Is it enough?
How are you? I hope you have had a great autumn so far. This last part of the year is just flying by, it has been just over 2 months since my shoulder operation and I am happy to say I am starting to feel normal again, it has been a struggle that I am glad is nearly over! By the 8th December I will be able to use my left arm properly again.
I am really happy to say that our Meno community is growing fast, the reason I started Meno & Me is so women would not suffer as I did during menopause and to have a community where we can feel safe and supported.
The amazing Dr Louise Newson has been super busy and last month managed to finally speak on ITV Lorrain Kelly show. We were both on the Chanel5Live show about menopause and lots of celebrities are starting to talk about it more. Even Davina McCall mentioned us on her Facebook group!
Which is all great and very positive, but is it enough?
We have a closed Facebook group and it seems a lot of women are still not getting the correct treatment from their GP. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1694658214116003/
I want to ask you today;
Have you received the right treatment?Has your GP been supportive? Is you GP for or against HRT?Do you feel supported at work?Is your family/partner being supportive?
I would really love to hear from you, you can email me back directly here.
Louise has kindly written a letter that you can take to your GP to nudge them in the right direction, please feel free to copy and paste it from our site.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and as apparently, I love to nag people about the benefits of exercise I would like to leave you with this as a little Monday motivation from my morning walk.
Have a great week everyone and I really do hope I hear from you.
