Because life doesn't pause during menopause.

And the Lucky Woman Said…

And the Lucky Woman Said…
"My sex drive INCREASED with menopause. My husband is thrilled."

“My sex drive INCREASED with menopause. My husband is thrilled.”  This is a first-hand report. It was told to me, by someone I wanted to write for us here. She hasn’t yet, but maybe… Now that I’m talking openly with women about their journeys, I’m hearing so many different stories. But this one, it’s kind of like getting an authentic picture of Sasquatch! And definitely one of those “I’ll have what she’s having” things, as well.

I wanted to share, because it’s pretty easy to wallow in all of the real and imagined downers related to peri/menopause. And post-menopause, for that matter.

Other good things worth noting? Well, a LOT of women, more than I imagined, have sailed through menopause with no issues to speak of. Some were helped by hormone or other treatments, some had few or no symptoms to treat. I have an actress friend from college, and I really want to work with her, so I thought she could do some video as a grumpy menopausal lady, but she said she just couldn’t relate. “It happened years ago and I think it was about a week…”. No problems to make fun of. No rants to use to make some fun video.

And then there are the women who are “beyond” menopause, who are proof that this issue that seems so huge when we’re experiencing it, goes away in the future. They say it’s too far in the past. They can’t relate. Even the one who said that during perimenopause she chose to use hormone therapy, because her husband and son might otherwise put her outside the door and leave her there. Because she was so out of sorts. I’ve started meeting lots of those wise women who are on the other side of this issue, and hope to share more from them here as we add to HotFlashDaily.com.

So- there ’tis. Some good news, keep it in your back pocket, and use it when it seems your body is out of your control and definitely not on your side! It will get better. “All will be well.” Just a matter of time…

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!

Submissions should be first-person posts written in a blogging, editorial, or columnist style WITHOUT commercial links.
