Disclaimer... because I am not a medical professional

The Menopause Life

Hey there, I just wanted to add a quick disclaimer before sharing more of my menopause journey and experiences on this blog. Mostly, I started writing to have an outlet to express myself and hopefully find and provide support for others going through similar things.

At the same time, I'm hoping this space can become a helpful resource hub of sorts. I'll do my best to include relevant links to articles and sources of info. But please know, I'm not claiming to be any kind of expert here! I don't have any medical or healthcare qualifications whatsoever.

Everything I know has come from personal experiences, listening to podcasts, watching videos online, or reading up on things. So take what I say with a grain of salt. All the thoughts and opinions you’ll find are just my own. Please do your own research to verify anything I mention.

If you ever need actual treatment advice or counselling support, I can’t provide that for you myself. My role is more as a friendly ear to listen without judgement. But for proper guidance, consult your doctor or a licensed therapist. Those folks have gone through proper training to safely lend professional help.

At the end of the day, while I aim for honesty and accuracy, I'm human - I don't have all the answers by any means! Your health and well-being should always come before anything I've said. Talk to medical professionals about your own personal situation. They will know what's best for you and how to treat your specific symptoms and situation.

I hope sharing ups and downs from my journey through perimenopause and now full menopause can at least help you feel less alone. But take care of yourself first - if ever in doubt or distress, seek advice from qualified sources. I'm just here as a shoulder when needed!

  1. Already joined the group. My mom went through menopause a long time ago. We didn't take advantage of many resources if at all, and she basically just suffered through it. I always worry we didn't handle it in the best way possible and I hope to find a way to change that. Thank you for creating an awesome resource!

    1. You're most welcome and I hope that this will help a few people though I know there's a lot out there on menopause. Unfortunately, too many women suffer in silence.
