Women in midlife and having a lot of responsibilities oftentimes don’t feel well. They might lack energy, are not able to think clear, are forgetful and completely stressed out.
Or they just don’t feel themselves anymore.
A good chance you have got some or maybe all of the above mentioned symptoms and a good chance as well that you’re totally not happy with this situation.
You struggle on, until maybe one day you think you have had enough and you go to see your doctor and hope there will be a solution for your problems.
If you lay all of your symptoms on the table, a lot of women get the label ‘burnout’ thrown at them. Many doctors don’t even consider menopause when a woman doesn’t feel well. Your regular GP isn’t really trained in menopause or just don’t think of it.
And maybe this woman who went to the doctor doesn’t think of it either. She just feels tired, brittle and insecure.
Both relate it to work, while maybe there isn’t always big pressure at work.
Often menopause symptoms are confused with burnout symptoms.
Well, the two can be related. Severe menopause symptoms can trigger burnout, but in that case the origin is physical then. These women will get the wrong diagnosis and the wrong prescription.
Knowing that it isn’t a burnout but your menopause can also give relief.
When you’re in menopause you can also suffer from heart irregularities and this triggers fear and stress, which on its turn triggers more symptoms.
Or if you’re sometimes experiencing brain fog, you might think you’re on the way to dementia.
So, if you know that all of your symptoms are related to menopause and there is a way to work on that, it gives relief and it gives you the power to do something about it. Sometimes even with non-invasive options like lifestyle changes.
Also, knowing that menopause won’t last the rest of your life, gives comfort.
The menopause is inevitable, but the symptoms tend to be more severe among women who push themselves too hard.
Then another thing might be that a lot of successful women tend to have low self-esteem, as strange as this may sound. These women are running the whole time and don’t apply self-care or self-love, so they’re not asking for help and they don’t set boundaries with kids, their partner or at work.
A lot of things therefore you can do and change yourself, although that’s not always easy to do.
With the help of somebody who digs into your symptoms, your home and work situation, who holds up a mirror so you will be able to see what you are doing, and maybe more importantly, what you’re not doing, it will be so much easier.
If you’re ready for change and you’re looking for help, then look no further.
