I got this email from a reader and didn’t really have any good advice to offer her. Her problem is that her girlfriend is going through menopause. Which as women, is something we are ALL going to go through eventually. To be more specific, the problem she is having is that her girlfriend is having some serious mood swings, so bad in fact, that it’s making life hard. She wrote to me hoping that either me or some of my amazingly intelligent readers might have some helpful advice and information on how to survive this phase in life.
The only experience I have so far with menopause has been my extremely horrible experience as a teenager when my mother was going through it. From that, I know that some women can become extremely difficult to be with. I think menopause cost my mother a lot of valuable relationships in her life because she didn’t have any medical help going through it. I’m no expert but I’ve heard that sometimes hormone replacement can really help a woman? But that scares me too because of the possible side affects. This email got to me because while I’m not there just yet, I am 7 years older then Remi and we’ve talked about how scary we both anticipate this part of life will be. So please, if anyone out there has some good advice, please let us know!
