Menopausal intuition

When something is right, feels right, I sense a lightness, a knowing that I’m on the right path.

And the opposite is also true.  I know when something is wrong because there’s a heaviness to it.  So why have I, and millions of other women, fought our instincts on so many occasions?

During my perimenopause and beyond, I lost count of how many times I had a feeling of coarseness, a jarring on my nerves.  This could arise at work, in my relationships, when I’d been drinking, on a poor diet, having lack of sleep, saying yes to something I really wanted to say no to, etc. etc.

I didn’t realise the harm I was doing to myself by ignoring my intuition and continuing on a path that I knew was destructive!

The years of menopause transition are the years that our health needs go sky-high, but me, I just carried on my toxic life, ignoring the warning signs.

I did come out the other side, though, and I believe that I learned the hard way so I could go on and help someone else. 

I’ve ruddy well learned how NOT to ignore my feelings and it’s been a great lesson which I now live by!

What’s your menopause teaching you? How do you think you could improve your experience?

I’m not a qualified clinician, dietician, or psychologist, or anything! I write based only on my own experiences, personal views, and research into menopause. Please always seek the advice of a professional. Jacky Wood
