This is #4 of our special free daily Boss of Me series for 10 days to help you take action around some common midlife challenges.
Today we got us a doozy. My hormones are driving me crazy. How about you?
I can remember a few years ago, sitting in the doctor’s office of Kaiser’s OBGYN dept, waiting on my yearly checkup. The walls were posted with flyers for pregnancy and STD prevention. Nothing at all about menopause.
I made a mental note to ask my doctor. She arrived about 20 minutes late, looking frazzled and exhausted. I didn’t ask her about menopause education. I made mental note #2 to look at Kaiser's website for patient education classes when I got home. When I went on line, there was NOTHING about menopause.
Now, it could have just been my timing, and maybe now Kaiser has a flood of classes for patients about menopause. And I’m not singling Kaiser out - I haven't done a survey of other providers. I would point out that if the healthcare juggernaut that is Kaiser isn't making it a priority, its a sad proxy for society in general.
I’m not a medical professional and nothing I say is meant to be medical advice.
I am a woman going through menopause with a brain in her head and a bias toward action.
Common sense tells us that eating well and making stress management a priority can help. We don't go through menopause in a vacuum. Your life situation has a lot of influence on how you experience menopause.
