I skimmed the parts that really either had no bearing on my personal situation or didn't interest me, but for what I DID read....talk about a load off my mind. Since July 2010, when my cycle went all wonky and 3 weeks out of 4 I felt like utter crap, I thought I was going crazy.

A fun sort of reference book. But having started to read it while in the throes of menopause, I couldn't focus on it and never finished it (there's irony for you), was pretty much through with actual menopause by the time I got around to deciding to mark it "Read" on Goodreads.
