Perimenopause and Menopause – Ladies Night

October 12, 2021

I no longer need these books and maybe YOU don’t need these books but my guess is that someone you know DOES.

In fact, I got a reality check recently from my oldest daughter and wished I’d kept them to pass along to her.

Once again, my infamous purge(s) come back to bite me in the hiney.

Although, there is something to be said for getting the books for yourself because you’ll more likely read them and pay (at least a little) more attention as you do.

All that to say, these two books are fab for women and men who love women in that certain time of life, or the time after.

Digression: I should have called this post, “Hot off the presses,” as I’m STILL dealing with HOT FLASHES. I make me laugh.

Yes, today’s books are about women … but men, please don’t go! (I say this because if there’s one thing I know, it’s that menopause vies with tampons to top the list of “Ten Things Men Will Avoid at All Costs.” Am I right, or am I right? I know, right?)

Did you ever see the YouTube video of men seeing tampons in unexpected places? It’s totally scripted, silly and also a riot. Obviously, men don’t actually squeal and jump on chairs to get away from a tampon. But I think many are perplexed and embarrassed to admit they just don’t get how women work. Videos like this one are amusing and for the most part, benign… but… I might as well accept that men won’t read this post. I guess it’s Ladies Night.

Reminds me of a story, of course (doesn’t everything?) about my late ex-husband and the therapist…

  1. One of my cancer treatments was a series if hormone shots to lower/virtually eliminate testosterone. This brought on male menopause so I can at least sympathize with the hot flashes, or as I called them, my own personal summer.”
