    In conversation with fellow “30 poemer” Roxy Contin, I remarked that I was in a foul mood and not keen to produce today’s poem. She suggested a cinquain, since it’s short. In researching this particular form, I learnt of the “Crapsey Cinquain” named after Adelaide Crapsey. Adelaide Crapsey I thought it summed up my feelings nicely. So I present, my Crappy Cinquain. Fellow grumpy, menopausal women will particularly relate to this, I hope.   CRAPPY CINQUAIN  feel shite  hormones running  at least that’s my excuse for feeling like I want to stab…

    16 Apr 2014 | 12:06 pm
    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…

But it appears that the manufacturer is beginning to believe its own hype with the latest iteration: “Is Beauty a State of Mind?” Does real beauty start with the letter ‘G’ as in, ‘gullible?’ The Dove State of Mind campaign highlights several women of varying ages and ethnicities who are recruited to try the RB-X ‘Beauty Patch.’ For a week, they are asked to apply the patch and keep a daily diary.

    Last week, I talked about how men’s self-perception changes over time, as they age. After the column, I was amused and touched to have one friend contact me and ask if I was okay. The answer, for the record, was and is yes. I’m pretty comfortable with my physical self. That doesn’t mean I wasn’t ecstatic to be on my bike last Sunday for my first outside ride of the season, or looking forward to dropping a few pounds from around the waist as I ride more and more frequently. I am in not even in the ballpark where I might consider getting a surgical procedure done to…

    Recent evidence suggests that my on-board egg factory either already has ceased or will soon cease production after dropping more than 400 payloads down the hatch. Which means that, among other things, all symptoms of unstable hormonal activity in my body will soon cease as well (I hope—Gott im Himmel, I hope!). Knowhuttahmean, girls? I am finally passing through the gates of the change of life, leaving my procreative potential behind forever. The maiden who never became a mother has now become a … crone.

Some of us will flush for 30 minutes while others will only get a 30 second flash. 25 percent of us won’t get any menopausal symptoms at all.

    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.

So how do women find their way when it seems like we have no sense of direction and are utterly bewildered? 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. Jennifer has written a wonderful workbook to help us learn more about ourselves and identify some of our own needs. What Does Tao Mean to You? Since life doesn’t come with a roadmap, a simple set of…

    Millions of women struggle with menopause symptoms every day. And we all have a story to tell. Mine started more than four years ago. I was in my late thirties when my doctor told me that I was starting to experience early symptoms of perimenopause. I thought I was too young. And I was scared to death. I wanted answers. I wanted to know what I should expect during this next stage of my life. I read all the books, checked out the websites and tried to get as much information as I could. But I also wanted to be able to talk to somebody who understood me and could offer some guidance.

    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. As Dr. Bailey notes, anti-aging skin care is especially tricky for rosacea-type skin because any strong acids or rough exfoliation can trigger a flare-up. However, Dr. Bailey has managed to help her rosacea patients not only get their rosacea under control, but also incorporate a gentle anti-aging rosacea skin care routine. For…

    Retinol is a retinoid.  Retinoids are the vitamin A family class of agents.  Retinoids, in my experience as a dermatologist, are the most effective anti-aging skin care product ingredient short of sunscreen.   I’ve recommended topical retinoid skin care products to my patients for over 25 years and I’ve seen the anti-aging results over and over again – smoother more youthful appearing skin, fewer fine lines and wrinkles and a “stop the clock” effect on skin aging.  I myself have used retinoid products for the same period of time.  Yes, I’ve  drunk…
