I really need to catch up on a few more reviews, so here goes…
Although this blog is usually about fantasy and SF, sometimes I like to read something outside those genres, and this is one of those occasions.
This little book is one for ‘ladies of a certain age’, and, indeed all ladies, as it comes to us all at some point. Reading it might also enlighten a few men too 😉
“I often found myself drifting from a state of normal in a sudden twist of bitchiness.”
From PMS to menopause to what the hell?
D.G. adds a touch of humor to a tale about a not-so-humorous time. While bidding farewell to her dearly departing estrogen, D.G. struggles to tame her raging hormones of fire, relentless dryness, flooding and droughts and other unflattering symptoms.
Join D.G. on her meno-journey to slay the dragons of menopause as she tries to hold on to her sanity, memory, hair, and so much more!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh how this book made me chuckle. Even as I read it, I kept thinking ‘yes, been there, done that!’ Particularly the need to revamp my entire wardrobe to accommodate those all-too frequent and infuriatingly relentless hot flashes.
This is a memoir, not a text book on how to cope with menopause, but in her pursuit of coping mechanisms, Kaye brings plenty of good sense to the situation, with suggestions that anyone can try and see if they fit into their own situation.
I must admit that having recently achieved the far end of this offensive but unavoidable condition, I am vastly relieved that I was not subjected to all the symptoms detailed in this memoir. Hallelujah for small mercies!
Women of all ages should take a read – and so should their men-folk, to give them a better insight into what’s in store for the women in their lives, and how to live through it!
