You have an appointment at the Doctors (generally 10 minutes), if you are confused and emotional there is not much of a chance that they are going to pick up that you are Peri Menopausal (still having periods) or menopausal. They may well give you anti depressants or another treatment that will not actually help you.
I have my first appointment tomorrow and have researched what my symptoms are and what my options might be for treatment – I have the utmost respect for GP’s and have devised this form to help other ladies give their Doctors all the information about their symptoms in an easy to see form.
Simply fill in this form and take it with you to your appointment –
I really hope this helps you on your journey & I will share my experiences right here in my blog each week.
As you know I’m a huge advocate of exercise as a form of help during stressful times, which the menopause certainly is!
I support 160 ladies on a daily basis in Kate’s Club where we do Low Impact exercises each day for just 15 minutes – hardly enough to get a sweat (unless you were having a flask already!!)
Exercise helps lift your mood, set you up for a good day, & motivates you to make the right food decisions that day.
I wish you all the best health and happiness this summer & don’t forget I’m here for you in Kate’s Club where I can give you personal daily advise & most importantly MOTIVATION to stick with it !
