Menopause is not a pause…
[Written by a Man]
Menopause is a proper pain and bloody inconvenient change in the life of a woman. It’s a little unfair that a mature woman just when she is reaching her prime in so many ways has the hormonal carpet pull out from under her.
Right when career prospects are the greatest.
Right when the demands of motherhood are changing to allow more independence.
Right when the greatest understanding of self and self-worth are aligning in a woman’s universe.
Wham … Menopause! Why …. It’s enough to make you cranky!
Of course hiding the realities of Menopause (hot flashes, memory burps, emotional swings, etc.) is preferred to broadcasting the message to family, friends and colleagues. Yep, denial was the old and natural response to Menopause.
