Heavy Days.What a tumultuous time in our country. In the world. Woah. These has been very heavy days across the country in a time when we were all already grappling with the still-yet-unknown impact of COVID and post-quarantine life.
This time is pushing us in ways we could never have imagined. Some words that rise are fortitude, empathy, anger. Hearing George Floyd's brother speak today sparked light and hope. May we truly be on the cusp of real, deep, systemic social change ❤️
To jump from the heavy topic of social unrest to the topic of heavy periods seems superfluous. I get it. Nonetheless, I am going to do it.
Why? Because I want to hold space, however small it is, amidst all that's going on for self-care. For women at midlife who need education, support and solutions.
And, bleeding through both a tampon and a super absorbent maxi pad is real life, too.
On tomorrow's FB Live, we share tips on how to deal as well as why they may be happening.
We want to hear from you, too. What have you been doing/using to deal with heavy periods?
To get into it a more fully, listen to our Mighty Menopause FB Page / Live
Back to the topic of social change and racism, here's my tip. Learn something new, listen to new voices, reflect deeply. To help you with that I point you to Rachel Cargle Go immediately. Read and absorb everything she has to say, especially if you identify as a non-black woman.
