July 5th 2016 – When author Sheila Wenborne hit 52 and started feeling as if she’d “been taken over by aliens“ – dizzy, constantly hot, depressed, fat and off sex – she was shocked when her GP told her it was all down to the menopause.
In this extract from her guide to surviving the change – So… That’s Why I’m Bonkers! – Sheila gives her insightful and often hilarious advice on how women can navigate their way through…
What is the menopause? The menopause is the end of fertility, when our ovaries stop producing an egg every four weeks. It may not make the most sophisticated dinner party conversation, but it’s definitely the big topic of discussion among women of a certain age, usually while fanning themselves.
“Oh, another hot flush, must be my age,” they say, dismissing the feeling they’d been set alight by a stray firework. But then it gets more serious. After three months of no sleep, anxiety attacks and palpitations, women begin to worry that it’s not the menopause – that they’re actually dying.
Feeling hot? Here’s how you survive those menacing menopause symptoms.
