Traipsing through the menopausal minefield you take pains to avoid its unpleasant symptoms, ignore its unappealing reputation and try to make the best of it… but it’s not always easy. Let author Jasheway-Bryant throw an amusing spin on the mid-life changes that are inevitable and give you the gift of laughter with page after page of her inventive quips: “You know you’re menopausal if…you use so much moisturizer that you slide off the furniture” or “you refer to your friend as What’s Her Name.” The retro photographs, paired with witticisms that only the woman in the throes of Menopause can appreciate, are good for a chuckle and a lighter perspective. Humor takes the sting out of a sometimes harsh reality and leads us to a better place, offers us a comfortable seat for the ride. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take all the help I can get!
