at College Hill Library, 3705 West 112th Avenue, Westminster. Tacky! In this economy, I don't think women should be charged for this kind of thing. I would like to see how many actually pay to get information readily available on the internet!

    hahahaha!!! If they only knew--all they have to do is go to your site and they'll get a great education on the subject for FREE!!!!

  2. Not only is there your free site, but lots of really good BOOKS for way less as well. And blogs. Speaking as a 57 year old woman who's not missed a period yet.... RRRRRRR... I've been mighty grateful to sites like yours and books. Thanks for your work. Hey... when do we get "Dee-packaging: the Movie. Part II?"

  3. Hahahah Jeannette! I actually edited the video to include the second part. That was more of my practicing. :) Now I'm practicing having the camera on ME...OMG....not sure I can put my face up there!! I might just have to hold the camera on cartoons and talk in the background. Do you think that would work? :)
