Many menopausal women may feel like no one understands them, and they have to tread this phase of life alone, confused, and always in want of feeling better. The physical symptoms can be quite debilitating, and the emotional turmoil within doesn't help either. But, it doesn't have to be that way, not ever, because you deserve better. You deserve to be in a community, to feel good, and to reclaim the opportunity that this new phase offers.
In this week's podcast episode, I talk to one of our MENO-Mates, Tammy LeMesurier. Tammy shares what made her join The Menopause Movement and how being in a community helped her. She also talks about the intangible improvements in her life upon entering the program, encouraging other women to invest in themselves, for they deserve better.
Tune in to this episode today.
