Menopause Success Summit is being talked about nationwide
‘Knowing I’m not alone has been a tremendous help’
The day before I was having a really low day mood-wise and starting to question my meaning, etc… so going to MSS was timely. It helped calm my mind to focus on the positive.
I went for a walk with my pal the next morning and we shouted MENOPAUSE at a field full of cows… we laughed and laughed. But we’re women all together in this. After MSS, I want to spread the word and talk more. That’s how we become informed.
I decided to go because I’ve met a lack of professional information about perimenopause from my GP. Thinking you are quietly going mad on your own is horrendous, but knowing I’m not alone has been a tremendous help.
