Show Notes

In this episode, I read a blog post I wrote two years ago, Spring of 2021. I had settled into my new life in a beach town and renewed my lease for another year. I had found an online writing community and finished a real draft of my memoir. I was feeling good . . . except for one thing. My sleep sucked.

Sometimes, I would be wide awake for three hours, just lying there as if I was on alert for danger. Other nights, I would wake up with a hot flash so intense, I’d whip my covers across the bed, and then when my body cooled down enough to fall asleep, I’d wake up shivering. This went on for months.

One day, I decided I wanted to know more about this menopause thing. The more I reflected, the more I realized that women have been trained to resist and reject this part of their lives.

I hope you enjoy my reading of this blog post about coming into relationship with menopause. Don’t kid yourselves, men, you have your own version of hormone fluctuations, and you can be just as moody as women. It’s just more accepted for you.

Enjoy, learn something, and be entertained!
