“o” dear!

Earlier this summer, I arrived at the taping for Oprah Radio’s Dr. Laura Berman show promptly. I found the secret metal door to the entrance of the studio.  The elevator was directly across from the security desk – no problem.  I was greeted on the fifth floor and taken directly to the waiting area – perfect.  Settled into the sofa with fifteen minutes until taping. All good.  With just a few minutes left before taping – I had to GO!  I was walked to the bathroom – sweet.   I did my business and threw open the door ready to jet back – can’t miss the taping! But wait, where is my guide?

Determined to make it on time, I confidently dashed down the hall, making a few confident turns.  All the halls looked alike: stacks of black equipment everywhere.  Surely there was something I could remember that would lead me back!

I glanced down at my shoes – they were not red nor did they sparkle.  My Prius navigation system was no where to be seen (where are you when i need you @3genprius @Toyota). I had no choice, I had to do it and do it fast!   I had to stop someone and ask for a tow.  Yep, tow me in.  Don’t point, don’t give me directions, I need a tow. This shmirshky is lost!

Really I need a lo-jack implant into my body, because I get lost everywhere I go!  I have a Jack (that’s my son), but I really need a LoJack.

After struggling with her own severe menopause symptoms and doing years of research, Ellen resolved to share what she learned from experts and her own trial and error. Her goal was to replace the confusion, embarrassment, and symptoms millions of women go through–before, during, and after menopause–with the medically sound solutions she discovered. Her passion to become a “sister” and confidant to all women fueled Ellen’s first book, Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness. As a result of the overwhelming response from her burgeoning audiences and followers’ requests for empowering information they could trust, Ellen’s weekly blog, Menopause MondaysTM, was born.
