“@janeblackford007 Jane B, very belated thanks for your comment. I wasn’t able to find your post on this topic — if you can find it, can you post the link here? I agree that it is really important to talk about this, and I don’t see any reason why not — the heck with societal taboos. Menopause is something that every *single* woman in the world who lives long enough deals with — usually for decades. I read recently that by 2030 12% of the global population will be going through menopause. It is a major physiological change that reaches tentacles into every aspect of the functioning of mind and body and if we want to live vibrant, full, active lives through this time, then we need to learn from and support each other.”
– Thanks Jane – my post is still on the forum: 4 Jan 2020 “Training into menopause” – but doesn’t appear in the Forum Index tagging. I’ll post a screen shot of first two posts on it below.
The info is good, but – wow – a LOT has happened in the start of 2020. The thread appears almost historical now!
One thing that’s struck me about Selene Yeager’s podcast – having listened regularly, quite recently I listened back to an early episode from the show, and then hearing the episode she did a year in reflecting on the whole thing – was how much she’s developed in the year or so of ‘Hit Play Not Pause’ and the ease that she now chats about menopause / perimenopause etc compared with the start of the podcast – and that feels like it’s rippling out.
Another possibility for propagating the ripples on this forum is to create separate threads for specific menopause themed posts.
Jane M – thanks – your picking up on my earlier post triggered a sense of being part of a ‘tribe’ and my voice being heard. For me fining my voice feels like it’s part of this perimenopause+ path too, all best Jane
