It’s like your choices have been taken away, even if you weren’t going to chose them, but still. I suspect I’m not too far behind as I turn 39 +1 this year 😉 I have always admired your writing and how you deal with the challenges you face. I have no words of wisdom for this, sorry. But I am here for you if you need me

Am wondering whether my inertia/fog/depression over last year has been linked!

Once you accept how things are for you, you can find ways to work with it rather than against it. Nature will have her way! Life is always full of changes and never finished anayway – like you’re not finished just because you’re entering menopause! There will be new and fascinating facets of it still to experience. 🙂 All the best. x

I guess brain fog could have been a symptom but I think my brain is like that anyway. No hot flushes although if I did get hot in the gym it seemed to take a little longer to cool down. We are all different so definitely don’t overthink it, treat it like treating your babies teething, it’s going to happen anyway, relieve the discomfort as best you can, remember it’s a phase that will pass.

I’ve been trying to be extra kind to myself, focussing on good quality food and plenty of fresh air and exercise. Have been reading Wisdom of Menopause by Christiane Northrup, love it, none of the negativity found in many books on this topic.

Thank you.

I’d been on one of the progesterone only pills which suppressed my cycle and having stopped taking them in March I’ve not had a period. My mother was in her early 40s and my younger sister went through about 2-3 years ago.

I’ve no symptoms except the erratic periods, which is why I was somewhat taken aback. The not knowing what’s going on its somewhat stressful. Will add tissues to my bag, and maybe stick in some wet wipes too.
