Menopause, Breast Cancer, Depression, Fibroids and Sexual Abuse are just a few of the health-related issues middle-aged women find themselves facing, according to Baby Boomer Author and Expert, Beverly Mahone.
Beginning the week of September 17, 2006, women from all walks of life with share their near death experiences and stories of survival against the odds with Ms. Mahone on her internet radio program called Whatever! The author of the book, Whatever! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age, wrote about her experiences in dealing with perimenopause, fibroids and depression and acknowledges that her own mother never prepared her in advance for what was to come. She says, "I don't think my mom ever fully understood what was going on with her physically or mentally because back then menopause and its symptoms were as taboo as mental illness."
The first guest in the series is an Oregon woman who talks about the dark journey she ventured off into after going into full blown menopause at the age of 36. She also informs listeners on how she finally saw the light after several drug induced years.
According to Ms. Mahone, the month-long health series is designed to inform and educate women on the symptoms and signs they should be on the lookout for in determining a health issue. "But even more importantly," says Ms. Mahone, "it's hopefully going to help men understand how to help and support the women they love."
