I am 40 years old and am currently in treatment for breast cancer. Because chemotherapy is part of the path I have chosen, I am now in early onset menopause.
As my symptoms progress, I have been looking for resources to help me along. I am looking for support as I try to make sense of this sudden thrust in to a different stage of life. (I, of course, have your menopause book.) But what I am finding is mostly geared toward women in their Crone years. I am the mother of two young children! I am still very much in my Mother years. Most of the main books on the subject only have a page or two dedicated to women in my situation.
Do you have any resource suggestions for me? Do you have plans to include a comprehensive section on early onset menopause in revised editions of your book? In my humble opinion, it is greatly needed!
The suggestions in Susun's book absolutely can be used whether going through menopause naturally or if it is brought about prematurely... So I wouldn't hesitate to use them for various issues, whether emotional issues -- anger, depression or physical -- hot flashes, dry vagina, etc. You might also want to look into our forum at www.healingwiseforum.com. We have a room dedicated to menopause and I know that we have had younger women post in there ... might be a good place to look for support.
