Mmm, I'm not looking forward to it. I thought one of the benefits would be missing out on the cramps, etc!

Dang. I was figuring that someone would hand me an instruction book when I get to menopause (which is not too far away in my future now).

Cute photo - so that's a mood swing? Where can I get one?

Valerie, I think the instructions seem to be the usual for good health - keep slender, exercise, don't eat too much meat or processed foods, (don't smoke or drink too much alcohol), eat a lot of fruit and vegeatables - and then for menopause, eating a lot of soy products and sprouts seems to be helpful.

I'm a bit worried about the reports of soy protein and cancer. I love my soy milk and tofu, so that's put a bit of a dampener on it for me.

I heard this was the manual on menopause. Or at least it was when I was a teenager, many eons ago...

I'm mentally filing this information away....

I'm delighted that you've been posting a few more photos lately. This one is lovely.

Helen, I want to do some research on that soy/cancer link - I'm rather dubious about it myself, given that Japanese women who eat a lot of tofu reputedly have such low levels of cancer.

Great Blog! I consciously began my journey at 49 with regular, but extremely heavy periods. Then they just stopped and life became very uncomfortable. Migraines,my present thyroid condition went haywire, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, the list goes on. I changed my diet, began a significant vitamin routine, get plenty of rest and began using a progesterone cream. I am a new person now. All symptoms have diminished or stopped all together and I have about 6 light periods a yr now.
