Modern culture doesn’t quite know what to make of our midlife time of change.

If you are at the point where you feel confused, your choices seem to make others unhappy, and denial is making your life worse, then get help! Most women make the transition into menopause without experiencing depression, but many women report symptoms of moodiness, depressed mood, anxiety, stress, and a decreased sense of well-being during perimenopause. The trouble is the pressing feelings of being alone and the need to make this process one’s path often make it all the more difficult to find outside help.
