MY PERI-MENOPAUSE - MENOPAUSE JOURNEY



So as my body ages and at 51 I'm in those peri-menopausal years. I'm noticing so many changes to my body and surprised how little I knew about this stage of a womens life. Its crazy how we don't seem to talk about it, its like a taboo topic or its whispered between us ladies.


Not for me, I'm going to talk about it to anyone and everyone should the topic crop up. This is a stage in my life that I shouldn't be embarrassed about. Its been challenging enough to be quiet about my menstrual cycle, my periods and how little us ladies discuss it, how over the years it gets dismissed as one of those things.


I feel more understanding is required from society and each other. My intention is to use my already developed tool bag of meditation, breathwork, EFT and yoga to help with my journey of menopausal symptoms, which is helping with my increased anxiety, low moods and hot flushes/sweats. Taking care of me, my body, my wellbeing has become even more of a focus as I begin these changes in my hormones and body shape. Yes the weight gain has appeared overnight lol, well thats what it felt like 🤣 however I am aware that we can burn fat a little quicker during menopause when we exercise, so ill see how that goes.


I intend to avail of all the services of all my mindful fitness friends, doing my yoga and High Intensity Pilates at Hot Yoga Newry with the lovely Jenny, whose classes are very suited to building strength for us menopausal ladies, along with Matthew Amplify Wellness banbridge whose 121 personal training totally focuses on strength training and changing body shape without all the heavy lifting of weights, gyms are not all about pumping iron guys, it offers so much more than that. Also Team Magill: All Things Health, Life, Fitness & Family offer High Intensity training classes in banbridge. All local self-employed professionals offering great knowledge and experience.

Awful !!! I’ve just literally been thrown into it, irregular periods, low mood, tiredness, irritability, low self esteem, borderline depression which I never suffered with thank God, anxiety, no sex life, I’ve just been on HRT for 3 months and I’m not really noticing any great benefit yet. Oh the joys !!

Thanks for sharing your experience Diane, having many of those myself. Its so challenging and my Mindfulness has been a blessing to know that its ok to feel this way, that I know the anxiety and depressive feelings will pass and that is not who I am. I'm not on HRT, I will see how things go, I'm not adverse to them, we all need support, let me know how you get on with them. I going to focus on my other therapies to see how the help me. Take care and always remember you are not the feelings or your thoughts.

Totally agree Lorraine, I’ve been in this situation since 48 yrs of age and still suffering hot flushes at age of 60, however the palpitations, anxiety and extremely low mood and tiredness has completely been obliterated by Team Magill membership and your professionalism combined, forever grateful ❤️
