FINDING MY WAY
I am extremely proud and honoured to share this with you. My first book marks an achievement, making a positive out of difficult circumstances. This memoir style narrative looks at my journey through midlife and motherhood, whilst dealing with menopause and associated mental health issues. It is written with honesty and humour and reviews summarise it as an uplifting read. I hope you enjoy it.
MY MIDLIFE MUDDLES
Browse my previous blog posts here. Started in 2018, these posts reflect my narrative on life as I see it at the time. Thoughts on motherhood, work-life balance, family stresses and demands, friendships and connections - aspects that we can all identify with. I hope you enjoy dipping into these.
CONFINED BY MY CAGE OF CONFIDENCE
"Tiredness had seeped into all aspects of my life, acting like a domino effect on mood, rational thought, patience and ability to function day-to-day."
Read about my struggle with self-confidence during my journey through Perimenopause. I was proud to be one of three finalists to have their articles featured in the magazine 'Health and Her' during the Perimenopause awareness month of October 2019.
THE POWER OF WORDS
I was honoured last year to have my story included in this edition of the magazine 'Menopause Matters.' The article looked at how writing has been my support mechanism to work through many issues and an aid in helping me to focus on my mental health.
