I found this article and wanted to share...http://www.bridgewater.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/The-Menopause-what-to-expect-when-you-are-expecting-the-menopause.pdf
Full of good information and resources...Interesting, from my web searches I am finding that more seems to have been done about menopause from a government and public policy standpoint in the UK than US. Sadly, here in the U.S., I feel there is still so much ageism against women here because of cultural ideals... menopause I feel is a very taboo subject here...
I particularly liked the part where it talks about menopausal women and work. My boss, and the women I work with, are all in their early 40s. They don't want to accept the fact that they are only a few years away...and therefore, no, I do not feel comfortable talking about my experiences to my female friends at work even though it probably would help my boss understand better why I'm struggling. One of my co-workers is 48 and seems completely terrified by the thought.
