I’m looking for menopause stories. Yours or someone else’s.
Funny, sad, scary, ironic, apocryphal, enlightening, dubious, charming, educational, poignant.
But mostly funny because let’s face it — menopause is a hoot!
Here’s an example … my female dentist of a certain age has to be sure her first appointment of the day is also female because she ALWAYS has a hot flash when she gets into her office in the morning. Men get freaked out, but women get a good laugh from it.
Speaking of men, I’d love to get the male perspective too.
And I want this message to go viral, squirming its way into every nook and cranny of cyberspace. Help me out, peeps.
I will tell you what I’m doing with these stories when you provide one (and if you care). I know this can be a sensitive subject, so please ask for anonymity if you so desire.
There are several ways you can contribute.
One — comment on this blog. Keep in mind this is a public forum, though.
Two — email me directly at AmpersandPress@aol.com with “menopause story” in the subject line.
Three — send me a private message on Facebook.
Four — if you’re my mother, you can call me. I promise to return your call just as soon as I’m able.
There’s no strict timeframe on this … well, not much of one, anyway … so please forward this link to all your far-flung friends and enemies. I want a lot of stories, so viral this, baby!
Thanks so much!
