We are Anna and Marie, two menopausal women in their early 50s. In the summer of 2009, Anna (I am the one writing most of this) about had it with hot flashes, night sweats and a myriads of other menopause symptoms. She didn't even know that most of her symptoms where in any way related to menopause. When she (finally) talked to her friend Marie about it, she was astonished to find a "been there and done that" soul mate. That was the beginning of this web site. You know how it goes: Marie talked to Lori, Anna to Sonia, Sonia to Pat, Pat to Marie and around and around we went. We found we were truly sisters in suffering.
We suffered from hot flashes, lack of libido, crankiness, mood swings and fear. When we finally had the guts to voice our fears to our friends, we all felt an incredible relief that our worst nightmares where baseless. And strange enough that was the most liberating: to share our fears.
Now, neither one of us is the kind of women who just "take it". So we started to look for solutions and answers. We were amazed to find so much totally confusing information. Our doctors told us one thing (or brushed us off), the Internet promised all sorts of cures. And celebrities were touting the "Bioidentical Hormone" miracle. So we wanted to see what the "real story" is, because we are NOT ready to go into the sunset anytime soon.
We hope you will join us on this journey.

In case you want to know how technically challenged 50plus year olds have the guts to start a webpage without knowing the first thing about programming, we found a link on the Internet that let us to SBI.
They not only guided us through the whole set up and technical stuff, but they totally changed our minds about what is possible. We are now determined to build this site into a home based business and (hopefully with time) allow us to quit our day jobs.
