Ah, menopause matters! That wild roller coaster ride where our bodies throw a party filled with mood swings, memory blips, weight gain, stiff muscles, wardrobe mysteries, and let's not forget those infamous night sweats or hot flushes. But hey, who said we can't have a good laugh along the way?


In this light-hearted menopause matters blog, let's embark on a wild, hormone-fuelled adventure through menopause, sharing relatable anecdotes, friendly humour, and the unspoken truths that make us chuckle and say, "Yep, that's me!"


Brain Fog: Where Did My Words Go?

Imagine this: you're on a MS Teams video call, surrounded by your individuals eagerly awaiting your brilliant input. With confidence, you start to share your thoughts... but suddenly, three words into your sentence, your mind goes completely mush, and you are at a loss for words (quite unusually so, I might add). You find yourself wearing that classic expression of raised eyebrows, widened eyes, and an internal panic as you desperately search for something to say but it only comes out as nonsensical garble. Oh, the comedic timing of menopausal brain fog! It's like being the star of a sitcom, but in real life. But fear not, I know I am not alone. We've all been there, silently laughing at our own forgetfulness while our co-workers wonder if we've been body-snatched.


Stiff Muscles: How Do I Get There?

Let's set the scene for this menopausal morning routine: You wake up, ready to take on the day, only to find that your body has transformed into a rigid statue overnight. Every movement feels like a test of flexibility, and your attempts to reach for that coffee mug become an Olympic-worthy event. Who knew that tying shoelaces could be such an adventure? But hey, let's own it! As you navigate through these stiff muscles, remember to embrace the comic relief it brings to your day. We may walk around like ungraceful flamingos, but that's what makes us unique and adds a touch of comedy to our daily routine.


Weight Gain and Wardrobe Woes: Or Do I Have Shrinking Clothes?

Oh, the joys of menopause and its magical weight gain properties. It seems like the scale tips in the wrong direction, no matter how diligently we watch our diet or exercise. Our bodies cling to those extra pounds like they're gold medals of menopause. And let's not forget the wardrobe mysteries that come along with it. Suddenly, our favourite jeans don't fit anymore, or is it the wardrobe that has a sneaky "shrinking" setting? Either way, we find ourselves in a comedic dance with our clothes. Who needs those old jeans anyway when we can embrace new fashion choices that flatter our ever-changing shapes?


Hot Flushes and Night Sweats: And You Thought UK’s Weather was Unpredictable?

Just visualise: you're right in the midst of a crucial meeting, and out of nowhere, a heatwave engulfs you, making you feel like you've hit the jackpot in a steamy sauna. While hot flashes didn't personally pay me a visit, or at least not yet, I can definitely relate to those night sweats that turned my bed into a water park, leaving me tossing and turning all night long. But hey, who needs a restful sleep anyway, right? Menopause, with its delightful surprises, surely keeps us on our toes, proving that we're still capable of creating our own unique climate systems. So, whether it's fanning ourselves with anything within arm's reach or secretly wishing for the air conditioner to gain superhero powers, these unpredictable moments remind us to embrace the humorous side of our journey.


Mood Swings: What Am I Crying About Anyway?

Menopause has a way of turning us into emotional roller coasters. One moment we're laughing uncontrollably at a silly joke, and the next, we're shedding tears over am ant we stepped on. This wild rollercoaster ride, leaves those around us both amazed and bewildered. But hey, let's not take ourselves too seriously! Instead, let's embrace these mood swings with a side of friendly humour. After all, laughter is the best way to navigate the emotional whirlwind and show menopause who's boss!

So, as we journey through the wild adventures of menopause matters, let's remember to laugh, embrace the quirks, and find joy in the hilarity of it all. Whether it's our bouts of

brain fog, our morning stiffness-induced comedy routines, the wardrobe mysteries that leave us scratching our heads, or the emotional rollercoaster we ride daily, we have the power to approach menopausal symptom with a light-hearted perspective. So, my fellow menopausal warriors, let's celebrate the absurdity, share our stories, and find solace in the camaraderie of laughter. Together, we can conquer menopause with style, grace, and a healthy dose of humour!


Last thought: How many menopausal women does it take to change a light bulb? Just one, but it might take her a while because she keeps forgetting what she was doing!

Here's a great book I was recommended on Amazon for further reading on the topic:

"For too long, women have had to keep quiet about the menopause – its onset, its symptoms, its treatments – and what it means for us. Menopausing will build an empowered, supportive community to break this terrible silence once and for all. By exploring and explaining the science, debunking damaging myths, and smashing the taboos around the perimenopause and menopause, this book will equip women to make the most informed decisions about their health… and their lives."
