Sorry girls, but I've just read the Daily Mail online (UK) and they've got a big article on how to' breeze' through the Menopause with articles running today and all of next week.
Great! We have someone in the Press on our side, at last. But hold on a minute, who are these 'Specialists' they refer to, who 'are urging......' us ladies?
As far as I'm concerned, to get to a Specialist in the UK you have to have some pretty major underlying problems to get referred to any specialist, let alone a Gynechologist specialising in all-things Peri/Meno!!
No doubt if you are happy to pay privately, you can see ANYONE to discuss ANY health issue: just most people don't have the money for this.
But more to the point: to see a Specialist you have to get a referral through a GP: there lies the problem. I'm sure there are many women on this forum who would agreed most know very little about this age-old phenomenon (been around as long as we've been around!) and treat it somewhat like a taboo.
I for one will be reading these artiles with interest. There's articles on HRT, research from the US, things we can take to help ourselves and, wait for it, even the perfect 'Menopause' Diet for us too!
We should feel totally indebted to the Daily Mail for highlighting this terrible, disgusting 'disease' ha, ha, ha!!!
No doubt I'll be reporting back next week with something to say about it. All I'll say today is: Specialists - huh! And lentils, tofu, miso - not for me ta
