I am a 46 year old woman, and do not want to treat perimenopause and menopause as a disease. It is a natural part of life. I want to find articles on how to accept and enjoy our aging process. Our modern culture places all value on youth. We need to learn that their is value and worth in all stages of life. I am an RN and have seen many women at all stages of life and have found true beauty comes from within, not from chemicals, surgeries, or other attempts to find the fountain of youth.
