Menopause – Boundaries are Important

Friday, April, 29, 2016 < Back to Blog Posts

There’s no argument from anyone that menopause is hard. Coping with what comes your way in everyday life can be a challenge, but you add in hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings and many women find it to be overwhelming.
One of the first things that crosses your mind when you are in a demanding time of menopause is – make it stop! Emotionally and physically, you are tired of the whole thing. You can be very vulnerable to instant answers.
Don’t let this time of discord and hormonal changes push you into even greater long term problems. Don’t turn to short term answers for immediate gratification. It’s a time to stop and think about what boundaries are important to you when you are in the right mood! Sometimes in the “heat of things” you can make short term decisions that don’t offer long term solutions.
This could be especially tempting if you subscribe to the school that “you only live once, I’m going to do anything I please.”  Boundaries are a part of life and they apply just as much as we get older as they did when we were younger. Don’t use menopause as an excuse to sink into behaviors you’ve outgrown. Patience, wisdom, and knowledge go a long way, much further than spur of the moment decisions.
Embrace answers like Remifemin® menopause relief.* We’ll get to everything Remifemin can do for you in just a moment, but if you are struggling with setting good boundaries as a menopausal woman, please consider these points.
  1. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone. Talk to other women you know are in menopause, or perhaps you have a family member who is good at advice.
  2. Talk to your doctor. If you don’t feel your doctor is a good listener, it’s time to get a different doctor! Be honest…they see a lot of people, and you should never be embarrassed to talk to your doctor about anything.
  3. Set up some accountability for yourself. Tell your partner, spouse, or a good friend that this is a hard time for you, and if they see you breaking the boundaries they know you would normally find  uncomfortable, give them permission to tell you the truth.
Now, back to Remifemin.  Remifemin has RemiSure® Black Cohosh, a proprietary type of black cohosh that relieves the discomfort of hot flashes, night sweats, moods swings and irritability.*  It is a clinically tested product for relief of menopausal symptoms.*
You need to give Remifemin time to work – as long as 12 weeks for some ladies when taken as directed. It allows you to have an effective alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and is a smart decision for menopause.
