A subtle, progressive shift in our hormones can start as early as our late 30s, and it creates a raft of changes in our body and our brain. While it’s different for every woman, this can include mood swings, migraines, depression, loss of confidence and feeling like you’re not yourself anymore. Author and fitness coach Amanda Thebe dubs it the ‘Menopocalypse’. In this episode Amanda describes her harrowing journey through perimenopause, from her debilitating symptoms to how she behaved with her family (badly), and how she was able to claim back control, shed the symptoms and regain her confidence. It’s an inspiring story with many useful lessons for anyone who thinks they may be going (just a little bit) crazy during menopause.
