    If I needed proof I was getting older, it came when I started into a level of crankiness that gradually built to the point where all I needed was a pair of reading glasses on the end of my nose and a walking stick to shake while inveighing against “those kids.” Whether it’s bad luck, the randomness of the universe, or some sign of an actual trend, I’ve been seeing a lot of things lately about sexual assault in online or “geek” culture recently, and it’s getting me angry.

    Last night was terrible. It was one of the worst migraine’s I’ve had in a really long time. Nothing took the pain away except the ice on the back of my neck. It was awful, but thankfully when I woke up it was gone. I was left exhausted. It really knocked me out, but thankfully pain-free. I can’t even put into words what I felt like last night. I think my poor son was scared. He sat with me and just held my hand while I laid down with ice on my head. For some reason, he felt that was a good time to tell me his feeling about something going on in his life and you would think…

    21 Apr 2014 | 4:04 am
    I hate to start Monday off on a bad note but I’ve got some rather unpleasant news to share: the menopausal transition is pretty darn bloody. For many of us in late perimenopause, this abnormal bleeding might come as quite a surprise. I was fairly certain that as my menstrual periods slowed, so would the blood flow. However, the bleeding appeared to worsen the closer I got to actual menopause. It was so heavy, I would find myself going through super pluses every hour for at least a day and a half. It was truly as if the little boy took his finger out of the dam. To make matters worse,…

    Do different generations stay different? Do we replicate the patterns of our parents, or do we make different choices? Like many people my age, I have aging parents. In my case, that’s a mom approaching her 90s with some medical challenges and the difficult adjustment of living alone for the first time in her adult life. It’s a struggle, and I think it has forced her and her two sons to face up to some uncomfortable truths over the last few years, particularly since my dad died in the summer of 2012. One of those: how I will confront the inevitabilities of old age (if I am…

    Keeps the flashes at bay??? When the folks at Exert contacted me on Twitter about their Smart Body Coolant, I wanted to believe, I truly did. However, what I’ve found after a week’s use is that the product simply does not live up to its claims, at least, not for me. Exert’s Smart Body Coolant is a once-daily body spray composed of phase change and high thermal conductivity materials. Theoretically, it promises to draw heat away from the body much like a wicking fabric, reducing temperature by as much as 2 to 6 degrees. And there’s no need for additional application…

However, there are several things I do not feel led to share openly for anyone and everyone to read. So, what now? Well, I don’t know if I told you, but another young lady has identified us as her spiritual parents. I was thinking about it this past weekend and God began to deal with me. He revealed to me that all of my daughters are going through something right now. The other side of that, is that if I’m going to accept being a spiritual mother, I need to pray for…

Recovery from surgery is going well, had a minor setback but really nothing to worry about. Let’s just say dealing with a clingy feverish baby in the middle of the night during night sweats is, um, difficult? Unpleasant? You do the math on that one. But we got through it, and after a few days for Mommy and baby to recover we are all doing OK again. I may be able to return to work part-time soon, covering…

    Does menopause ever make you feel “too old?” Whatever our age, it seems like we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders while life is passing us by. We’re too old to go out and have fun. Too old for that dress. Too old to wear the bright red lipstick, even though it’s the perfect color. It’s time to stop hiding, worrying, and simply existing. And if you need a little inspiration, check out this clip from the documentary Fabulous Flashionistas. The film follows the lives of six women in their 70s and 80s who are redefining their ages in style. Without botox or plastic surgery.

Well, according to Jennifer Boire, MA and author of The Tao of Turning Fifty, we might already have the answers. We just need to ask the right questions.

  • Retinol Facts – What Retinol Can Do for Your Skin

    Cynthia Bailey, M.D.
    21 Apr 2014 | 1:41 pm
    Retinoids can work wonders to fight the signs of skin aging. I’ve used them for years in my dermatology practice.   The two forms of retinoids that I use most often are prescription retinoic acid (called tretinoin, which is found in Retin-A and Renova) and retinol. Retinol products are non-prescription, so you don’t need a trip to the doctor to add retinol to your anti-aging skin care routine. Are you wondering why you should add retinol to your skin care routine and what can retinol do for your skin?  Here’s what we know. Retinol FAQs Retinol is vitamin A. It is a member…

    Do you have rosacea and have been searching for an anti-aging skin care routine? After a few phone call inquires regarding anti-aging rosacea skin care options, it is time to revisit Dr. Bailey’s blog post: Anti-Aging Skin Care Options for People with Rosacea.
