Is It Me or My Hormones?
Understanding Midlife ChangeBook - 2006 | 2nd ed
This is the question most asked by women in their middle years (ages 35 to 55) who are experiencing physical and emotional changes. This widely acclaimed book, initially self-published by gynaecologist Dr Margaret Smith and psychotherapist Patricia Michalka, Is It Me or My Hormones? achieved widespread endorsement from doctors, counsellors and readers for its relevant, compassionate approach to the lives of women. This revised and updated edition includes developments in the prescribing of Hormone Replacement Therapy. Experience has shown Margaret Smith and Patricia Michalka that not all women need or want hormone therapy at this time and, indeed, not everything that happens at this time of life is due to hormones. In this book, the authors draw on their own experiences and those of their clients to help explain how to sort out the confusion caused by the interaction of hormones and life events. Their writing reflects the rich tapestry of so many lives, full of humour, confusion, clarity, compassion and practical guidance - both medical and psychological.
