  1. Hi Ellen. This is so informative, and know it’s true! I use to work grave yard when raising my son, so I wouldn’t miss anything with him… school activities etc. This later react havoc on my adrenals,giving me adrenal fatigue. It took a long time to overcome this while in menapause. I can’t function without proper rest

    1. Linda, thanks for sharing your story. I can only imagine how difficult that ways on your body. I hope that you have found a good Menopause Specialist to help you with this. If you don’t already have one, read this Dear Ellen for some tips on how to find a good one!
