THE SWAMP GODDESS®GUIDE TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM AND AGING ANGST
Who has menopausal mayhem and aging angst? We do!
What's it all about:
This blog chronicles our journey through the murky waters of menopause and midlife, or as I have labeled it - 'the double milestone'®.
Like many of you, I am deep in double milestone frenzy. If you want, consider me your companion/professor/guide.
My career as a professor (teaching women's health, human sexuality & also nutrition for more than 25 years), therapist and seminar leader, as well as my personal experiences as an aging boomer, will be evident throughout the postings.
As a professor I can't help myself. I have arranged Midlife Memos as a course - an online version - covering topics of interest and relevance specifically suited for us.
And, yes, there will be homework.
The most important lesson - it's all about you.
A lot of attention is focused on the physical changes we experience at the double milestone. In fact, abundant information is readily available and regularly discussed among women.
However, we did not expect the psychosocial changes.
Probably, you have already noticed that, along with altering bodies and fluctuating moods, tolerance levels are sinking and attitudes are changing, most notably concerning relationships, i.e. with romantic partners, family, friends and, especially, with ourselves.
We have had virtually no information, discussions or preparation for this aspect of the double milestone. Consequently, many of us feel confused and isolated - until now.
Double milestone issues, as well as the Swamp Goddess lifestyle, will be the focus of Midlife Memos.
