I just wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much the matter of menopause series has meant to me.
This year started with a diagnosis of uterine prolapse during a routine visit - out of nowhere - and then a sudden, subsequent menopause that I wasn’t prepared for at 49. Another child left for college and then my youngest became very independent, got her license, a job, and a boyfriend… And now she’s gone all the time with my car... All is as it should be, I know, but it's lot of change and loss to process this year. I've really felt overwhelmed with grief.
So your series came just at the right time. I’ve learned so much, been so inspired. Every episode has made me clap my hands in applause, several have even brought me to tears. Menopause should be a celebration, an initiation, and the beginning of the next beautiful chapter. Turning *50* next week, journaling, buying myself gifts, ready to celebrate. Looking forward to it rather than dreading it, thanks to these conversations.
Just wanted to say, thank you, thank you, thank you. You’ve really blessed me.
