When “menopausal misery” hits, women can experience hot flashes, headaches, anxiety and sometimes even deep depression. In this part 2 discussion, the late author Jean Lush explains that as a woman’s menstrual cycle ceases, her body changes and she will often lack energy, be on edge, and can have frequent, exhausting mood changes. Lush counsels husbands to be extra supportive during this time, and tells women they can look forward to greater energy on the other side.
