“Dammit … It IS Menopause!” is a collection of journal entries written over a 15-year period while Bartlett was experiencing perimenopause symptoms including night sweats, mood swings, memory loss, weight gain, depression, anxiety and insomnia. The book is described by the author as lighthearted, yet solutions-oriented, spiritual resource that looks behind the scenes at what many women experience during this phase of their life. It was written with the intent to offer support, hope and encouragement to women suffering with similar symptoms.
“What started as a way to survive my negative self-talk and the way I felt about my changing body became a collection of inspirational daily meditations. During perimenopause, I felt terribly alone and feared I was losing my mind. Through a number of self-loving practices — physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual — I learned to embrace the transition and thrive. I quit dieting, overcame disordered and emotional eating, and made peace with my weight and food. I share my thought-provoking, yet humorous, writings with other women so they know they are not alone and can learn to love their body and their life,” said Bartlett.
