Menopause, perimenopause or andropause

I'm talking to everyone but especially those in my age group + or - 5 years.  Most of you know my age but for those who don't, I've been 29 for about 10 or so years!  :p

Some call it the "change of life" or "mid-life crisis" but it is what it is..... perimenopause, menopause or andropause (male menopause).  Around 35-45 women AND men, start to feel more tired, lethargic, ran down, in a fog and depressed.  You start really looking at your life and wondering why your job is no longer exciting or why you don't have any fun any more.  You feel overwhelmed, stressed and you either just grin and bare it or you want to just run away!  You know what I'm talking about.... we've all been there and felt like that!  

Well sometimes, just sometimes, its your body talking to you.  Its trying to tell you to slow down and take care of your body.  Guess what, if you do so, you regain your energy and the fog is lifted!  Have you ever noticed when you are really tired, you are negative and in a bad mood?  At this age, most likely your body is tired every day!  You've used and abused your body to the point it can't take much more!  It is time to do something about it!  But for those young pups out there, take care of yourselves now.  Get ahead of the curve.  You will be glad you did!

I recommended the Mood Cure a couple of posts ago.   My 2nd recommendation is one that still sits on my night stand....  Ageless

Don't get the wrong picture and think this is some cheesy celebrity endorsed book.  Suzanne actually uses her celebrity status to interview some of the top doctors and specialists to get some answers about medicine, misdiagnosis, foods and natural healing treatments.  Believe it or not, this book is an easy read and is filled with questions and answers as to how you feel and how you should feel.  It helps you to figure out where to turn and what questions to ask your doctors!
