I wanted you to know that I read your book all in one setting. What I loved the most about this book is that I figured out that I am not crazy, I am just going through perimenopause. I know that you are a very busy woman, but I feel you are my only hope.
I am experiencing sleeplessness, hot flashes and tremendous mood swings. Some days, I just don’t feel like I am ok. This has been going on for 3 years.
I am most frustrated! There must be many women, like myself, who at the age of 38-41 are experiencing these symptoms. My doctor never checked my hormones or even spoke about perimenopause to me. I was just put on an anti-depressant and sent home. I don’t know how to get help.
Please Help! Kat
I am so sorry to hear that you have been through so much :<(
It makes me smile knowing that you found my book helpful and comforting.
