Menopodcast Episode 14

Julia was very emotional this past week, and she did in fact forget to change her patch one day this week, and the two may be related. Sarah went to an event about women’s health, with a cardiologist and a brain scientist - and they were asked about hormone replacement therapy effects on brain and heart. Turns out affects are much lower/smaller with patch or topicals than with ingestibles. We know from reading this book, but it’s still news to people that heart disease is the main killer...

Sarah feels it’s a real time of reckoning for her. She feels real clarity about things in her life that she needs to do more of or less of - and she’s ready to get on with it. Julia had a similar thing happen at work - a reckoning. It’s been a busy time for both of them. Podcast empire, anyone? Bible Study - Chapter 1 - Menopause Puts Your Life Under a Microscope - from the Wisdom of Menopause - we felt we got more out of the chapter by reading it at the end than having started with it at...

Chattin’ about the Change! It has been a challenge to learn how to podcast and new ways to Google things! Julia’s been finishing up the movie project she’s been working on and remarks upon the young people she’s working with and the things they DON’T UNDERSTAND because of the age difference. We talk about the radio we used to listen to back in the 70s on Maui. We talk about the rate of change in the past 20 years. Like when Sarah’s kids were born (1999 and 2003) she still took photos on...

Angry Podcast today since we had to reconfigure Garage Band again! Ugh! Should we take the need to reconfigure our tech settings as a metaphor for the reconfiguring of our lives??? Um, we’d rather not. How Hot Was Your Flash? Julia had several hot flashes this week and realized it was because she had not changed her hormone patch when she was supposed to, but once she changed it, she seemed to get back on track. Julia’s considering a job possibly in another country, possibly temporarily....

The ladies had good night’s sleep and it makes all the difference. They are both in a good place! Julia’s not happy with the fact that she’s been coming home from work too late to see her daughter before bedtime, but hopefully that won’t last. Sarah’s college son has now started classes and has touched base via Facetime. She had a nightmare that her son had been stolen from her by aliens - literally snatched from her arms - so that’s a clue to her state of mind over her son leaving home…...

Feeling the disconnect between what menopause is “supposed to be like” and what it is really like for us. It's not a time of free time for us since we’re not retired or with an empty nest - we have children and we’re still working. We are not the oldest parents we know, which is interesting. Bible study - chapter 12 - Building Healthy Bones from the Wisdom of Menopause by the Christianne Northrup - we liked this chapter - found it a good reminder of things to do and not too “scoldy”....

Welcome to Menopodcast! This is our intro episode and we spend a little time talking about who we are, our menopause, and where we got the name for the podcast. We spend time wondering if anything like Menopause happens to Men? Or is it just for us Ladies? We also chat about getting answers to the things happening to our bodies. We discuss the difference between being self-motivated and being selfish. We have decided to “pod what you know,” and that, for us, is menopause. We have...
