I think menopause is the best kept secret around.
No one tells a woman what will happen once they hit 45 to 55. The biggest problem is that some women become more and more irrational, and have no insight that they are acting the way they are due to menopause. They are not themselves.
All this suffering and mad behavior is coming from a loss of hormones.

I am all for life without drugs and “natural” solutions, yet if I go to hospital with a broken leg, I want morphine! That doesn’t make me an addict.
If you have these symptoms, and find via a blood test that you’re in menopause – please do something about it. If you can’t get back on track and be yourself – for heavens sakes, take pity on your partner, husband, and your family members and get on hormone replacement therapy. I recommend Sandra Cabot for natural HRT solutions.
