This is one of the reasons why we have decided to give you some of the most exciting stories on her radio show. It is important to realize that you are not alone and that many women are facing the same issues.
I started my menopause in the early 40s, which was a considerable shock back then. I was relatively unfamiliar with this condition because I considered myself to be young still. It took me a couple of months to accept this change. But, in that short time, my life started falling apart.
I couldn’t control my emotions, the relationship with my husband and my kids was getting worse, and I experience the strange changes considering my body. At that time, my self-esteem was decreasing, and I felt terrible about myself. I couldn’t understand why these things were happening to me when all other women were going through this period smoothly.
One day I was listening to the radio in my car, and I heard a talk show, women sharing their experiences about the menopause. That moment changed my life, I started visiting doctor, and I improved my life.
The menopause struck me like lightning. Everything happened suddenly, and I didn’t have time to consider my life decision and changes. I started withdrawing and any time when someone would ask me how I feel I would either avoid the answer or just say OK.
Now when I remember, I would change many things. I would choose to be more open because if you are quiet about the issues that are bothering you, you will never find help. The first condition I experienced was mixture of depression and anxiety.
I would yell and fight with everyone, but once I overcome that stage, I would lie in my bed for hours. No one knew what was happening to me. Once in my solitude, I was scrolling through radio stations on my smartphone, and I stumbled upon Carrie. I remember that moment like it was yesterday because it changed everything.
