What we're about

Women over 40 notice all kinds of changes happening in their bodies. Sometimes we talk about them in jest; other times we buckle in fear that they might be signs of aging or even worse - illness. Society does a bad job of telling us that it's OK to discuss ANYTHING that relates to our feeling confident that we are healthy. Social mores vary from culture to culture, but I can't find one that truly OVERTLY supports open and even urgent discussion about aging and menopause.

I'm forming this group with a mission to include the voices of experts (doctors, psychologists, health practitioners) along with women - to get us all off the internet (where mis information abounds) and into circles of Conversations for Clarity!

When we have a critical mass of members, I'll convene the perfect MeetUp to match our needs. Let me put it this way - just because every woman has a different experience with peri-menopause and menopause - that does not give society the right to shrug its shoulders and say "what ever works for you" without regard for the deeper message that silences too many of us. Too many women - especially minority and undeserved women - become ill because they "tough it out". Diseases are not diagnosed when warning signs are written off as "oh, this must be the 'change'." Let's get clear and stay healthy.

ALL ages welcome. Women's health is family health.
