Have you ever felt like the walls were closing in on you? That you would not be able to handle another thing? Have you woken up in the middle of the night and you couldn't turn off all the things going on in your head?

How To Handle The Dreaded "M" Word - Menopause.

How did I get here?  When did I reach this point in my life?  For Christ sake, I am still finding myself!  LOL.  I have finally heard the dreaded word - menopause- from my doctor.  I wanted to spit in her face and scream at the top of my lungs,  "WHY!!"
