Avert your eyes boys this is not for you.
As women we talk about everything, EVERYTHING, well everything but this. Here goes.
The change. The menopause. The peri-menopause.
Told you boys now off you go.
From your late 30 things can go a bit awry, irregular either non-stop rivers of Babylon
Or once in a blue moon.
Sleeping goes to pot – my personal nadir and a thousand other symptoms can kick in. Hot flushes, mood swings, low sex drive, weight gain are a few of dozens of symptoms
So you got to the Dr. and they smirk and go ‘ och it’s just the peri-menopause’
JUST! Now hang on a minute sunshine…there is no ‘JUST’ about it.
And whilst we’re at it what is the ‘peri-menopause’ anyway?
So with this in mind, the confusion, ignorance, lack of support I have
just completed a Radio Program called Medical Matters which will be broadcast
on the BBC Scotland this Wednesday _ repeated on Sunday – but you will get it on iplayer if you miss it.
Fascinating stuff. I talk to herbalist Dee Atkinson, a GP, a specialist Dr. Heather Currie and some women who have been there, got the t-shirt and survived the general hell of the whole thing.
It may be something you know all about. If so then you are in the minority.
If, like me & producer Debbie McPhail you have 10000 questions about the whole thing then tune in. I can promise you lots of interesting facts, figures and information – and even a couple of laughs.
As ever the girls talking helps. It really does.
So this Wednesday BBC Scotland 3.30pm Help is at hand. Or more accurately ear.
