And while I wouldn’t call hot flashes and night sweats the worst symptoms of perimenopause, there is no doubt, they are bothersome. Thankfully, the only time I […]

Thumbnail image for Dear Magnolia…..About That Vertigo & Dizziness in Perimenopause

It’s time for another “Dear Magnolia” installment.  I picked a comment by a reader by the name of “Michelle” for this post. Michelle has been having trouble with vertigo and dizziness in perimenopause, along with balance issues, brain fog, and feeling spaced out.  She said she also suffers with migraines and wacky periods. Typical perimenopause […]

Symptoms of Perimenopause Symptoms of Menopause

I thought it would be appropriate – and helpful – to follow up on a recent post I did on the difference between perimenopause and menopause and provide a list of the symptoms associated with each. Though the terms are often (and I’m guilty of the same) used interchangeably, they are not the same thing. Perimenopause is a transitional […]

Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed

Thumbnail image for Hypothyroidism, Health & Happiness: The Riddle of Illness Revealed

It’s been hard for me to move away from this topic. Primarily because physicians like Dr. Hotze, and other healthcare providers, whom I respect, continue to address it. But, also because I think they are shining a necessary light on the issue of faulty testing procedures for hypothyroidism. Of course, the baby-boomer-rebel in me is […]

The Vivelle Dot: My Opinion So Far

Thumbnail image for The Vivelle Dot: My Opinion So Far

I have been using the Vivelle Dot, a transdermal, bioidentical estradiol for approximately one week now, and the verdict is in: I’m feeling better. The first thing I noticed after a couple of days of use, was the lifting of the brain fog.  The dense weight of short-term memory issues has not completely dissipated, but […]

Estrogen Replacement Therapy: Yes or No?

Thumbnail image for Estrogen Replacement Therapy: Yes or No?

Let’s face it.  The average women does not understand the role of estrogen during perimenopause.  But, when the average OB/GYN doesn’t seem to understand it very well either, is it any surprise then that women looking for help for their symptoms of perimenopause are clueless? It also doesn’t help that there is a big, wide […]

Wait……What was I saying?

Oh dear, it’s happened again! Occasionally, whilst talking to colleagues or friends/family my mind suddenly goes blank, it’s like someone pulling the plug and then there is…. Nothing! Just like a black hole! But, after a deep breath or two I can usually retrace my thoughts and get back on track. (Annoying thing is I […]

Perimenopause: Yes, it’s Real and No, You’re Not Going Crazy!

Thumbnail image for Perimenopause: Yes, it’s Real and No, You’re Not Going Crazy!

Feel better?  I could have used someone telling me that about 10 years ago when I walked right into one of the fiercest hormonal battles of my life. First of all, I had never heard of peri-anything.  Menopause?  Yeah.  I had heard of that.  My mom called it “the change,” and I knew that sooner […]
