New Book! This one is a little bit out of my “normal” reads, LOL, but informative nonetheless. It’s about women who are going through menopause, and pre-menopause. I’m a bit young for this now, but it is good to know what’s to come! It’s not like people discuss this stuff on the regular- though maybe they should. If all women go through some kind of menopausal issues- why not at least understand what’s going on?

It’s a but much at times- the author is trying really hard to be funny and witty, and sometimes it’s just like GROAN, ok, yep. Got it. And the words Shmirshky and Erlick are used every other second. But it is not a dry read, it’s not boring, and that is saying something when the topic is as “touchy” as this one. If you are going to read a book on the subject- and we all should- give this one a try. It’s a quick read, and like I said- you won’t be bored. It also has some good suggestions for going to the doctor and things to watch out for. Kind of like a “What to Expect When You’re Expecting….the Menopause Years” (LOL)

Are you a woman? Or do you know one? Then
Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness is for you! Shmirshky is the first book on menopause of its kind — it’s easy, funny, and full of love! Rest assured, this is not your mother’s menopause resource book. The truth is, your mother probably never had a book on menopause, and if she did, she probably thought it was really boring. Reading shmirshky is like having a cocktail with a hilarious friend, who just so happens to know a lot about menopause.
Let’s face it, menopause doesn’t have the best reputation in the world. It’s rarely talked about, and when it is, it’s usually quickly dismissed and often dreaded. Shmirshky, a menopause resource, redefines this time in a woman’s life, turning a taboo topic into an all-inclusive page turner.
Whether you’re a forty-five-year-old woman in perimenopause or an eighteen-year-old man who thinks his mom is in need of an exorcism, Shmirshky is the perfect introduction to a subject we all encounter in one way or another.
Shmirshky: the pursuit of hormone happiness comes with a Daily Symptoms Chart, which will help you communicate your symptoms to your doctor. Remember, reaching out is IN. Suffering in silence is OUT!

  1. Book Cover is odd

  2. Been there and done that at the young age of 40. I look back at it with fondness. I prayed for it to happen to me after my first period. LOL
