The secret to surviving menopause

I often ask myself, "Am I going mad?" As the brain fog rolls in and my energy drastically dips. But then I remember the secret to surviving menopause and feel that yes, "I am going mad, but in a good way!"

You can bet she'd be keen on getting her money's worth and have a massage every day. And she couldn't be blamed for requesting the odd bit of shoulder work in-between times too.   Those of us who are less well financially resourced can only dream of a massage twice a day.
