Dear menopause body ………

Dear menopause body ………

Dear Me, Hey body……WTF!! Please tell me the jokes over…..I mean whats going on? I can’t keep up with you just now. Hot then shivery. Happy, manic then depressed and suicidal. I feel I have no control over you any more…..It’s scary, daunting and hopeless…. I feel exhausted, invisible and completely dis-connected to who i used to be but maybe I just can’t remember who I used to be because of my shocking memory. Oh the irony that what I do remember is that I once had a libido, zest for life, mojo and a waist! Ha flipping ha! Let’s not even talk about the hair situation! I’m surprised I’m not bald with the amount of hair that comes out in the shower, my bikini line is heading down towards my knees and what’s with the thick, black chin hairs! *cue witchy cackle* My muffin top has turned into a blancmange, my oestrogen depleted boobs resemble naan breads and my skin is dry EVERYWHERE. Oh yes while we’re here let’s talk about my once juicy mucous membranes (vagina, anus, eyes, nose and digestive system) now feel like the Sahara desert. Even if I felt so much as a spark of desire it involves so much effort to get warmed up that ….CBA (can’t be arsed). I only have to look at food and it seems to stick to my ass by osmosis. The time in my life when i need every bit energy so I can exercise and look after myself Mother Funking Nature has decided to drain every last bit  from me …….please tell me this is all...
BMS – British Menopause Society survey results

BMS – British Menopause Society survey results

Today the British Menopause Society released the results of a survey it conducted revealing that three quarters of women say that the menopause caused them to change their lives and over half say it had a negative impact, highlighting the greater support needed for women experiencing the menopause in the UK. Alongside almost half of women surveyed experiencing symptoms such as hot flushes (46%), night sweats (37%) and low levels of energy (37%), the survey also highlighted that women experienced other less talked about symptoms including increased urinary frequency or urgency (33%), sleeping problems/insomnia (33%), joint aches (32%) and vaginal dryness (24%). Despite these symptoms, a third of the women who were experiencing or who have experienced the menopause, hadn’t tried anything to reduce or prevent their symptoms. In addition: Over half (51%) of women also said that the menopause had affected their sex lives. Furthermore, over a third (34%) said that they were less active since experiencing the menopause and a further third (32%) said they no longer felt like good company. To note, almost half (45%) of women, felt their menopause symptoms have had a negative impact on their work. My dear Sisters, Those results aren’t much of a surprise right? If you’re reading this then I assume you are experiencing some symptoms of the hormonal flux? Reading these results urge me forward to continue my mission to helping women not only ‘manage’ their symptoms but feel happier, healthier and full of self confidence than they ever have before. “Despite the average female life expectancy in the UK being 83 years, and many women living in the post-menopausal...

What happens after menopause?

What happens after menopause?

You’ve been riding the waves of menopause. You probably feel like you’ve been hit by a Tsunami? You haven’t been able to keep up with your Jekyll and Hyde personality, your expanding waist and the hot/cold sweats. You’ve been hanging on by a thread. Desperate for some reprieve. And then…. your periods stop! You may or may not continue with symptoms….. That depends on many things…. If only there was a Menopause Manual (maybe i should write one…oh hang on I am ;-0) Now you have had a year period free (whoop!) and you are now officially post menopause….even though you were post menopause when your last period finished! That’s it …. No fanfare No telegram from the queen. No one will notice…..it all feels a little undramatic 🙁 Done, Done, Done! Right? Maybe……Maybe not! At the age of 45 I am 7 years post menopause. Now that’s a mind F@@k in it’s self! The menopause transition is a little like childbirth. I sometimes forget how bad it was. Being the other side of ‘it’ I can say that going through the menopause early has been an ‘awakening’. Yes I’m aware how cheeeeeesy that sounds. But it’s true…..I feel like a different women. hell I AM a different women. In this video I share how brilliant it is being the ‘other...

They called me FAT!

So in the space of 24 hours two professionals suggested that i lose weight 🙁 I’ve got a mild prolapse and the extra weight is adding pressure to my pelvic floor. Meh! It is thought that one in two women have some sort of prolapse. It’s much more common post menopause because of the changing hormones. (if you think this may be you please don’t waste time getting it looked into) My womens health physio suggested that i lose the visceral fat I’ve got around my belly and my internal organs….. Then my GP asked me how much weight i’ve put on since my early menopause…. They didn’t call me fat but that’s how my brain interpreted it lol i put on around 2 stone four years ago and I ‘had’ found some peace with my curvier shape. What with that and my ongoing digestive issues which cause pain and bloating that resembles being five months pregnant I was feeling a little dejected 🙁 So last week I embarked on playing with a new eating plan mainly to focus on my digestion which i was hoping would address the extra weight. I duly logged my foods and symptoms. Looked at new recipes. Joined the Facebook group. Became a little obsessed. ……and then wanted to eat ALL THE FOOD……my cravings returned….my old ‘disordered food’ obsessions were triggered and I was in full on DIET MODE. ARGH!!! Noooooooo. I felt deprived, miserable and a failure as I was eating foods not on the plan. So yesterday I paused, stepped back and looked at the bigger picture. What was really going on?...
